TMT Steel – Inner strength of buildings and houses


TMT Steel Most people are particular about what cement or what paint to use when building a house, but don’t pay much attention to the brand quality of the steel bars, which really play a critical role in the strength and durability of the building. The general outlook of Malayalees when building their house is […]

Steel that survives earthquakes


Ductility of steel bars provide earthquake resistance Concrete which is just made up of cement, sand and water is likely to break when it is stretched or twisted even by a small degree. This is because it has very low tensile strength. But when steel bars of optimum ductility goes into this concrete, they indirectly […]

Strength Vs. Ductility


Steel Steel is a metal with great tensile strength and ductility. It can extend these qualities to concrete. In other words, it reinforces concrete. Steel in the form of bars has been doing this job for more than a century now. Naturally, the quality of steel has an important role in deciding the quality of […]

The Genesis of Steel

blog3 (1)

Steel, an alloy of iron and carbon, is produced in a two-stage process. First, the raw material—is smelted, producing molten iron. In the second stage, iron is converted into steel by removing impurities such as sulfur, phosphorus and excess carbon and adding alloying elements such as manganese, nickel, chromium and vanadium. The molten steel is […]

Why TMT Steel Bars are an Ideal Choice in Earthquake-Prone Areas?


You will not be surprised to know that the Indian subcontinent is one of the most seismically active regions in the world, as it falls within the high seismic risk zone known as the ‘ring of fire. Weak geology and poor building construction standards have made it even more prone to earthquakes. It’s not news that earthquakes are […]

TMT Steel Bars: What Makes Them Superior to Regular Steel and TOR Steel?


In the world of steel, there are many different types available. However, when it comes to reinforcing bars, there are only two main varieties: TMT and ordinary (also known as “standard”) steel. Both types of steel bars have different uses and benefits, which is why knowing the difference between TMT and TOR steel is so important. Understanding their similarities […]
