Stainless steel threaded rods are regularly found around industrial projects or active construction sites. Stainless steel threading products are often used to avoid corrosion and staining. Stainless steel all thread alloys combine low carbon grade properties along with different percentages of chromium and nickel.

Stainless steel threaded rods’ chromium content helps to prevent it from corroding, which leads to the degradation and staining of the metal. However, the low carbon content of stainless steel threading rod doesn’t allow it to be effectively hardened, which makes stainless steel all thread rod ideal for some jobs and not so great for others.
Stainless Steel All Thread Benefits
There are many unique values provided by stainless steel threading rod that make it an extremely useful construction and industrial project material. Our stainless steel raw materials and stainless steel threaded rod provide a bevy of benefits that will improve the overall scope of your project. Some of the more predominant benefits of stainless steel threaded rod, include:
- Corrosion Resistance - Lower alloyed grades resist corrosion in atmospheric and pure water environments, while high-alloyed grades can resist corrosion in most acids, alkaline solutions, and chlorine bearing environments, properties which are utilized in process plants.
- Fire & Heat Resistance - Special high chromium and nickel-alloyed grades resist scaling and retain strength at high temperatures.
- Strength-To-Weight - The work-hardening property of austenitic grades, that results in a significant strengthening of the material from cold-working alone, and the high strength duplex grades, allow reduced material thickness over conventional grades, therefore cost savings.
- Long Term Value - When the total life cycle costs are considered, stainless is often the least expensive material option.
Stainless Steel All Thread Rod Strength
Stainless steel threaded rod proves, when tested, to be stronger than most Grade 2 steels, but weaker than Grade 5 and Grade 8 stainless steel raw materials that have been hardened. Depending on the ratio of metals in the alloy, the definitive strength of most stainless steel grades will range from about 70 to 220 ksi. In addition, stainless steel threaded rod has less of a magnetic quality than standard steel.
Stainless Steel Threaded Rod Applications
Stainless steel threading can be used for a wide range of applications. Some of the more prevalent uses of stainless steel all thread rod, include:
