Kochi, May 1: SRMB Udyog Limited, the first TMT bar manufacturer in secondary steel sector of the country, has launched its corrosion-proof steel ''SRMB Azar'' into the Kerala market.
'' The company is expanding its reach to different parts of the country through a steady expansion mode fuelled by brand new product portfolio, which includes the revolutionary corrosion-proof steel,'' said Company Director Ashish Beriwala at a press meet here last evening.
The new product was a result of continuous research and produced in collaboration with Zinga Metall, Belgium, he said.
The product, already launched in Tripura and Rajasthan, was produced by film galvanising with 'zinga' on SRMB TMT bars to prolong the lifetime of the concrete to more than 125 years.
'' The corrosion rate was higher in Kerala, being a coastal area and the new product would augur well for the construction industry in the state,'' he noted.
He said the demand for steel was increasing as the construction industry was booming.
