BSW is an imperial coarse thread with a 55-degree thread flank angle, and like other Thick threaded rods, is essentially a metal bar made from mild steel or brass that has a helical thread all the way along its length. Both thin and thick threaded rods (like UNC) are manufactured to be installed in areas where they are subjected to high levels of tension and pressure.
