TMT bars and Structural Integrity

A building in only strong as its structure, this strength allows structures have an operation lifecycle of many years, right up to 200 years.  This operational longevity may seem long when seeing structures which are old than 500 years. The difference here is with respect to cost, the time taken to build these structures and much more metrics related to the construction field. For example, the Taj Mahal took 20 years and 20,000 workers were needed to finish the structure, no doubt the structure is a testament of the structural creativity and the structural integrity, the reason why it still stands. What modern architecture has built these of structures to be made at less cost, safer, and reduced number of workers as well. One of the reasons for this is concrete and the concrete is bonded with TMT bars.

Corrosion-resistant:

TMT rods are resistant to rust due to the manufacturing process where a coat of anti-rust is coated very early in the process. This is important as rust can reduce the operational lifecycle of a structure by as much as 70%.

Conducive to welding:

This is part of the corrosion resistance property of TMT Steel rods since they are convenient to weld, this means that the prospective coating leave enough allows them to be used in versatile and innovative structures.

Ductility:

TMT bars while are quite strong, despite the hard outer layer, the soft inner cores allows TMT bars to bent to shapes which increase the structural integrity of the structure.  This flexibility is one of the reasons why there has been a rise in the use of TMT bars.

Resilience:

When comes to the TMT bars, there is no competition as to speak. HYSD and Steel rods have failed when it comes to strength, ductility, and most importantly resilience.

Lower consumption of steel:

The biggest advantage is reduced price of construction when compared with steel rods and HYSD rods. Due to strength and ductility of TMT bars, a lesser number of rods are required. This reduces the cost associated with building homes and commercial structures.
