New ChromX 2100 joins MMFX ChromX 9000 and 4000 Series reinforcing steel products, which include ChromX 9100, ChromX 9120, ChromX 4100 and ChromX rebar sold under the ASTM A1035 specification. The ChromX 9000 Series was recently rebranded from the popular MMFX2 concrete reinforcing steels.
ChromX 2100 has mechanical properties similar to high-strength ASTM A1035 reinforcing steels and is based on the innovative technology used to manufacture the high-strength and uncoated, corrosion-resistant ChromX 9000 and 4000 reinforcing steels. Through the modified chemistry of ChromX 2100, MMFX can offer reinforcing steel optimized to fulfill the needs of high-strength steel applications when high corrosion resistance is not required.
By specifying high-strength steels, designers can solve costly rebar congestion problems and developers can complete structures more quickly, resulting in substantial savings. Grade 100 ChromX 2100 high-strength rebar allows structures to be designed and built with up to 40 percent less steel. Additional cost reductions of up to 60 percent can be achieved through lower steel fabrication and placement costs, as well as other efficiencies in construction design.
The unique steel technology used in the manufacture of ChromX 2100 produces a high-strength steel with excellent ductility and tensile to yield ratio. These properties allow for the application of high strength steel efficiencies using the same standard industry handling and fabrication practices employed for conventional reinforcing steel, including the use of standard fabrication equipment.
Grade 100 ChromX 2100 steel is available in all industry standard sizes of reinforcing steel (rebar). It is sold in North and South America by MMFX Steel Corporation of America and in the Middle East by MMFX Steel DMCC.
