SEL Tiger TMT Insights: What is the role of TMT Bars in Natural Disasters?

Fire resistant TMT bar

When disaster comes it doesn’t come with warning, and it can be cathartic if actionable measures are not taken before it happens. While high-rise construction has been part of any urban landscape, it has created an impending fear when disaster strikes it can cause loss of life and property. TMT bars are corrosion-resistant, earthquake-resistant, heat-resistant, weather-resistant, and highly flexible which makes it the primary material for all construction purposes. TMT bars hold the structure together and thus, buy TMT bars that can withstand the impact of natural disasters. 

How do TMT bars add a layer of Safety During Natural Disasters?


Fires may be natural or man-made, depending on what originally caused the disaster. In case of fire, the damage to the building can be severe. Therefore, when choosing TMT bars, fire safety should be among the top priorities. The fire-resistant properties of TMT bars have made them a sought-after construction material. Our SEL TMT Bars are resistant up to 600°C to 650°C.


Poor quality TMT bars rust or corrode if they are exposed to oxygen and moisture. The corroded bars do not show much adhesiveness to the concrete and compromise the structural integrity of the building. With the combination of a proper quenching system and steel, our SEL Tiger TMT Bars can withstand the impacts of harsh external weather such as rain, groundwater salinity or acidic substances. Ordinary TMT bars do not have these properties to withstand such conditions.

Storms and cyclones

Many cities in India are now frequently experiencing storms and cyclones. Strong winds can damage the buildings. Good quality TMT bars provide the building with structural stability, allowing it to withstand storms and cyclones. Produced and curated through automated machines, our SEL Tiger TMT bars are known for their solid grip on RCC. Ordinary bars with smooth bodies lose their grip on cyclones or earthquakes. This isn’t the case with Our SEL Tiger TMT bars that have ribbed patterns.


TMT bars are known for offering strength and structural stability to buildings. Good-quality TMT bars are known for earthquake-resistant properties. Government regulations have made it compulsory to use TMT bars for important construction projects in earthquake-prone areas. Our SEL Tiger TMT bars are flexible and have high bendability. This helps the building to deal with the sideway movement and withstand the effects of earthquakes.

Frequently Asked Questions

1. How do TMT bars withstand Natural Disasters?

TMT bars have high fatigue confrontation, high yield strength, elongation properties and high ductility this makes the TMT absorb dynamic stress. SEL Tiger manufactures TMT bars after quenching, heat tempering, and through the Thermex process that adds features like flexibility, corrosion- resistance and heat resistance, allowing it to stand tall in any natural disaster. 

 2. Can Fe 500 TMT bars also provide sufficient strength during natural disasters, or is Fe 550D always necessary?

Fe 500 TMT bars offer reliable strength for general construction. However, Fe 550D is recommended for areas prone to seismic activity due to its higher yield strength and enhanced ductility, providing an extra layer of protection during natural disasters.
