Stainless steel fully threaded rod for general use in harsh atmospheric conditions and some corrosive environments. Stainless steel has higher corrosion resistance than carbon steel. Stainless steel all thread rod is commonly used in applications that require general atmospheric corrosion resistance, such as chemical and food processing equipment. Some chemical environments may require special corrosion resistant materials and precautions.
Threaded rod is a widely used and versatile product used in all industries, from industrial, chemical, electrical, construction, agricultural, maintenance, and even in home use. Using threaded rod eliminates the need for raw material, threading equipment, dies, and time. Threaded rod is produced with threads rolled under high pressure to give greater strength. Threaded rods can be used with standard nuts and washers.
Stainless steel threaded rod, used with stainless steel nuts is being used all over – in construction, plumbing, electrical work, general repairs and in normal household applications. They have even been seen in modern art design (think Steampunk) and decor – from toilet roll holders to balustrades, coat hooks to towel rails. Their more traditional uses see them being used as anchor bolts, clamps, hanger and U-bolts.
Threaded rod can be cut with a metal cutting hack saw or a power band saw. With clean saw cuts, the nut will move easily over the threads. With a rough saw cut, minimal deburring is required to clean the sawn end. Threaded rod is supplied in standard 36" lengths, but inquire on special lengths and grades as threaded rod is readily available.
There are times when you need a solution for a project you’re working on and the DIY gods seem to conspire against you. Your local hardware store doesn’t stock the bolt you need; the other shop down the road has bolts, but in the wrong diameter; the next place does have the right bolts in the right diameter, but they’re just out of stock...This is when stainless steel threaded rod comes to the rescue. Readily available in different diameters and lengths, you can make your own bolts simply by sawing to the correct length, putting coupling nuts or fasteners on each end and VOILA, your custom length bolt is ready.
