Quick Detail:

Bartec type —Upset forging parallel thread rebar splicing coupler 

Adding length thread connection ——The best way to butt joint rebar cages that two reinforcing bars can’t be rotated.

Cold forging connection system


Product Feature

Bartec is parallel thread splicing system which is designed for Ø12 to Ø40mmASTM #4 to #8rebar conneciton. Designed and produced in compliance with Eurocode 2, BS 8110, DIN 1045, ACI 318, IBC, AASHTO, ASME Sec III Div 2

Product advantage

*No reducing of rebar cross sectional area

*Pass elongation test .

*Easy installation , no need torch wrench.

*one coupler can meet all connection requirement

*Manufactured under ISO 9001 standard and same strict quality guarantee.Tested by third party.

*Full traceability of raw material and production batch.

*Tested under several cyclic situation

*No bar conjunction problem happen.

*No large quantity of bars required.


*It can pass below test :

0.5 million times -coupler fatigue test,   

1.5 million times-coupler fatigue test,

2 million times-coupler fatigue test,

3.5 million times-coupler fatigue test, coupler fatigue test

The feature of adding length connection——It is suitable for the connection that two reinforcing bars can’t be rotated , butt joint the rebar cage. 

In many projects , the most common columns need large and dense rebar cages. During the rebar cage manufacturing , it is a common problem how to butt joint two rebar cage , adding length thread connection can help you connect fast and effectively with good quality guarantee.


1.Cold forging

The sawn end of rebar is enlarged by a patented cold forging process, the core diameter of the bar is increased to a pre-determined diameter

2.Make thread on the ends of rebar , one thread is addling length , the other thread is the standard length.

3.Screw the full coupler onto rebar end with adding length thread 

4.Finish the connection by screw back the coupler to the second bar.


* Upset forging the end of bar play the role of a mechanical extrusion , so the molecular structure is tighter , strength surpass the parent bar, increase the strength value in the tensile.

*The thread cross section area after cold forging is not less than parent bar , the area with thrust surface is larger or equal to the parent bar during the tensile test , so the strength of larger than parent bar.

Upset forging parallel thread connection is the best accepted connection way in the world, also the highest quality connection technology in rebar mechanical splicing, 100% higher than 1.1 to 1.3 times of parent rebar, bear the ultimate test 100% break on the bar outside coupler.

Coupler test steps

1. Purchase raw material    specified steel factory to produce steel pipe    inspect the surface of each batch of raw material before receiving  

Inspect the inner hole for each batch     Test the hardness for each batch  Test the chemical component for each batch , also do the tensile test for each batch of raw material     color marked for storing each batch


2. Qualified production    Record the products quantity and scrapped quantity for each production step     inspect for each 15 pcs coupler by operators

workshop routing inspection per hour ,  Casual inspection by workshop director each two hours    QC director do the casual inspection before storing each day

Warehouse director do the inspection for coupler each day  


3. All couplers have the serial number , or client’s customized mark , there is traceability from raw material’s number , heat number , batch number to the production worker’s code of each step , time of putting in storage , delivery time and arriving time , client’s inspection , start time of using the couplers, etc.

Connection methods :


Parallel thread standard splice

Easy connection by bar rotation until full thread engagement . Parallel thread : no risk of thread mis-match. No risk of cross-threading.

Adding length splice

Even when both bars can’t be rotated, use a JBCZ standard coupler . The coupler is fully engaged onto the extended thread of the connecting bar.

The assembly is simply completed by butting the bars end to end and screwing back the coupler onto the first bar until full engagement.

Bridging splice

When the end of reinforcing bar can’t be closed (such as the situation happened during producing rebar cage) , JBCZ bridging splice is the method to solve this problem.  Two ends of bar are threaded the standard length , then a ( bridging connection equipment ) is used to connect two reinforcing bars.

Reducing connection

When connect two bars with different diameters , in most situations , can reduce the rebar size with big diameter , then use standard coupler to connect it . But we recommend special reducing coupler , to avoid the difficult task of planning in advance the need of reducing couplers.

Terminal connection

It is a convenient alternative to hooked bars to provide end anchorages in congested areas. JBCZ standard anchorage heads are circular and have a net bearing area of 4 times or 9 times the cross-section of the bar.

Weldable couplers

For composite construction where concrete reinforcement bars must be welded to structural steel , use JBCZ weldable couplers, which are specially made from low carbon steel and which have a large chamfer for bevel welding.
