Metric Threaded Rod is available in various grades, lengths and finishes including brass, zinc-plated and stainless steel; they are essentially a metal bar made from mild steel or brass that has a helical thread all the way along its length. Stainless steel threaded rod is manufactured to be installed in areas where they are subjected to high levels of tension and pressure.
A2 stainless steel is often referred to as 304 or 18/8 Stainless. 18/8 actually refers to the amount of chromium and nickel in the alloy - 18% chromium and 8% nickel.
A2 stainless is the most common type of steel used for the manufacture of fasteners and is suitable for general use.
