Vietnamese steel maker Hoa Phat has signed a contract to export a lot of more than 2000 tonnes of prestressed steel cable to a US partner, delivered in March 2021. Hoa Phat is the first and only enterprise in Vietnam that can produce this specialty steel. The post-tensioned steel factory is located at Hoa Phat Dung Quat Iron and Steel Complex, proactive in input materials, and deep-water port for fast delivery. Hoa Phat's PC Strand has received great attention from domestic and foreign partners thanks to its stable quality and much more competition than imported products.
The Hoa Phat Prestressed Steel Plant has a scale of nearly 300,000 tonnes per year, including more than 200,000 tonnes of PC Bar and more than 80,000 tons of prestressed steel cable (PC Strand). In particular, the first phase of PC Strand has a capacity of about 40,000 tonnes per year. Production lines of production technology are completely imported from the prestigious Group of Italy. The product meets the American standards of ASTM A416 / A416M-17, ensuring mechanical properties, compressive tensile strength and other technical standards.
PC Strand has outstanding features such as: good corrosion resistance, less friction with unconnected ribs and easy to bend, using on-site precast concrete production, saving materials and exam time. PC Strand is commonly used in large-scale projects that require engineering, load capacity, high safety such as bridges, railways, highways, rock-ground anchoring projects, many industrial buildings, floors, stadiums
