"iSTEEL Zinc, Next-Gen Galvanized XLS TMT Bars launched

Viki Industries, which markets iSTEEL, a brand synonymous with premium TMT bars across South India, has launched iSTEEL Zinc, a groundbreaking zinc-coated TMT bar offering up to three times higher life for constructions than traditional TMT bars. 

The launch event witnessed the addresses of experts from the industry, including Mr. L. Pugazhendhi, Executive Director of India Lead Zinc Development Association, New Delhi; Dr. T. Venugopal, Former Chief Technology Officer of TATA Steel; and Dr. A.R Santhakumar, Former Emeritus Professor at IIT Madras, and Mr. T. V Subramaniam, Head of Quality Control, iSTEEL. 

Speaking at the launch function, Mr. G. Gautam Reddy, CEO of Viki Industries, said, ‘’The new product is set to redefine the standards of construction materials and transform the landscape of construction in the country. Buildings constructed with iSTEEL Zinc, galvanized XLS TMT bars can expect a lifespan of up to 150 years, compared to 50 years with regular TMT bars. 

Essential for construction in coastal areas and diverse applications such as foundations, industries, and water tanks, iSTEEL Zinc, galvanised XLS TMT bars offer unmatched durability and resilience. It is to be noted that galvanised steel has stood the test of time. Iconic structures like the Burj Khalifa in Dubai, Brooklyn Bridge in New York, and  Lotus Temple in New Delhi stand as a testament to its enduring reliability.
