For all type of construction purposes Steel Bars play a vital role. Steel bar act as an aggregator to increase the longevity of the structure.

Thermo Mechanically Treated (TMT) bars are widely accepted for elongation property. It provides the right combination of Strength and Flexibility. TMT bars can be bent up to 180 degrees without any crack and it saves up to 20% of steel over HYSD bars.

TMT Bars are available in different Grades such as Fe 415, Fe 500, Fe 550, Fe 600.
It is important to choose the right grade depending on the Seismic Zone you are going to do the construction. Different TMT Bars are the combination of more or less ductility.

The chart here below represents the different ductile property between Fe 415, Fe 500, Fe 550, Fe 600 TMT Bars.

The lesser amount of Strength with High Flexibility/Elongation

Moderately High Strength with High Flexibility /Elongation

Higher Strength with Low Flexibility/Elongation

Even Higher Strength with Very Low Flexibility/Elongation
