M12 12 1.75
M16 16 2

What is the strongest grade threaded rod?

Threaded rods featuring a white color code are the strongest. The second-strongest color code is red, which is made of A4 stainless steel. The third-strongest color code for threaded fasteners is green, which is made of A2 stainless steel. Coming in fourth and five is yellow and unmarked, respectively.

Is zinc plated and galvanized the same?

Galvanisation is when a protective zinc coating is applied to steel or iron, to prevent rusting. This is when metal parts are fully submerged in a bath of molten zinc. Zinc plating (also known as electro-galvanising) is a process where zinc is applied by using a current of electricity.

Where is threaded rod used?

Threaded rods have many applications, effectively working as a pin to fasten or connect two materials together. Also used to stabilise structures, they can be inserted into various materials like concrete, wood or metal to either temporarily create a steady base during construction or they can be installed permanently.

What is Grade 2 threaded rod?

The most common steel threaded rod, classified as ASTM A307, is Grade 2 threaded rod made from low carbon steel. The stronger and more heat resistant Grade 5 threaded rod is made of medium carbon steel quenched and tempered. It is classified as ASTM A449.

What is Grade 55 all thread?

The reference to “Grade 55” is for getting a stainless steel all thread rod with a minimum yield strength of 55,000 psi. There are currently no stainless steel specifications commonly stocked that will guarantee a 55,000 psi yield strength.

How much weight can 12mm threaded rod hold?

Proof load capacities of metric threaded steel rods

Nominal Size Pitch (mm) Minimum Proof Load (kN) 1)
Property Class
M8 1.25 30.4
M10 1.5 48.1
M12 1.75 70.0

Can I use threaded rod instead of bolts?

The reason that many fastener distributors and manufacturers with limited capabilities encourage the substitution of a rod with nut in lieu of a headed bolt is because they simply do not have the capability to forge heads onto bolts.

Is all thread carbon steel?

Now back to your original question, but not the answer you were looking for: All thread that you can get at a big box store or a hardware store is not a high carbon steel (btw, all steel is “carbon steel”. The carbon is what makes it steel.). There are high carbon steel all threads but you would have to get them from a specialty supplier.

How threaded rod is made?

Manufacturing. All thread rod is manufactured in 3 ways: mass-produced, cut-to-length, and cut thread. Common grades and diameters are mass produced and available across the country. Cut-to-length all thread rod uses mass-produced rods which are then cut to the finished length with the ends chamfered.

What is a thread rod?

Threaded Rod is a type of connecting rod that has threads facing the same direction. It is used for anything you can’t use a standard length bolt for. Threaded rod is a multi-purposed product used in construction, plumbing, electrical, industrialized work, and residential settings.
