High tensile. high ductility, SEISMIC® 500E plain carbon steel, manufactured in coils to be further processed into high ductility reinforcing mesh. This reinforcing derives its superior strength and ductility by micro-alloying the steel with small vanadium additions.
Available as plain (not deformed) coils, this product is processed by specialist manufacturers into ductile reinforcement for concrete.
This steel also meets the demanding requirements of the seismic structural design methods employed in New Zealand as required by the reinforcing steel Standard AS/NZS 4671.
