Abstract

Recycling has an important role in modern production and in environment preservation. Introduction of recycled PET ((Poly) Ethylene-terephthalate) as straps for reinforcement bars in concrete construction elements can help these important issues. By using an experimental method it is shown that PET straps made with minimal investment, on site and with manual production can replace "annealed" wire as element for connection of reinforcement bars. An overview of some regulation and procedures is presented and used for eligibility assessment of the proposed straps made of recycled material. Also an overview of commonly used connections is given so it can be compared with the proposed ones.
