For construction projects selection of best available materials with quality is very essentials, XTech TMT brings Earthquake resistance property, Superior weldability, Excellent bonding with cement, Excellent Bandability, Corrosion resistance, Greater resistance to fire. TMT bars are available in Fe-500/500D, Fe-500 D, Fe-550, and Fe-550 D with sizes ranging from 6 mm to 32 mm. XTECH TMT steel and rebar’s are ISO 9901, ISO 14001, ISO18001, & ISO50001 certified and are produced by fully automatic, computerized machines with advanced German technology and design. Each lot of Xtech’s high flexibility bars carries a test certificate for mechanical properties and chemical composition when dispatched.
Eartquake Resistant Properties
XTECH TMT bars have been proven to have higher resistance to cyclic loading conditions and are recommended in the earthquake prone areas due to their superior seismic resistance properties. X-tech TMT bars meet international specification for the UTS/YS ration thereby providing them with high strength and high ductility. High UTS/YS ration and more percentage elongation signify that the steel is capable to strain harder, in the event of an earthquake due to high elongation and flexibility above 18%
Superior Weldability: Low Level Carbon
Low level of carbon ensure easier and faster welding without preheating. This means stronger and safer weld joints & reduction in wastage during welding at site.
Excellent Bonding With Cement: Uniform and X ribed Pattern
XTECH TMT bar have precise, uniform and cross rib pattern engraved through computer controlled notch making machine, resulting in excellent bond strength with concrete. Cross ribd on XTECH TMT bars are produced by a high speed finishing multiroll stand which is an ultra heavy duty stand using Tungsten Carbide ring that impact close dimensional tolerance with superior surface finish.
Excellent Bendability: Turboquench Technology
Due to the highly controlled process that ensures a microstructure with a soft(ferrite and Pearilte) core, XTECH TMT bars have excellent bendability (with intact high strength) facilitating easy bending, making work easier and faster at the construction sites.
Steel in concrete is usually in a non-corroding, passive condition. However when corrosive element like chloride from the sea water, soil salinity or carbon, nitrogen oxide from atmospheric pollution enter concrete, they disrupt the passive layer protecting the steel, causing rust and leading to a loss of bond between the steel and the concrete. The parallel rib pattern in XTECH TMT rebars created in the final finishing stand eliminates the chance of torsion residual stress. This coupled with low carbon content leads to superior corrosion resistant properties as compared to the ordinary rebars.
Greater Resistance to Fire
The quenching and the self tempering treatment at the temperature of approximately 670 degree Celsius in a consistent and thick layer of tempered martensitic-ring on the outer surface of the rebar imparting higher capacity to retain strength at elevated temperatures.
