Know Why Using a 6/6 Nylon Threaded Rod is a Smart Option for Fastening
Fastening requirements are aplenty in the industrial as well as domestic-use sector. And a threaded rod is among the preferred components to fasten two objects securely. They are popular mainly because these threaded rods offer strength, durability and above all, very secure fastening. While metal threaded rods have always been popular, of late 6/6 nylon threaded rods have seen a surging demand. In this article, we shall analyze the reasons for such plastic rods becoming popular and benefits of using the same.
Let’s begin with a brief look at the advantages of using 6/6 nylon rods that are threaded:
These rods are a cheaper yet effective alternative to the heavier and costlier metal rods and metal screws.
The other important factor is that the nylon rods do not stand the risk of gathering rust. Apart from that, the nylon variants are lighter in weight and they last for a long time.
Since nylon and plastic is not as reactive as a metal, they are suitable for use in coastal areas where the salt water gives an impetus to corrosion. In addition, they can even be used with materials of caustic nature. However, they might not be suitable for use with very strong chemicals or materials of acidic nature.
Plastic or nylon rods can be cut into smaller parts depending on one’s requirement. You don’t need to avail of die cutting services to cut plastic rods, which is not the case with metal threaded rods. Even if you are using these nylon rods at home, you can easily cut them with appropriate tools.
Overall, nylon rods have shown performance that is almost as good as their metal counterparts. This makes them a cheaper and a lighter alternative to metal.
If you tap the right die cutting services provider, you can get your threaded rod requirement custom made. You can choose the size, diameter, spacing between threads and other aspects depending on your requirements.
These rods are light weight yet they can bear heavy loads and hence they are also being opted for in industrial use. They also provide economies of large scale when ordered in bulk. This explains why such rods are also being used in heavy duty industries such as shipping and manufacturing as well.
However, it is advisable to order such rods from a reputed manufacturer. Ideally, a firm that manufactures other components such as bolts, screws, nuts, washers, bushings and spacers etc need would be a good firm to partner with because they are more likely to have a deeper industry experience. This will ensure that your orders are promptly delivered and are competitively priced. Hence, a threaded rod is among the most cost-effective yet efficient components that you can invest in.
