Scratch on Rebar

Scratch on Rebar

Scratch on Rebar

(OP)
Hi everybody;
We are producing reinforcing steel bars. We have some scratch on rebar rib. we saw scratches on 3 or 4 ribs on one 12 meter rebar. Billet does not have any defect like crack. Can you explain reason of this cracks on ribs? Thanks in advance

Pictures?

These are bars.

I beleive that somehow, billet surface is tearing in preparation pass and these teared surface goes another pass. at the end we saw this teared surface on rebar. Because when we saw these cracks on rib and also on core, we changed preparation passes. After that % 90 of problem is solved. At least, we did not see any crack on core. Now, we saw these cracks on steel before becoming rebar.

RE: Scratch on Rebar

The raw material may come with incipient flaws that only manifested under extreme working, or it may be in a more hardened condition where it has less ductility than expected.
At the other extreme, the tooling is at fault. Running a different heat of material would answer this.
Sounds as though you are on the way to solving it though.

dear ironic metallurgist
can you explain it in more detail?

RE: Scratch on Rebar

If you are using european designations, is this DE 500 BS, BE 500 TS or BE 500 S ?
If not, can you tell the production steps?

it is st37 steel. C 0,18-0,22 , Si 0,15-0,18 , Mn 0,55 - 0,60

RE: Scratch on Rebar

Most like originated with the original stock from which the rebar was subsequently rolled. Most likely appeared as a seam on the surface of the raw stock and still appears to be a seam on the finished rebar.

it is related to billet or rolling process?

RE: Scratch on Rebar

we face same defect
any suggestion?

RE: Scratch on Rebar

The rebar has been very heavily etched or pickled to bring out these stringers which are not unusual in ordinary , relatively dirty steel. Normally this degree of etching would be done to evaluate steel cleanliness , not routine pickling to remove scale.

Hi
If you can explain pleaze

RE: Scratch on Rebar

When you macroetch you are probably going to find inclusions and stringers. Then you need to decide if they meet specification, if there is one, or decide if they are acceptable for service. T

RE: Scratch on Rebar

Thank you

RE: Scratch on Rebar

sure a lot parent material defects, section and review. see if it has internal defects as well. hopefully not

RE: Scratch on Rebar

I would make 2 micros from one of the bars, one longitudinal and one transverse, and look at them in as-polished as well as etched conditions to see if there are internal (as opposed to surface) cracks, whether they are consistent with seams in the original billet, and what kind of microcleanliness this rebar really has.

RE: Scratch on Rebar

Railroad rails are often rerolled into concrete reinforcing bars. The track head is separated from the "tee" and is used for rerolling. Any notches, oxides, etc. would be present in the reinforcing bar. I wouldn't be surprised if there wasn't a You-Tube video showing the process.

Best regards - Al

RE: Scratch on Rebar

In Europe, the %C for rebar is limited to (somewhere around) .43%, whereas railroad track is pearlitic (.6-.7 %C). Must be an american thing then?

RE: Scratch on Rebar

Hello

Who still folowing the issure of crack on rebar?
Anyone??
