What is TMT bar??

Thermomechanical processing

Thermomechanical processing, also known as thermo-mechanical treatment (TMT), is a metallurgical process that integrates work hardening and heat-treatment into a single process.

The quenching process produces a high strength bar from inexpensive low carbon steel. The process quenches the surface layer of the bar, which pressurizes and deforms the crystal structure of intermediate layers, and simultaneously begins to temper the quenched layers using the heat from the bar's core.

Steel billets 125mm² ("pencil ingots") are heated to approximately 1100°C in a reheat furnace. Then, they are progressively rolled to reduce the billets to the final size and shape of reinforcing bar. After the last rolling stand, the billet moves through a quench box. The quenching converts the billet's surface layer to martensite, and causes it to shrink. The shrinkage pressurizes the core, helping to form the correct crystal structures. The core remains hot, and austenitic. A microprocessor controls the water flow to the quench box, to manage the temperature difference through the cross-section of the bars. The correct temperature difference assures that all processes occur, and bars have the necessary mechanical properties.

The bar leaves the quench box with a temperature gradient through its cross section. As the bar cools, heat flows from the bar's centre to its surface so that the bar's heat and pressure correctly tempers an intermediate ring of martensite and bainite.

Finally, the slow cooling after quenching automatically tempers the austenitic core to ferrite and pearlite on the cooling bed.

These bars therefore exhibit a variation in microstructure in their cross section, having strong, tough, tempered martensite in the surface layer of the bar, an intermediate layer of martensite and bainite, and a refined, tough and ductile ferrite and pearlite core.

When the cut ends of TMT bars are etched in Nital (a mixture of nitric acid and methanol), three distinct rings appear: 1. A tempered outer ring of martensite, 2. A semi-tempered middle ring of martensite and bainite, and 3. a mild circular core of bainite, ferrite and pearlite. This is the desired micro structure for quality construction rebar.

In contrast, lower grades of rebar are twisted when cold, work hardening them to increase their strength. However, after thermo mechanical treatment (TMT), bars do not need more work hardening. As there is no twisting during TMT, no torsional stress occurs, and so torsional stress cannot form surface defects in TMT bars. Therefore TMT bars resist corrosion better than cold, twisted and deformed (CTD) bars.

Difference between TOR steel and TMT bars?

*TMT steel bar is a newer variety of steel for construction purpose. Earlier people have been using TOR Steel for concrete reinforcement.
Thermo Mechanically Treated bars (TMT bars) give you several advantages over the other types of steel:

Twisting operation is not involved in the production of the TMT steel bar,so no residual stresses involved in that , which in turn increases the corrosion resistance.

Rust and Corrosion Resistance :
The main reason for failure in any reinforcement concrete structure is due to corrosion of TOR Steel in the concrete, where this steel corrodes in existence of chloride ions. TMT Bars, due to its Thermo- mechanical treatment are very highly rust and corrosion resistant and is best suited in the humid and coastal states like West Bengal and Orissa.

TMT Bars are much superior to conventional TOR Steel by virtue of their various engineering properties and can be used for Residential Buildings, Bridges, Drums, Industrial Establishment and all types of concrete reinforcement purposes.

TMT Bars:
Grade - Fe 415
IS: 1786

The project designers use thermo mechanically treated bars (TMT) in place of torsteel and even in TMT, the choice is increasingly focussed on that with higher tensile strength ( Fe-500 in lieu of Fe-415) and high corrosion resistant TMT (HCRM) which is specially meant for use in coastal areas.
