BUILDING HOMES THAT LAST 17% LONGER !
In reality homes built with ordinary TMT bars are said to have a lifespan of 50 – 60 years. At iSTEEL, we believe that homes should last even longer and can be enjoyed for generations. iSTEEL has come up with a magical formula through its R&D and association with industry experts. We offer a unique and special chemical composition of steel which now enables homes to last longer.
iSTEEL XLS TMT bars adds 17% longer life to your homes. We make a special alloy of steel with the desired quantity of copper, nickel and chromium.
1. Copper fills the pores and resists corrosion
2. Nickel toughens the steel and increases fatigue resistance
3. Chromium resists oxidation and arrests pitting corrosion
4. Lower carbon makes the steel more flexible and ductile
5. Concrete grip due to the unique infinity rib pattern.
iSTEEL XLS Long life TMT Bars
iSTEEL – NEW AND IMPROVED WITH THE POWER OF COPPER
Copper has been useful in our lives for generations. It is present in our bodies and used in making medicines and utensils. It is common knowledge that water stored in copper vessels is good for health as is food cooked in copper utensils. Our ancestors have known of the goodness of copper, and its benefits have been passed down generations.
We at iSTEEL keep innovating in every sphere of business as we believed that home owners deserve a world-class product. We now offer iSTEEL XLS TMT bars made with copper to ensure your home stays strong and resists corrosion for generations.
Ready Made Steel is a solution that is used widely in the developed countries. It is a big no to:
Corrosion weakens the reinforced concrete, the rusting on steel occupies twice the volume of the original steel bar and this creates a pressure, which causes cracking and subsequent spalling of the surrounding concrete. When it comes to corrosion, the rule to follow is that ‘Prevention is better than Cure’.
iSTEEL XLS TMT bars are approved by BIS under CML No. 6121345 as “High strength deformed steel bars and wires for concrete reinforcement (TMT) low alloy steel, Gr. Fe500”. Our bars were tested for corrosion resistance against 3 reputed Indian steel brands at the National Metallurgical laboratory, Jamshedpur and the results say it all. iSTEEL XLS TMT bars have been found to have the lowest corrosion rate.
ALTERNATE IMMERSION TEST
SULPHUR DIOXIDE TEST
This is something people probably consider relatively unimportant. Truth is, steel bars need to bear a lot of stress while being bent to the desired shape. They also need to stretch when you put a lot of weight on it. If the steel doesn’t flex, it can snap over time under the weight. iSTEEL XLS TMT bars have minimum elongation of 18% which enables it to withstand high pressure without breaking.
Our computer-controlled TMT process ensures high quality water quenching thus giving the bar excellent bendability along the entire length of the bar. Uniform elongation of minimum 6% gives the bar excellent bend and rebend capabilities, which are critical for seismic areas. Buildings built with iSTEEL XLS TMT bars have a better capacity to absorb the energy generated by earthquakes, resulting in higher evacuation time.
