Mega TMT are manufactured by advanced Turboquench process, which results in a tough outer surface with a soft core. This in turn provides good bendability. While most bars are produced by cold twisting. Mega Turbo TMT bars are produced through thermo-mechanical treatment.This result is superior corrosion-resistance characteristics compared to traditional cold twisting bars because there are no residual tensional stresses in the bar.
In a series of test, concrete beam column joints, reinforced with Mega Turbo TMT bar, were subjected to repeated reverse loading with inelastic strains. These simulation tests were conducted to evaluate their performance during an earthquake. The result showed a uniformly maintained ductility till failure due to uniform entry dissipation during each cycle.
