Tata Steel Jamshedpur Plant gets BIS license

The nation of India’s first BIS licence for the production of structural weather resistant steel has been awarded to Tata Steel Jamshedpur Plant.

Corten steel, also known as weathering steel, is used in the construction of shipping containers and other heavy-duty weather-proof applications. It was developed specifically to eliminate the need for painting and to acquire a stable rust-like appearance over time.

The first all-India licence holders for this new steel grade, Tata Steel Jamshedpur Plant, are overjoyed because it will lessen India’s dependency on the importation of shipping containers made of Corten steel and help the country realize its vision of “AatmaNirbhar Bharat.”

The manufacture of corten steel creates new possibilities for domestic cargo transportation by utilizing India’s extensive network of inland waterways.
