Concrete and TMT iron rod must act together in reinforced concrete structure even though they are two different materials. This is to give the structure ability to bear the huge load it is designed to bear, and resist forces. However, this can only happen when the concrete holds the TMT iron rod firmly to form the strongest bond through unique rib pattern of the iron rod.
This is why TIGER TMT iron rod is produced with the most advanced 3D Laser Technology that gives each rod a uniform rib structure. This special ribbed design makes TIGER TMT form a stronger bond with concrete and cement, thus providing additional support and unmatchable strength to the whole structure.
This is in contrast to local iron rod which has non-uniform rib structure and weaker bonding throughout the structure.
Also, due to the good chemistry that gives TIGER TMT good surface and the critically-designed ribs that enable it bond well with concrete and cement, its fatigue strength is greatly superior to local iron rods.
Hence, by bonding perfectly with concrete and cement, TIGER TMT is able to make buildings and structures free of defects such as seepage, cracks and moisture which can cause structural damage, thereby improving their durability, longevity, and lifespan.
