REDEFINING STEEL MAKING – BENEFITS OF ELECTRO 500 D LPS
Electrotherm Steel | September 27, 2019
The Electro 500 D LPS bars are high strength steel bars that are known for their reliable properties such as high ductility, superior resistance to corrosion, superior resistance to ageing and high-quality rib patterns. Hardly containing any scrap metals, these bars offer superior services for a variety of applications.
HIGH DUCTILITY AND HIGH STRENGTH
ET-500 D LPS bars offer the rare combination of excellent ductility with high strength. The tensile strength to yield strength or UTS/YS ratio of the Fe 500 D steel TMT bars is 1.15. This is greater than standard specifications recommended as per the IS 1786:2008.
RESISTANCE TO AGEING
The various mechanical properties of the ET-500 D LPS bars like elongation and strength do not exhibit any significant change over a period of time.
SUPERIOR RESISTANCE TO CORROSION
The lack of torsional residual stress in this Fe 500D TMT Bars along with lower carbon content offers better corrosion resistance. The martensitic layer present at the outer surface, as well as formation of an adherent scale film caused by water quenching while rolling further, enhances the corrosion resistance of the ET-500 D LPS bars.
EXCELLENT WORKABILITY AND BENDABILITY
The unique microstructure of the ET 500 D LPS bars gives rise to a rebar that offers excellent bendability. The ductile core and tough exterior layer of the martensite give rise to enhanced bendability and workability.
SUPERIOR RIB PATTERN
The ET 500 D LPS bars come with a precise, parallel and uniform rib pattern that leads to superior bond strength when used with concrete. Uniformity of rib pattern in the 500 D LPS TMT bars promotes uniform strong bonding along with concrete for the whole structure. As 500 D LPS TMT bars manufacturers, we make use of CNC machines for the machining of rolls to achieve uniformity of the rib pattern.
Percentage elongation and UTS/YS ratio are vital properties for a rebar that speak about its ability to withstand the pressure of an earthquake. The ET 500 D LPS bars come with higher resistance for cyclic loading conditions. Due to their enhanced seismic resistant properties, they are strongly recommended in various earthquake prone areas.
The low carbon content of the ET 500 D LPS bars guarantees excellent weldability. It also ensures faster and easier welding without preheating. It gives rise to safer and stronger weld joints as well as a reduction in the amount of wastage while carrying out welding at the site.
HIGHER FATIGUE STRENGTH
The Electro 500 D LPS bars have a fatigue strength that is at par with the requirements as set by International Standards.
