Hoa Phat’s PC Strand is made from a technology line imported entirely from Italy, meeting the US standards of ASTM (American Society for Testing and Materials) A416/A416M-17 [Standard Specification for Low-Relaxation, Seven-Wire Steel Strand for Prestressed Concrete].

The prestressed steel factory is located at Hoa Phat Iron and Steel Integrated Complex in the central province of Quang Ngai’s Dung Quat Economic Zone with a production capacity of nearly 300,000 tons per year, including more than 200,000 tons of prestressed steel bar (PC Bar) and over 80,000 tons of prestressed steel cable (PC Strand).
