Why TIGER TMT Provides the Best Protection for Buildings in Nigeria

There have been global advancement in building technics and designs that meet the requirements of the changing times. This advancement has helped in the construction of mass housing, and has reduced the deficits in the industry through timely delivery as well as quality provision.

Nigeria has also seen this advancement as major cities like Abuja, Lagos, Port Harcourt, Kano and others boast of many architectural masterpieces with awestruck designs. But as improvement in building technics began to set in, so did the need to construct strong buildings and infrastructures, considering the fact that Nigerian cities are prone to natural and man-made disasters such as floods and fire outbreak.

This brought in the use of Thermo-Mechanically-Treated (TMT) iron rods instead of local iron rods. TMT iron rod has become a very important component in the construction process because when combined with cement and concrete, it gives great strength to structures and protects them from cracking, spalling and collapsing even during natural disasters and fire.

This explains why it is not only used in building of houses but also in construction of bridges, flyovers and other civil engineering structures. The major challenge being experienced by builders in Nigeria is how to get high quality TMT brand. However, with TIGER TMT iron rod, the best TMT brand suitable for all construction works, the fears of all construction experts and homeowners have been allayed.

Build with TIGER TMT Iron Rod

TIGER TMT iron rods are high quality iron rods manufactured with a unique process that creates a combination of unmatchable strength and perfect ductility. The matchless strength makes it ideal for all types of construction.

How TIGER TMT Iron Rod Protects Structures

TIGER TMT iron rod has several indisputable qualities that make it protect structures from both natural and environmental factors that may affect them.

  • High yield strength
  • TIGER TMT iron rod passes through automated quenching process that gives it unique high yield strength.

    This makes TIGER TMT iron rod ideal for all types of construction such as dams, bridges flyovers, concrete roads, industrial structures, underground structures, general purpose reinforcement structures made of concrete, individual houses and all critical structures.

  • Solid Bonding
  • TIGER TMT iron rod is produced with the most advanced 3D laser technology which gives every rod produced uniform rib structure. The uniform rib structure ensures the iron rod bond perfectly with cement and concrete.

    By bonding perfectly with concrete and cement, TIGER TMT provides unmatchable strength to buildings and structures, and makes them free of defects such as seepage, cracks and moisture. This improves the longevity, durability and ultimately the lifespan of the building.

  • Perfect ductility
  • TIGER TMT iron rod goes through the most advanced and fully-automated quenching process that makes the inner part softer and the outer part harder. This gives it perfect ductility that makes it resist earthquake and other natural disasters.

    TIGER TMT iron rod can be bent without cracking or breaking because it undergoes fatigue test which gives it perfect elongation.

  • Thermal Stability
  • Automated labs and most modern testing equipment are used to test the micro-structure of TIGER TMT. This gives every rod produced the right chemistry that makes it withstand any type of moist condition and extreme temperature.

  • Greater Corrosion Resistance
  • TIGER TMT iron rod has greater anti-corrosion properties than any other brand. This is enabled by the automated labs and the most modern testing equipment which are used to test the micro-structure.

    By resisting corrosion, TIGER TMT is able to bear huge load of a complete structure and protect it from spalling and cracking.
