What Is Iron ? Know About Fe500 & 500D


Iron is an extremely common metal. In fact, it’s the fourth most abundant element on Earth. Humans have used iron for metalworking since ancient times. The Iron metal was so important that we named an entire archaeological era after it. Depending on the region it lasted approximately from 1200 BC—1 BC and signified a time when iron was the dominant toolmaking material.

Today, best steel  is still the most widely refined metal in the world, accounting for 90% of total metal production. We use it for building materials, machinery, tools, motor vehicles, shipbuilding, cookware, and steel. As important as iron has been to the technological advances of the human race and human development.

Fe meaning :
Fe 500 and Fe 500D are one of the best TMT bars available today. “Fe” stands for Iron out of which the TMT bars are made. The figure “500” implies the minimum yield stress in N/mm^2. The letter “D” in Fe 500D implies ductility which means that the steel bars have a higher percentage of elongation. The  lower quantities of carbon, sulphur and phosphorous, which will helps in preserving the steel and resisting earthquake shocks in future.

These types of best  tmt bars are produced under regulated manufacturing process and can be flexi and strong . Steel and concrete connection is one of the best combination.

Concrete has only high compressive power, and hence when it is combined with the TMT steel bars, together they become ductile and highly tensile. 

Top TMT bars can be used in a variety of projects like bridges, dams, flyovers, buildings, railways, etc.

The main advantages of using Fe 500D TMT steel bars are as follows:

  • Easy Bendability
  • Earthquake Resistance
  • Superior Welding Strength
  • Ductile and High Strength
