CORROSSION RESISTANT CHARACTERISTICS
PULKIT- TMT is produced
by thermo-mechanical treatment and not by cold twisting. Therefore, there are
no torsional residual stresses in the bar, which result in superior corrosion
resistance characteristics compared to traditional cold twisted bars.
TMT due to its low carbon equivalent, has a weidability which is superior
to conventional cold twisted bars. It can be butt-welded or lap-welded using ordinary
rutile coated electrodes of matching strength. In manual arc welding no prewarming
or post heat treatment is necessary.
PULKIT bars are supplied with section weight
lower than the nominal and within permissible parameters.
