An All-India association of Thermex Licensees is being formed to propagate knowledge about
the use of Thermex 500 Grade (Fe 500 of IS 1786:1985), but with better ductility and elongation amongst all those involved
in RCC civil construction.
Information on the use of appropriate High Strength Deformed Bars in seismic zones is being
dissipated through architects and structural engineers.
On its part, H&K ensures that each Licensee is issued a THERMEX LICENCE,
but only after the mill begins to produce Thermex 500 Grade bar on a regular basis.
A copy of each such Licence issued is sent to HSE Germany.
H&K has the power to revoke the Licence of Thermex Licensees in case it is found that
the mill is producing and marketing bars that do not conform to Thermex standards.
We have received information from our collaborator, HSE Germany, about the type of bars accepted
for seismic zones by EU countries. This information is presented at each seminar.
