Stainless Steel Rods & Studs
Stainless steel threaded rods and studs are versatile fasteners designed for a wide range of applications that require secure and reliable connections. Available in both inch and metric sizes, they come in diameters ranging from #6 up to 1-1/2" for inch sizes and M5 up to M36 for metric sizes. The two most commonly used stainless steel grades for threaded rods and studs are 304 and 316.
Grade 304 stainless steel offers excellent corrosion resistance, making it suitable for general-purpose applications. It can withstand exposure to moisture, chemicals, and atmospheric conditions without rusting or deteriorating. This grade is often used in construction, plumbing, and various industrial settings where moderate corrosion resistance is required.
Grade 316 stainless steel provides superior corrosion resistance, especially in environments where exposure to saltwater or corrosive chemicals is prevalent. This grade is highly resistant to pitting, crevice corrosion, and chloride-induced stress corrosion cracking, making it ideal for marine applications, coastal areas, and environments with high chloride content.
Stainless steel threaded rods and studs are threaded along their entire length, allowing them to securely connect two or more components by screwing into corresponding nuts or tapped holes. Their threaded design enables easy installation, adjustment, and disassembly when needed. These fasteners are widely used in construction, manufacturing, maintenance, and repair applications, providing reliable and durable connections in various industries.
By offering a range of sizes and grades, stainless steel threaded rods and studs provide flexibility to accommodate diverse project requirements. Whether you need a small diameter inch-sized rod for a household project or a larger metric-sized stud for an industrial application, stainless steel threaded rods and studs offer strength, corrosion resistance, and ease of use.
