Mr. Rahul Sharma, the Director of International Zinc Association India, gave a detailed session on the future of reinforcement TMT bars to create awareness among the nation builders.
Mr. Rahul Sharma said “Steel is the most important metal needed for Infrastructure development. Infrastructure development being a costly affair should always be built with materials and design that have long lasting life. Thus, it is important that we have galvanized steel to protect against corrosion for longevity and safety of the structures. Maintenance repairs create additional problems and disrupt daily activities for weeks – sometime for years – on end. The global cost of corrosion is a staggering $2.5 trillion annually as per NACE, translating to about 3-4 per cent of the global GDP and almost 4 per cent in India. A long-term answer to this far-reaching problem is use of zinc protected steel during the structure’s initial construction stages, i.e. Galvanizing”
Mr. Shashwat Pachisia, the Chief Marketing Officer of ESL said “The purpose of this session was to increase awareness about the usage of “ZINC COATED TMT BARS” amongst the infrastructure decision makers to build long lasting infrastructure to serve many generations.”
Vedanta embraces state of the art technology channelizing next phase of growth achieved through new technology and innovation- which also the one of the core pillar of the company. Aligning with this thought, ESL highlighted the future of the Reinforcement TMT bars. This innovation of TMT bars will enhance the life of the structure and provide more value compared to the cost of the product.
