Hennigsdorfer Stahl Engineering GmbH (HSE) Germany developed, after years of research and field trials, a unique Quenching and Self-tempering (QST) process that allowed rolling mills to produce high strength deformed bars which fully met the demands of civil engineers of different countries, at a lower cost (without the use of costly alloys). This basic process and subsequent improvements were patented worldwide. THERMEX is the registered trademark of HSE Germany who has allowed H&K India to own it in the Indian Region. STEELMAX TMX uses the QST rebar technology and therefore owns TMX (THERMEX) license to use the mark on the product. Each Thermex System is specifically designed to suit individual mill parameters and the rebar properties desired by the client. Thermex Systems can be offered to meet any of the main and popular international specifications besides any special requirements.
THERMEX/TMX steel rebars- All rebars that are produced through the Thermex system of HSE, Germany are called THERMEX rebars. TMX is an acronym for THERMEX. THERMEX is the brand name referring to the Quenching & Self-tempering process. It is a Licensed Technology & System obtained by more than 300 mills in India and overseas.
