The use of TMT bars is arguably one of the essential components during the construction of your dream home. While building our home, we are particular about which color to use or what cement to use, but very few possess proper knowledge about using TMT bars. We often tend to choose TMT bars based either on the price or popularity. In an expert’s opinion, one should never compromise when it comes to TMT bars. While building a dream home, we often consider it a one-time investment which will last for a generation or two but end up compromising with the TMT bar quality.
In this blog, we will talk about some essential features one must keep in mind while selecting the proper TMT bar.
- Beware of Fakes: Experts believe that there are more than 70% of the TMT manufacturers are rip-off of the original as they do not possess the proper infrastructure to produce quality bars. They often stamp their product with fake seals to fool their customers, and it becomes hard for a layperson to differentiate. The expert’s advice us to go with a brand who has got good reputation in the market and popular not due to their cheap price but due to their quality.
- Quality TMT bars possess excellent ductility: The advanced technology used in the production of TMT bars impart excellent ductile property to each bar which makes them efficient enough to withstand seismic shock with inflicting much damage to it. The mixture of sand, water and the cement will break into small pieces if its experience evens a small degree of twist. The ductile property of the steel bars comes in handy when two bars get welded and joined together.
- Quality means more gains: TMT steel bars are put through the stringent test before it gets labeled as TMT rods. As a result, it will possess qualities which a normal steel bar will not possess. The cost of the original TMT bars may seem to fall on the higher side of the cost scale, but fortunately, in the long run, it turns out to be a profitable deal. In TMT bars, the ratio of weight to length gets taken very seriously; as a result, there remains uniformity in it, whereas in ordinary steel rods, no such cares get taken. As a result, a person using the TMT bar will use less number of bars in comparison to a person using ordinary steel bars.
