Do TMT bars really prevent corrosion

Constructing buildings is not an easy task, It requires a lot of resources, technical skills, dedication and commitment. When we talk about the resources, the most vital components for constructing buildings are reinforced steel and concrete. Reinforced steel is primarily known for its excellent strength and ductility which provides the necessary strength to withstand the load of the structure. However, there are several factors that can affect the strength of the steel in such a way that it becomes extremely dangerous to the whole structure, and one such factor is rusting.

Corrosion Prevention on Reinforcement Bars Part – I

Corrosion Prevention on Reinforcement Bars fe415 rightsteel

Corrosion is not something to be taken lightly. It poses a dangerous threat to the overall strength of the building structure. Corrosion starts out pretty much simple and advances through several stages that result in the eventual collapsing of the structure. Even though corrosion is threatening for RCC, there are preventive measures that can be taken to considerably delay the corrosion effects.

The last blog described the universal problem affecting the RCC which is corrosion / rusting and what are the causes of corrosion. In order for a Reinforced structure to have corrosion, the presence of these two components is needed which is moisture and air. Usually, corrosion starts out slowly and results in severe damages which in turn affects the structural integrity of the building.

Thermo Mechanically treated steel bars created the current standard of reinforcement. Their excellent tensile strength and ductility make them ideal and preferred for construction of building structures. Building structures are always susceptible to environmental changes. No building will ever be the same once the environmental changes kick in. Out of all the changes, the most serious and devastating is corrosion.

Steel has been used for many decades by many civilizations for building structural and engineering purposes, they have continued prove very effective in both land and marine environments due their unique combination of mechanical properties which gives them natural protection against natural variables. Where steel stumbles as the ultimate building block is with its corrosion by various environmental actions. When it comes to modern construction, generally, the concrete mix is reinforced by steel bars in the case of the common RCC structures.
