Just as human beings cannot stand without their backbone, similarly, no construction can stand without its backbone – TMT steel bars. They are capable of bearing the load of columns, beams, slabs and buildings together with the weight of people. Besides, they are manufactured with great strength which enables them to withstand all kinds of natural calamities like earthquake and sandstorm.
Now, there are low quality steel bars also in the market that are harmful for any construction as they do not contain the required physical and chemical properties. However, buyers have become quite aware and educated about this and they do not pick anything other than TMT bars. TMT bars price whether in Burdwan or in Nadia or in any other place for that matter are quite affordable.
TMT Steel Bars and Its Kinds
TMT bars are manufactured using a special metallurgical process called, Thermo Mechanical Treatment which provides them with enhanced strength, ductility and other properties. Fe500D and Fe500 are two high quality TMT bars available across the market.
What is the difference of Fe500 and Fe500D steel bars?
It is quite natural that common people are not aware of the distinction between these varieties of bars. In the two varieties, “Fe” stands for ‘iron’, “500” denotes minimum stress yield N/mm2 and “D” implies higher ductility.
These bars contain low percentages of phosphorus and sulphur which can cause harm to steels because with high concentration of sulphur, these steel bars cannot survive in extremely high temperature and with high phosphorus, they will brittle in extreme cold. They also have low carbon content for improved weldability and ductility.
Now, how Fe500 distinct from Fe500D? Well, both these TMT bars are widely used for varied types of constructions.
- Their difference between these two bars lies in their overall ductility. Fe500D steel bars have higher ductile strength than Fe500 bars. Tensile strength for both is the same. Only their ductility makes them distinct.
- Again, Fe500D bars can absorb sudden weights and hence, they are ideal to withstand natural disasters like tsunamis, cyclones and earthquakes. They are mostly used in areas prone to frequent seismic activities.
So, for these qualities, even if Fe500D TMT bars price is a little more than other varieties of TMT bar, people and builders are ready to pay for it. Safety and security of one’s structure is what every individual wishes for and they are willing to pay for their safety.
