Topic: Steel Type

Hi

I am constructing a new house with basement, ground, first, second  floor and option for 3rd floor in future.

I am exploring different steel brands for RCC structure, foundation etc. Are brands like Kamdhenu, Rathi local brands?

Shall I go for more global brand like Tata Steel, SAIL etc or Kamdhenu/Rathi will be ok for same steel specifications.

Regards,

Sumit

Hello,
Its difficult to categories the product by their brand, as everyone's product is chemically the same (atleast in paper).

But when it comes quality product, no one can beat TATA in this segment. Its the only company to provide Fe500 in place of Fe415 and that too at the same price. TATA is the only company which sell its product in Meter measurement and not in Kg. Hence its wise for him to stick to its diameter.

Ideal weight of Steel 
8 mm : 0.40 Kg/m
10 mm  : 0.60 Kg/m
12 mm :  0.90 Kg/m
16 mm : 1.6 Kg/m

If you choose TATA, you get satisfactory quality but price is more than others.

SAIL is equally good.

Thanks.
Subhakankhi.

Post subject: Tata is very expensive

Tata is very expensive. I do not think that the quality of tata is better than other local brands. They are equally good as reputed and topmost brands in steel. Although the big DLF  buildings in Gurgaon are  built using kaamdhenu and rathi.

Steel strength should be enough according to the load bearing capacity of the building. And kamdhenu and rathi are equally good.

There are different views/opinions here. I am confused a bit on this. Although it's personal choice but I want to make some informed decision.

Can you please let me know the price difference between Tata Steel and Kamdhenu/Rathi steel. I want to find out whether it's worth to pay a little extra for Tata Steel?

How much will I have to pay more for Tata steel.

Regards,

Sumit

Dear Dua

You should purchase MS Steel from any reputed firm, differance of rate have no meaning for such a big purchase. The rates of steel are varies daily, so it is of no use to now the price of today or tomorrow.

Every firm give steel on weight basises, no firm give you steel on measurement basises.

For your quarries and to know about MS Steel bars you should go to website gharexpert.com where in raw material section see steel sub section where you find lot of information about steel bars. For weight relation with length see the link below.http://www.gharexpert.com/articles/Steel-2024/How-to-ensure-weight-steel-members-_0.aspx

Hello,

RINL, visakhapatnam is the best steel industry for making wire rods of 8mm,10mm,12mm 16mm,20mm etc. Quality wise u always choose any branded steel only like visakhapatnam steel or tata steel. do not go for local steel because they are not mainted uniformity in dia and thier chemical composition also differes from bulk to bulk.

Post subject: Grade of Steel

It is important to choose right grade of Thermo Mechanically Treated Bars (TMT Bars) that comes with right elongation property.

Fe 500D TMT Rebars are the best to go for since it comes with the perfect combination of strength and flexibility and helps to build your home strong.

For more information on TMT Bar or any other construction related queries you may take expert advice to resolve your query.
