SAIL has rolled out a new brand of TMT bars— SAIL SeQR (pronounced as SAIL secure), which is safer and comes with unique features like higher strength with better ductility to provide enhanced safety to the construction.

 
The production of these TMT bars began in the modern mill of SAIL’s IISCO Steel plant on May 1 and the first consignment was flagged off on May 6, 2019.
 
SAIL Chairman Shri Anil Kumar Chaudhary said that, “SAIL is committed to make products, which are best in class and superior in quality so that our customers get the best value. The company’s concern for safety in any construction is paramount and SAIL SeQR, our new brand of TMT, has the superior properties of higher strength and improved ductility, offering assurance. These improved characteristics are top class in the market making it a preferred choice for the users.”
 
SAIL SeQR TMT bars possess unique combination of higher strength with better ductility that surpass the minimum specified level mentioned for this class by Bureau of Indian Standards. Characterised by the best UTS/YS (ultimate tensile strength / yield strength) ratio of 1.18 in this class, these bars can absorb more energy when stressed beyond yielding point without any catastrophic failures due to sudden occurrences such as earthquake/tsunami.
 
Produced through advanced manufacturing process, this combination is achieved through automated and sophisticated cooling and following stringent process control. The highly clean steel for these TMT bars are made by adopting primary steel making route with secondary refining process resulting in lower levels of sulphur and phosphorous as well as gaseous content. It brings in marked improvement in the quality of the TMT bars. SAIL SeQR TMT bars, having prominent and uniform rib pattern, provides stronger bond with concrete. Moreover, this has superior bendability allowing easier bending with less effort. SAIL SeQR bars will also be available in corrosion-resistant variety under the name SAIL SeQR-CR.
