Advantages of JSW Neosteel over ordinary steel

In an RCC structure, reinforcement bars compensate for the lack of tensile strength of concrete. Therefor making the right choice when selecting the reinforcement bars becomes the key to attain structural soundness.

JSW Neosteel TMT Bars are manufactured using the Thermo Mechanical Treatment route and have high fatigue resistance to Seismic Loads because of the high UTS/YS ratio. Therefore JSW Neosteel TMT Bars become the obvious choice in earthquake prone areas. Use of JSW Neosteel TMT Bars enables one to achieve economy in design and construction of high rise buildings with improved seismic resistance. All this comes with the added advantages of superior weldability, corrosion resistance, ductility and durability.

JSW Neosteel TMT Bars are manufactured in state-of-the-art rolling mills, through extensive metallurgical process of producing steel followed by its rolling into bars which ensures uniform chemical and mechanical properties. On the other hand, ordinary TMT bars follow a not-so-modern manufacturing process that may result in the production of sub-standard TMT bars, which may endanger the structure thereby resulting in a threat to the safety and well-being of your family.

The superior product quality of JSW Neosteel TMT Bars can be attributed to two main features of the manufacturing process. The first being the production of steel from virgin iron ore and the second being the automated rolling process and complete control on the heat treatment process. The use of virgin iron ore coupled with the extensive metallurgical processes ensure that the steel is clean and is free from harmful elements like sulphur and phosphorus. Ordinary TMT bars use scrap metal as the primary input material, which in most cases is non-homogeneous and non-segregated. This results in inconsistent chemical composition which leads to non-uniform physical properties. Moreover, this leads to the presence of residual stresses in the TMT bars which reduces the ductility and load carrying capacity of the bars. This endangers the structure in case of an earthquake. The superior rolling process adopted by JSW ensures that JSW Neosteel TMT Bars have controlled size tolerance, best in the industry rib pattern, which ensures better bonding between cement and concrete. The efficacy of rib pattern is determined by a quantity known as the A/R Ratio. JSW Neosteel TMT Bars have the best A/R ratio, thus resulting in the best bond between steel and cement.
