TMT Facts

Important Facts on TMT Bar

TMT bars are one of the most important construction materials that are widely used for building earthquake-resistant structures. The ribbed TMT bars from the best TMT Bar Manufacturers provide better reinforcement to any concrete structure, thus, minimizing damages during any seismic activities. Let’s take a look at a few quick facts about TMT bars:
The true strength of TMT bar lies in the optimum balance between Toughness and Flexibility (Elongation). Choosing the Best TMT bars are one of the most important facts when it comes to choosing the right building materials.

  • TMT bars are been used in all constructional projects which made from the latest technological process and comes with high strength.
  • With the new edge, technological innovation TMT bars are being produced with the latest technology called ‘Thermex’. In this process after the final rolling, it subjected to sudden cooling. It makes the bars strong optimally to its level and also the core become soft.
  • Due to high ductility bars are being produced in the number of grades which are Fe: 415, Fe: 500 and Fe: 550. These bars are being used in the construction of buildings, bridges, various types of plants, Concrete Structural base etc.
  • New edge TMT bars are earthquake resistant and it can be used in all type of construction projects due to its extremely bending ability. It can be broadened to match up exactly how you want it to be for your constructional structure.
  • TMT bars are fully corrosion resistant, rust resistant and these bars are mandatory to be used in coastal and humid tract. It intensifies the durability for the longer period.
  • Thermo Mechanically Treated Bars are fire and heat defiant and it helps to prevent any hazard.
  • TMT bars have high weld-ability for which these being used for weld joints by keeping the construction structure unchanged.
  • Manufacturing process of a TMT bar save 20% of the steel than the usual. Hence, the production cost becomes even lower.

Shyam Steel manufactures 500D TMT bars and why 500D is the right option let’s see the facts below.

  • West Bengal comes under high seismic zone. This needs to be taken care under the consideration factor when you are choosing your TMT bar when it comes to build your dream home.
  • A TMT bar with higher strength might seem like the obvious and better choice. You may think Fe 550 is better than Fe 500 or Fe 600 is better that Fe 550. Well, this does not hold true and not at all for earthquake prone zones.
  • Why 500D TMT is the best choice?
Fe 500D Fe 550 Fe 600
Moderately High Strength with High Flexibility /Elongation Higher Strength with Low Flexibility/Elongation Even Higher Strength with Very Low Flexibility/Elongation

Therefore, Fe 500D is the best choice amongst TMT bars because it has the right balance of strength and flexibility to remain structurally stable and strengthen more. However Fe550 and Fe 600 lack this right balance and are prone to breakage under extreme pressure.

What sets Shyam Steel Apart?


  • A. Unlike other brands Shyam Steel is the only TMT manufacturer who uses the integrated steel plant by using state of the art facility.
