CONFIGURATION:

INCON ICST – Transition Coupler is composed of a female and male coupler sleeves swaged on two bars of different diameters to be connected. The female coupler sleeve is swaged on the bar with the larger diameter.

MAIN APPLICATION:

INCON ICST – Transition Coupler is widely used for connecting two bars of different diameters where the rotation and axial movement of at least one bar is allowed.

Features:

Applicable for high strength reinforcing bars up to ASTM Grade 75.
Satisfies the requirements of ACI 318, BS 8110, UBC 1997, NF 35-20-1 and DIN 1045.
Accurate and fast connection of steel bars of different diameters.
Easily installed and highly efficient for preparing the splice and assembly on site.
Accurate splice length control due to the precise coupler joint.
Highly reliable and consistent performance due to our swaging technology and enhanced coupler design.
Highly reliable and consistent performance due to our swaging technology and enhanced coupler design.
Compact design of the coupler to reduce reinforcement congestion.

AVAILABLE MATERIALS AND COATINGS:
