It comprises threads that run along the entire length of the Threaded Rod. They are immensely useful as fasteners when in applications involving tapped holes and threaded nuts of component assemblies. They are easy to cut into different sizes, and provide mechanical stability.
Depending on the industry and type of application, threaded rods have to be carefully selected according to the thread, its size, and the manufacturer.
Before Starting the Search: There are a few aspects that need to be kept in mind before one begins to find the right type of rods for an industrial application.
Choose the Right Type of Thread: Generally, there are two types of threads that are used when constructing the rods - regular grade nylon threads and NCP nylon threads. Regular nylon threads are known as Color Preserver or CP threads. The reason for this is that regular threads require the use of a color preserver to prevent it from absorbing paint or epoxy. Most rod manufacturers prefer to use No Color Preserver or NCP threaded rods, as they are designed to provide resistance against color absorption. Whether a builder decides to use CP or NCP threaded rods depends on his need and application.
Easy to install;
