he unique ribbed pattern on the TMT bars also provides extra strength by bonding them more tightly with concrete.
The TMT manufacturing process imparts anti-rust properties to the bars. Coarse carbides are the main culprits for corrosion in steel.
TMT bars can withstand temperatures ranging from 400 to 600 degrees Celsius; this ensures the building’s structural integrity even during a fire.
The soft core of the TMT bars imparts a high level of ductility- giving the structures made with TMT more leeway to manage dynamic and seismic loading.
TMT bars have higher tensile strength and better elongation value, which basically means you need less steel for the same amount of construction.
