Frequently Asked Questions

What are threaded rods?

Threaded rods, also referred to as studs, are helically-threaded rods made of metal, such as steel, brass and stainless steel, or sometimes plastic, like nylon. Similar to screws but without a head, these rods combine linear and rotational movement to create a strong fastening bond between materials, with the thread allowing for nuts and bolts to also be used when required. As these rods are designed to withstand very high levels of pressure and tension, they are commonly used in support systems among a variety of other applications.

What are they made of?

These threaded rods are made of Nylon 66, a stiff, tough, and durable polymer that provides a high mechanical strength yet remains lightweight. Nylon is also highly resistant to a lot of environmental factors, such as fuel, oil, wear, impact and fatigue, although it is not UV resistant. Nylon 66 also has a lower water absorption rate than nylon 6, as well as good electrical insulating properties, making it suitable for electrical applications.

It is important that care is taken to fasten nylon threaded rods with nylon nuts and bolts, especially in industries where low-weight components can be critical, such as automotive, marine, and construction projects.

What are they used for?

Threaded rods have many applications, acting as a pin to fasten, hold or connect two materials together. The threading on the rod provides a tightening action, using friction to hold the fastening together. Threaded rods can be used with woods, metals and even concrete to provide either a permanent or temporary base to support projects. This especially applies to construction projects, such as studding concrete foundations to provide additional support.
