Welding of rebar
Reinforcing steel bars are manufactured using multiple processes and usually have a ribbed profile. Given this fact, it is clear that a special level of skill and technical knowledge is required of both welders/welders and welding supervision, and that special procedures must be adopted for quality assurance.
ISO 17660 applies to the welding/welding of weldable/weldable reinforcing steel and stainless steel reinforcing steel for load-bearing joints in the fabrication shop or on site. The standard specifies material, design and fabrication requirements for welded/welded joints, welding personnel, quality requirements, inspection and testing.
Welded joints of rebar can be divided into load-bearing welded joints and non-bearing welded joints.
According to EN 1090-2, already for construction class EXC 2 non-loadbearing joints, the welding of reinforcing steel to structural steel should be carried out according to the recommendations given in the EN ISO 17660 series. On the other hand, for load-bearing joints it is absolutely necessary to qualified welding technology.
