Threaded rod is recognized as fastening shaft or a pin threaded at both the ends. The most important specification to consider is its thread direction while manufacturing. The option include right hand, left hand or both right hand and left hand.
The right-hand threaded rod is widely considered as common version which moves in a clockwise direction and the left-hand threaded rod moves in a counter-clockwise direction which is usually used in engines and automobile spares.
There are rods that have a left hand-thread at one end and a right-hand thread at the other end. This dual thread technique is configured for specialty assemblies such as turnbuckles.
Threaded rods are well accepted for strength, scratch resistance and minimum maintenance value. They are available in a variety of materials with metal finishes being the most admired since they dominate good electrical and thermal conductivity, high reflectivity and resistance to oxidation.
Brass rods are corrosion resistant, strong and are generally used in items that have tendency of recurrent variation in temperature. Threaded rods are available in titanium, copper, specific alloys, bronze and steel.
There are different sizes available in threaded rods to meet the requirement of automobile engineering and structures. These rods are also used for plumbing and electrical purposes and cater to the requirements of agriculture and other sectors.
These products are also available in nonmetal material. Plastic is the most ordinary of these rods and includes any type of substance made of thermoplastics including fiber, nylon, PVC and rubber threads. These threaded rods are generally for short-term use since they don't qualify the same sturdiness and durability as metal rods.
