In the Philippines, the local term for rebars is “kabilya” but it may also be referred to by engineers and site personnel as reinforcing steel bars, deformed bars (debars) or concrete reinforcements. Consequently, we have the PNS 49 as the national rebar standard. To explain, it details the technical specifications of rebars per grade, class, and size and determines if a rebar is of standard quality.
To help clarify on the confusion regarding standard requirements, we made a comparison of the Philippines steel bars standard with both the international American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) A615 and A706 standards. Moreover, we also made a comparison with the Japanese Industrial Standard (JIS) G 3112. You can visit our website regularly for more updates.
