Although similar in dimensions, fiberglass reinforcing has distinctly different structural properties when compared to conventional steel reinforcement. This is a question better answered by the fiberglass reinforcing industry or the structural engineering community. As the American Shotcrete Association, we do not get involved in the engineering design of structural sections. However, it should be pointed out that properly designed and applied shotcrete provides a very corrosion-resistant environment around embedded steel reinforcement, providing excellent long-term durability in normal exposure conditions.
