At Strucsol we provide the highest grade reinforcing stitching wire- manufactured in the UK out of 304 CU Austenitic stainless steel, unlike lower grade alternatives manufactured from ferritic stainless steel. This means that it has high linear strength and corrosion resistance allowing for consistent maximum bond strength gain when paired with the grout or resin bonding adhesive.
Strucsol Ultrabar can be used with great confidence and durability in areas of High salinity such as costal properties without fear of corrosion or fatigue failure. We recommend the use of Strucsol HS grout for bonding wires in Lime mortar, brick or stone walls where the slower curing times assists in gaining clean installation. However, we recommend the use of Strucsol E.A.S.F resin when immediate full bond strength is required.

5mm bar is used for reinforcement work in thin bed joint masonry.
6mm is the most commonly used and specified material for crack stitching and masonry beaming.
7mm bar is commonly used for grouted anchors installed through drilled pilot holes in addition to masonry beaming.
8mm bar is used for masonry beaming and grouted ties, where very high loads are expected
9mm bar is used for grouted ties and resin bonded anchors where high than normal loads are anticipated
10 mm bar is used for mechanically bonded anchors in timber and masonry.
