Since Metcon TMT steel bars have a uniform layer structure, they also possess uniform thickness in every meter of its length. Hence the buyer gets optimum amount of steel in every meter of Metcon TMT steel. Inferior steel bars with varying thicknesses would result in the buyer shelling out more money when buying his required quantity of steel. (Remember, steel is priced according to its weight) in other words, the buyer of Metcon TMT steel would enjoy more savings in steel.
After the multi-stage thermo mechanical treatment, the hot-rolled steel bars are cut by cold shears and water quenched. The water quenching results in the formation of a hardened outer layer (Tempered Martensite) and ductile inner core (Ferrite Pearlite). These distinctly formed layers impart corrosion resistance, unmatched tensile strength and excellent ductility to METCON TMT Steel.
A customer’s limitations to verify the quality of steel has been overcome by our trustworthy certifications and our expansive network of 500 loyal dealers across Kerala. Each TMT steel bar carries the Metcon ISI TMT mark in every meter of its length. Every bundle is denoted by batch numbers and accurate diameter information. The TMT Fe 415 grade is marked by Orange color at its ends.
METCON TMT Steel bars have a uniform and concentrated hardened periphery, with a softer core that has the desired tensile strength coupled with high elongation, specially required in seismic zones. Our TMT bars are the new generation and high strength ribbed reinforcement bars having superior mechanical properties in strength, weldability, ductility, and bendability, meeting International quality standards.
Metcon has always nurtured honesty at the heart of its growth and existence. Ever since 2003, when a team of engineers joined forces to make a true change in the quality of steel, Kerala has warmed up to Metcon Steel. Unique layer formation*, great tensile strength, excellent ductility and unmatched corrosion resistance make it the first choice of architects, masons and homemakers.
