SS TIGER 400/60’s exclusive method of manufacturing creates a combination of strength and ductility that exceeds the minimum limit specified in the standard BDS. In the yield strength for SS TIGER 500W, though the standard specifies a minimum of 500 N/mm2, designers use this value for design; the typical values are around 550 N/mm2. For the same product, the typical value of ductility as measured by elongation is near by 16% minimum as against the standard value of 14% minimum. Undoubtedly, TS/YS ratio and percentage of elongation are important properties in a re-bar that reflects the ability to handle the pressure of earthquakes. Higher this values, the better.
N.B.: Elongation at maximum force 8%.
