Stainless threaded rods are a highly popular industrial fastener for a variety of reasons. For those of you not familiar with threaded rods, they’re a relatively long metal rod with threading on both ends; in many cases, the threading extends the entire length of the rod. Stainless threaded rods are designed to be used as a fastener under tension for a wide range of applications.
While threaded rods are available in various materials, lengths, and diameters, the most popular material is 300 or 400 series stainless steel. Because of their functionality, versatility, and brilliant finish, stainless threaded rods are the threaded fastener of choice for many manufacturers and contractors.
