Mild steel threaded rod is a type of threaded fastener made from mild steel, which is a low-carbon steel with relatively low strength and ductility. It is commonly used in various applications where a threaded connection is required, such as in construction, industrial, automotive, and DIY projects.
Mild steel threaded rods are typically produced through a cold-forming process, where a continuous steel rod is cut into desired lengths and then threaded along the entire length of the rod. They are available in various diameters, lengths, and thread pitches to suit different applications and requirements.
Some of the key features of mild steel threaded rods include:
It’s important to note that mild steel threaded rods may not be suitable for applications that require high strength, corrosion resistance, or extreme temperature resistance. In such cases, alternative materials, such as stainless steel or other specialized alloys, may be more appropriate. Additionally, proper torque and load specifications should be followed during installation to ensure the threaded connection is properly tightened and secured.
