Company Profile- Jindal Steel & Power Ltd.


Raising the rebar

Counted among India’s major steel producers Jindal Steel and Power Limited (JSPL) has a significant presence in sectors like mining, power generation and infrastructure. For the first time in its history the company has forayed into retail with the launch of Jindal Panther™ TMT rebars.

These rebars are technically advanced, thermo-mechanically treated, and are therefore different from the rest owing to the world’s most advanced MORGAN MILL using SIEMENS HYQST technology. 

Production units: Jindal Steel & Power operates a 1.0 MTPA capacity TMT Rebar mill at Patratu, Jharkhand supplied by Siemens of USA, which is the world leader in rebar production technology.

This mill produces high strength rebars conforming to IS 1786:2008 Fe 500D, Fe 550D & 600 grade in normal, EQR and CRS quality and in size ranging from 6-50 mm.


Some of the unique product features are:

Excellent Bonding with Cement

Jindal Panther™ TMT rebars have precise, uniform and parallel rib pattern engraved through computer controlled notch making machines, resulting in excellent bond strength with concrete. Parallel ribs on Jindal Panther™ TMT rebars are produced by a high-speed finishing block called NTM (No Twist Mill) which is an ultra heavy-duty block using tungsten carbide rings that impart close dimensional tolerance superior surface finish.


Superior Weldability

Low levels of carbon ensure easier and faster welding without preheating. This means stronger and safer weld joints and reduction in wastage during welding at site.


Earthquake Resistant Properties

Jindal Panther™ TMT rebars have been proven to have higher resistance to cyclic loading conditions and are recommended in the earthquake prone areas due to their superior seismic resistant properties. Jindal Panther™ TMT rebars meet international specifications for the UTS/YS ratio thereby providing them with high strength and high ductility. High UTS/YS ratio and more percentage elongation signify that the steel is capable to strain harder, in event of an earthquake.


Excellent Bendability

Due to the highly controlled process that ensures a microstructure with a soft (ferrite and pearlite) core, Jindal Panther™ TMT rebarshave excellent bendability (in spite of their high strength) facilitating easy bending, making work easier and faster at the construction sites.


Corrosion Resistant

Steel in concrete is usually in a non-corroding, passive condition. However, when corrosive elements like chloride from the sea water, soil salinity or carbon, nitrogen oxide from atmospheric pollution enters concrete, they disrupt the passive layer protecting the steel, causing rust and leading to a loss of bond between the steel and the concrete. The parallel rib pattern in Jindal Panther™ TMT rebars created in the final finishing stand eliminates the chance of torsion residual stress. This coupled with low carbon content leads to superior corrosion resistant properties as compared to the ordinary rebars.


Greater Resistance to Fire

The quenching and the self-tempering treatment at a temperature of approximately 650°C results in a consistent and thick layer of tempered martensitic-rim on the outer surface of the rebar imparting higher capacity to retain strength at elevated temperatures.


Ravi Uppal, MD & Group CEO, Jindal Steel & Power Limited says “Home is the most cherished investment made by an individual. Our entry into retail is spurred with an aim to provide top quality reinforced bars to housing segment. Jindal Panther™ TMT rebars are inspired by the strength and agility of the powerful black feline and promises to empower every Indian home by offering strength and purity to its construction. Our brand values are rooted in excellence, innovation and commitment to world class quality as envisioned by our founder. With these guiding principles, we aspire to serve the emerging needs of India.”
