- TMT steel bars are supplied in U bent or straight rods.
- Standard length of TMT steel bar (any size) is 12 meter or 40 feet.
- As per IS 1786:2008 the tolerance of TMT steel bars should adhere as per IS guideline.
- TMT steel bars are manufactured in different diameters: 8 mm, 10 mm, 12 mm, 16 mm, 20 mm, 25 mm, 28 mm, 32 mm.
- Weight of TMT steel bars can be explained in Kilogram or Quintal or Ton, where

1 Quintal = 100 kg ‖ 1 Ton = 1000 kg
