Reval is the trade mark for the five most popular stainless steel grades of reinforcement bar manufactured by Acciaierie Valbruna S.p.A, these being:
- 1.4162 (Lean Duplex)
- 1.4301 (304 S31)
- 1.4362 (Lean Duplex)
- 1.4436 (316 S33)
- 1.4462 Duplex
The quality of the reinforcing bar produced under the Reval trade mark is a result of a very close co-operation between Acciaierie Valbruna and the European Academic world devoted to the problems of concrete structure durability within aggressive corrosion environments.
