Choosing a pre-threaded rod has many advantages. First, it eliminates the need to spend the time to custom thread materials. All-thread rod is ready for installation when it arrives. Further, it can be used with standard nuts and washers. Also, it’s easy to cut threaded rod with common cutting equipment.
This workhorse is highly versatile and used in a large range of applications and industries. Construction, automotive, and manufacturing are common uses for threaded rod. It fits great into tight spaces and can be cut, or even bent, to any size needed.
All-thread rod is also known by a number of other nickanmes. It is often called fully threaded rod or continuously threaded rod. Another nickname for this same product is redi-rod. When cut short, they are also called studs.
Threaded rod sizes vary with the diameter of the bar, the count of the threads, and the direction of the thread. So be sure to pick the product that you need to fit your specifications!
These have an especially high strength-to-weight ratio. Using aluminum threaded rod to secure other aluminum materials will help prevent galvanic corrosion.
Aluminum threaded rod readily accepts paint or anodizing. This makes it popular for decorative projects. Also, these resist corrosion resistance. They are popular for projects involving food and chemicals for this reason.
Additionally, if you need a non-magnetic material, aluminum is an economical choice compared with brass or copper.
Brass threaded rod is a great choice for ornamental projects that incorporate other brass parts. Also, brass is often used in electrical and industrial applications.
It is highly corrosion resistant and machinable. As a fastener, brass threaded rod offers a very strong component with no magnetism and high conductivity.
Threaded stainless steel rod is often found in marine environments as well as out-door construction where exposure to the elements and temperature shifts are a concern. They are durably and corrosion resistant, making them excellent for such applications.
Our stainless steel all thread rod is available in both 304 and 316 alloys.
In short, 316 stainless steel has notably higher corrosion resistance than 304. 316 stainless steel threaded rod can be used in harsh environments including marine environments, caustic environments, or even medical manufacturing.
Steel threaded rod is a cost-effective solution where both strength and malleability are needed. Our steel all thread rod is available in two finishes, plain and zinc-coated.
Plain 1008/1025 threaded rod is great for general purpose applications that do not require high strength. It is also advised that this material be used in drier environments where corrosion is less of a concern.
1008/1025 zinc coated rod is a cost-effective solution when a lower strength steel is needed. Specifically, zinc plating provides effective rust resistance at a low cost. 1008/1025 steel is a great general purpose material that doesn’t exhibit high strength.
