Important Facts on TMT Rebar

TMT Rebar is the backbone of all types of RCC (Reinforced Cement Concrete) structures. It is imperative that one should use quality TMT Rebar for the safe construction practice for the intending RCC structure.

Characteristics of good quality TMT bars are as given below.

    1. Higher strength and elongation
    2. Higher Corrosion Resistance
    3. Uniform quality across the Bar
    4. Consistent properties across the length of the Bar
    5. consistent rib pattern

These factors ensure the following:

  • Higher Durability
  • Higher Bond Strength with concrete
  • Easy Workability

  • TMT bars are generally available in Fe: 415/500/500D/550/600 Grades. TMT bars used in all major Infrastructure projects, Real Estate (both residential and commercial) projects and Retail building constructions.
  • TMT bars are generally available in Fe: 415/500/500D/550/600 Grades. TMT bars used in all major Infrastructure projects, Real Estate (both residential and commercial) projects and Retail building constructions.
  • A strength of TMT bars is exceptionally higher than conventional bars and it provides higher ductility.
  • While manufacturing the TMT bars no twisting or bending operations are employed upon the steel bars. In this process, it does not cause any secondary stress on steel materials which ensure superior corrosion resistance of TMT bars.
  • TMT bars are best suitable for any kind of RCC structure because it can easily cut & bend to the desired shape of the structural element.
  • TMT bar has high fatigue resistance to Dynamic / Seismic loads due to higher strength and ductility. This makes them most suitable for the use in Earthquake prone zones.
  • TMT bars are mostly preferred in construction industries due to its higher Fire resistance property.
  • TMT bars increases the durability of the building structure due to its higher strength, ductility and corrosion resistance.
  • TMT bars are having good weldability thus easy to use in welding joints in heavy RCC Structures
  • TMT bars helps to save 15% to 20% steel over conventional steel bars, thus it is economical to use.

 

The advantage of TMT bars is their tough surface providing high yield strength and a soft core providing excellent ductility. Strength, ductility, corrosion resistance and weldability are such properties which declare TMT bar highly economical and safe for use.
