Has higher UTS/YS ratio that makes it resistant to seismic loads and be the best choice for earthquake prone areas.
Meets recognized specifications for the UTS/YS ratio, thereby providing constructions with high strength and high ductility.
Controlled water-cooling prevents the formation of coarse carbides which is the main cause for corrosion.
Raw materials used in the production of bars have low carbon content that lead to superior corrosion resistant properties.
Advantages of Rashmi TMT Bars:
Earthquake resistant: The Thermo Mechanical Treatment attributes higher elongation to the Rashmi 500D TMT Bars that make them resistant against earthquakes.
Corrosion resistant: At the time of manufacturing, the outer surface of Rashmi 500D TMT Bars form a hard Ferric Oxide layer in presence of moisture and air when they are treated on the Cooling Bed. This coating helps the bars resist against corrosion.
Fire resistant: In comparison to ordinary CTD bars and TOR steel bars, Rashmi TMT Bars are specially manufactured to tolerate heat up to 600? centigrade.
Extra strength and ductility: Combination of tempered martensite on the surface and fine grain ferrite-pearlite in the core provides higher strength, toughness and ductility to the TMT Bars.
Super bondability: TMT Bars strongly bond with their surrounding concrete that adds to the strength and firmness of the construction.
Higher weldability: Raw materials used in the production of TMT Bars have low carbon. This ensures higher weldablity of the bars.
Steel saving: Maintaining a low tolerance of sectional weight enables Rashmi TMT Bars to save 15% approx in steel consumption, compared to others.
