Greater Corrosion Resistance
TIGER TMT iron rod has greater anti-corrosion properties enabled by the automated labs and the most modern testing equipment which are used to test the micro-structure.
This gives the iron rod the perfect chemistry and the right carbon content, thus providing it with the ability to withstand rust and corrosion.
Corrosion resistance in TMT iron rod is a critical factor in construction because corrosion has direct effects on reinforced concrete structures. It weakens the structure; reduces the bonding strength of the materials, limits the ductility, and reduces the shear capacity of the buildings.
Hence, by resisting corrosion, TIGER TMT is able to bear huge load of a complete structure, protect it from spalling and cracking, and enhances total life of the structure.
The composite and uniform micro-structure of TIGER TMT iron rod also gives it superior corrosion resistance properties as compared to local iron rods. Through this, even when the iron rod is exposed to water for longer periods, particularly during construction projects, rust doesnt form on the surface.
The assurance of TIGER TMT standards is restated by the fact that it is free of surface defects, which makes it perfect at withstanding torsional stress, thus making it highly corrosion resistant.
TIGER TMT undergoes unique tests to check for rusting through stringent salt corrosion testing methods.
