TATA SHAKTEE GC SHEET ADVANTAGES
TATA SHAKTEE GC SHEET   ORDINARY GC SHEET
RIGHT HARDNESS FOR ROOFING
 
Accurate tempering in TATA Shaktee GC Sheets resist cracks and fissures during drilling.   Uneven tempering causes ordinary sheets to crack during drilling.
HIGH TENSILE STRENGTH
 
High tensile strength (approx 700 mpa) of TATA Shaktee GC Sheets resist natural forces like hailstorms and other external forces.   Low tensile strength of ordinary sheets results in damage/rupture caused by hailstorms and other external forces.
EXCELLENT ZINC ADHERENCE
 
Superior technology and process control ensures proper surface cleaning before coating. This means a cleaner steel surface that results in excellent Zinc adherence.   Inferior technology and process control results in unclean steel surface leading to low adherence of Zinc coating. This causes the galvanised surface to peel off resulting in
reduced sheet life.
UNIFORM ZINC COATING
 
Uniform 120 gsm Zinc coating ensured by the sophisticated FEED FORWARD X-RAY COATING GAUGE results in even surface protection.   Non-uniform Zinc coating cause parts of galvanised surface with low Zinc coating to corrode faster. This reduces the sheet life drastically.
ASSURED THICKNESS AND ZINC COATING
 
Each sheet has its thickness and Zinc coating printed on it to ensure that the customers get what they have paid for.   Thickness of the sheet and the Zinc coating applied to it is not mentioned and even if it is, it is generally incorrect. As a result, customers are often cheated during purchase.
PERFECT OVERLAPPING
 
Even corrugations ensure perfect overlapping which results in improved weather-proofing. Moreover, there is no unwanted retention of particles and moisture between the overlapped joints. This prevents corrosion originating from overlappings.   Uneven corrugations and edge waviness lead to gaps in overlapping, resulting in a badly fabricated roof. Unwanted particles and moisture stuck between the sheet overlappings results in corrosion starting from the joint.
ADEQUATE CHROMATING
 
Usage of the best and adequate chromate solution at the galvanising stage prevents formation of white rust on the sheets. As a result, sheet life is enhanced.   In case of ordinary GC sheets, inadequate chromating on the galvanised surface results in formation of white rust on the sheets that reduces sheet life.
ACCURATE DIMENSION
 
The length of the sheet is equal to the standard specified length, giving you true value for your money.   Ordinary sheets,quite often, are of lower length than the standard length specified. As a result you get lesser value for your money.
ASSURED THICKNESS
 
TATA Shaktee GC sheets come with assured thickness. The tolerance maintained is more stringent than the standards defined by Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS).   In ordinary GC sheets, the thickness is not printed and even if it is, the actual thickness is usually lower than the thickness claimed.
SUPERIOR PACKAGING
 
TATA Shaktee GC sheets are packaged with Blue Woven HDPE (450 microns) and LDPE (250 microns) plastics alongwith edge protectors, tamper proof seals and metal jackets on the top that protects sheet quality, especially during transit.   Ordinary sheets are packaged with poor quality plastics with a metal jacket on top that is susceptible to damage during transit.
STABLE AND TRANSPARENT PRICING
 
The Recommended Consumer Price of TATA Shaktee GC Sheets ensures the required transparency and stability in prices across the states.   Pricing of ordinary GC sheets is opportunistic and unfair, which means that prices are unstable and non-transparent, thereby subject to change even on a weekly basis.
SUPERIOR DISTRIBUTION NETWORK
 
A superior distribution network comprising 3500 dealers and 28 distributors spread across the country ensures excellent reach and regular supply of TATA Shaktee GC Sheets, as and when required.   Nonexistence of authorised dealer network leads to irregular supply and even sales of substandard products.
