Welding warning over Chinese rebar | Grant Prior | Fri 16th January 2015

Construction companies are being urged to check their rebar stocks following the latest warning over the quality of Chinese imports.

Trade body UK Steel claims there could be problems with imported rebar containing small amounts of other elements added in order to qualify the steel as “alloy” and thus benefit from an export tax rebate.

UK Steel said a “significant” proportion of the Chinese rebar sold in the UK contains boron in excess of 8 parts per million with some samples tested containing boron at 30 ppm.
