What are TMT bars: TMT bars or Thermo-Mechanically Treated bars are high-strength reinforcement bars having a tough outer core and a soft inner core. TMT bars are used mainly in construction of every type of edifice from a skyscraper to a farm barn along with cement, concrete and other raw materials
Why are they important: TMT bars are very important because they are the back bone on which the construction stands. They are the spine and life of the structure
In the modern technological era, TMT Bar is manufactured using Thermex Technology, also known as TMX. Due to its high tensile strength, Thermex Technology TMT Bar is a high-quality TMT bar that can be used in all types of construction.
Production of desirable high-strength bars that satisfy all criteria for civil construction, including high yield strength, toughness, high elongation value, ductility, weldability, and outstanding bond characteristics, has been made possible by Thermax thermo-processing treatment. The Thermax technique employs a proprietary system to impart a quick, intense, yet extremely precise in-line cooling of the rolled bar.
A cooled, hardened output is the result of this process. When the bar is further cooled in the atmosphere, a thermal exchange (Thermax) takes place between the inside and cooled outside martensite surface. This results in a distinct tempered martensite structure at the bar’s perimeter and a fine-grained ferrite—pearlite structure at the centre.
ADVANTAGES OF Thermex Mechanically Treated BARS
