GRADE 40

GRADE 40

Nomee Steel introduced high-quality Grade 40 rebar which will ensure the strength of the structure thus mitigating risks of damages due to natural calamities or any other factors. Projects from the past that could not acquire the required strength or the cost of construction value with conventional steel are achievable now.

WHAT IS A GRADE 40 STEEL BAR?

Grade 40 is a high reinforcement steel bar used in high-rise buildings, bridges, dams, and mega projects. Grade 40 steel bars are more efficient steel bars that will bring a revolutionary change to Pakistan’s construction industry

Grade 40 steel has been recently incorporated in the ACI code. The design guidelines are taken from the same code by structural engineers. The code is revised in terms of the latest construction technologies. One of the reasons to introduce Grade 40 steel in ACI 318 is to limit the congestion of the reinforcement in the high-rise buildings and to provide an economy to the overall project.

SALIENT FEATURES OF REBAR

  • High strength
  • Better formability
  • Corrosion-resistant
  • Durability
  • Seismic resilience
  • High-performance reinforcement
  • Economical

WHY GRADE 40 ?

With a new trend of high-rise buildings, the mega projects arising out of the need for infrastructure development, the one belt one road imitative of CPEC, and the construction package all gave the construction industry a whole new direction. Due to the influx of these mega construction projects, the demand for construction material has increased significantly.
One of the major elements in construction is steel, it comprehends 40% of a project’s total cost. Pakistan imports its steel scrap and the increasing demand for steel and soaring high prices of steel scrap are creating a negative balance on the foreign deficit. Realizing, this gap, the research & development wing at FF steel came up with a solution for both needs of the time.
The strength to go up vertically and the economy for using less amount of steel was found in Grade 40 steel bars. With a yield strength of 40,000 PSI and ultimate strength of 100,000 PSI, FF Grade 40 steel is 33% stronger than the Grade 60 steel bars.
