Chemical Analysis
Scrap Melt Shop is equipped with modernized Wet Lab facilities and most modern type Spectrometer through which strict quality control measures are practiced to achieve the specified product quality standards. A.S. Steel is also equipped with spectrometer to test the chemical properties of steel at different stages of manufacturing.The different chemical composition.

Quality Testing
Tensile Properties
A.S. Steel Mills is equipped with a industry standard quality lab that is capable of testing both the mechanical and chemical properties of rebars at regular intervals.At A.S. Steel Mills, samples are taken every 15 minutes for checking cross section, visual defects and sectional weight.Samples are also taken for every 30 tons (40 minutes) for testing the mechanical properties like Yield Strength, Tensile strength, Elongation and Bend / Re-bend test.Tensile Properties of A.S. Steel rebars as per ASTM standards are listed below:

As per ASTM A-615 Gr.60:
Y.S. = 420N/mm2 (min)
T.S. = 620N/mm2 (min)
% Elongation = 9 (8-20mm)
% Elongation = 8 (25mm)
% Elongation = 7 (32mm)
Bend 16mm= 2(d)
Bend >16mm25mm = 5()
Bend >32mm = 7(d)
