600 EQR is made from C-20 billets, which enhances the intrinsic quality of the bar to
withstand load under adverse conditions
Captain 600 EQR can resist upto 600 degree Celsius
Yes, we provide the test report with the consignment
600 EQR is made from C-20 billets, which enhances the intrinsic quality of the bar to withstand load under adverse conditions.
The scientific rib design of Captain 600 EQR provides better gripping for better bonding with concrete.
Captain 600 EQR can resist upto 600 degree Celsius.
Due to low carbon content content, bars can be butt or lap welded using ordinary rutile
coated electrodes without pre or post heat treatment.
Rust Guard TMT bar is called a green revolution in steel and Captain Steel India Ltd
manufactured it first in Eastern India.
It is called Rust Guard as this TMT bar provides complete protection from Rust and corrosion due to
the epoxy coating on the bar.
Epoxy coatings cure, whereas paint dries. In addition, when 100 percent solid epoxy
coatings are used, the surface becomes hard and durable, making it highly resistant to
things like chemicals, abrasions, impact, oil and grease, and stains.
No the green colour is not hand painted. It is a fusion bonded epoxy coating on the TMT bar, done
by high end machines. Fusion bonded epoxy is basically 100% solid ground fused powder particles
which when heated melt to form a continuous film, the metaloplast membrane. This membrane
being non-penetrative protects the steel from attack of oxygen and water molecules and provides
protection from rust and corrosion.
The rib design of Rust Guard TMT bar ensure strong grip with concrete in RCC under fusion bonding
conditions. So Rust guard doesn’t slip with concrete, rather has a very strong grip with concrete.
Yes Rust Guard TMT bars can be welded. After welding, patch up coating must be applied on the cut
area. Patch up coating is provided complimentary by Captain Steel on every purchase.
Yes Rust Guard TMT bars are flexible and can be bended.
Rust Guard TMT bars conforms with BIS IS 13620 : 1993 specifications
No, please use cutting machine or hacksaw blade to cut Rust Guard TMT bars.
Please use mandrel for bending Rust Guard TMT bars.
Rust guard TMT bars are manufactured by the following steps:
a. Surface preparation by shot blasting process
b. Heating of rebars (upto 240 degree Celsius) by Induction heating
c. Epoxy coating on rebars
d. Quenching on rebars
e. Testing of the product
