Deformed bars are useful for construction companies in the Philippines and all over the world. It is a common steel bar and is often used as a tensioning device in reinforced concrete. It is also used to reinforce structures by holding the concrete in compression. A deformed bar is usually formed from carbon steel and is given ridges for better mechanical anchoring to reinforce concrete.
It is undoubtedly a very useful item, as are other steel products. But where did it all begin?
The years 1870-1914 are considered as the period of the Second Industrial Revolution by historians. The First Industrial Revolution may have caused the growth of industries like coal, iron, railroad and textiles; the Second Industrial Revolution witnessed the bloom of electricity, petroleum and steel.
The changes that occurred during this period had to do with new products replacing old ones. For instance, steel began to replace iron. Because steel was far more durable than iron, people began to utilize it for construction projects, industrial machines, railroads, ships and many other items. Steel production also made it possible for railroads to be built at competitive costs, which further spread transportation and made it more reliable.
The modern steel industry began during the mid-19th century and steel production was mostly centered in Britain, supplying the European and American market. Steel used to be so costly – so much so that it was only used to make tools and swords. That was until Henry Bessemer, an English inventor, devised a way in the 1860s to make steel production cheaper. The method was called the ‘Bessemer process’ and from then on, steel became used all over the world for construction and other applications because of its versatility, high tensile strength and low cost. Its internal structure can be changed depending on how it is going to be used like making something as small as a razor blade to something big like the large beams used for bridges and buildings.
Because steel has become a major influence in our lives, it’s no wonder many companies began to join the steel industry. And in the Philippines, TKL Steel is the best company that provides high quality products and services in construction and hardware.
