Product Description

Rebar cap prototype for manufacturer--- Suggested material: Acrylate polymer (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Acrylate_polymer) for its high tensile strength, elasticity and weathering...

Alternate Material: Acrylic, Bright color plastics that make rebars visible

 Statistics;
"OSHA statistics show that 61% of construction accidents were due to impalement from rebar" (https://www.osha.gov/SLTC/etools/construction/falls/rebaraccident.html). Plastic rebar caps do not always withstand the weight of an individual that falls on it. It's a hazard for construction workers who work around the rebars especially on ladders and other heights before concrete pourover.  Also, since they are loosely placed on the rebar, they come off easily (eg. in windy weather) resulting in added replacement expenses. 

 A tightly sealed rebar cap made of an acrylate polymer would easily solve that issue.
Many sites require waterproofing, maintanence and security at night. A Bright colored plastic with waterproof glo paint may also reduce casualties due to low visibility.
