1) Resistance to natural calamities :
Natural calamities such as earthquakes, hurricanes, etc. can be life-threatening to people and their homes. It is necessary for the construction’s foundations and structures to be completely secure and strong enough to withstand the tremors and damages that can potentially occur. DS TMT bars are the ideal choice for geographic locations that are a victim of natural calamities as they have maximum tensile strength and are ductile enough to hold their own. On the other hand, regular TMT bars have low tensile strength which can have a serious negative impact on the structural integrity and foundation of structures.
2) The quality of combustibility :
Constructions can often catch fire. In order for security and safety to prevail constantly, the necessary measures need to be taken. Regular TMT bars can be compliant with fires, but their integrity can be put to the real test and compromised by extremely high temperatures. Vis a vis, DS TMT bars can withstand temperatures up to 400-600° celcius! They can absorb heat valiantly and are extremely heat resistant. Quite a remarkable feat, isn’t it? You should definitely opt for DS TMT bars to choose the best for your construction.
3) Resistance to corrosion :
Corrosion can prove to be a major drawback to the robustness of your construction. Here is where DS TMT bars are your saviour! The Icon Steel DS TMT bars are produced with Thermex technology that originated from Germany, which is thermo-mechanically engineered corrosive and rust resistant. Regular TMT steel bars do not have a high resistance to corrosion and need to go through a lot of processes in order to become anti-corrosive and retain resistance to rust.
4) Amount of carbon content :
DS TMT steel has characteristics of low carbon. It consequently is more weldable and does not develop cracks at the joints. Even though regular TMT bars have a shallow carbon content and are relatively pliable and weldable, their sudden yielding at joints can result in broad cracks.
At Icon Steel, we have heavily been involved in the steel industry for more than 30 years, constantly on the lookout to reshape and evolve the qualities of TMT bars with our solid and extensive research. As manufacturers of DS TMT Steel Bars, providing the perfect balance of ductility and strength in our steel products is our motto.
