Stainless steel threaded rod products are used in construction and various small and large projects, where speed and ease of assembly are required. These are essentially rods which have been threaded so that nuts or other fasteners can be screwed on, but are unique in the way that both ends are open. This, when compared to a screw with a head on one end, offers more versatility as stainless steel nuts or marine fasteners can be tightened onto both ends.

Choosing a Coarse or Fine Stainless Steel Threaded Rod

The question does arise as to the application of fine and course threading. The primary reason for different threading is that they offer various benefits for different materials and hence applications too.

  • With brittle materials, a coarse thread is used as it is easier to thread and unthread. Coarse threads can have thicker coatings or plating applied and offer less chance of cross-threading.
  • Fine coarse threads are used in conjunction with harder and more durable materials, as they are ideal for applications with specific tensile strength or other requirements.
  • As you can see, the world of stainless steel threaded rods can become quite intricate and specialised, depending on the project or application in question. This is precisely why Marsh Fasteners is strategically positioned in the industry, providing you with quality stainless steel rods and associated products for your particular industrial or other need.
