THE NEW STEEL

Reinforcing steel conforming to the new Standard NZS3402, released in December 1989, has been commercially available and widely used over the past year. The following article takes a view of the new steel from an industry perspective, and looks at the following problems: trial batch releases of grade 275 or 380 conforming to New Zealand Standard NZS 3402p: 1973; bar marks; bar designation; modification of bends as specified in NZS 3109 by individual designers, and the possibility of eliminating grade 300.
