Tata Steel, a $22B steel manufacturer with primary operations in India, is looking to address oxidation of construction rebar during storage.
The organization is looking to implement a solution which can provide a uniform coating to protect rebar and slow the rusting process by 5 to 6 months (by which time the rebar is expected to be consumed in the concrete structure). Will prefer a solution which can be built in the high-temperature manufacturing process itself (and not offline) and cater to a mass production environment of about 3 million tons per year.
The Tata Innoventures group is looking to move fast, meetings in Late August/Early September.
