About Steel Rods

Steel rods are classified under ‘long products’. They are also known as steel rounds, round bars, round metals, or metal rods. Although also known as steel bars, steel rods differ from the bars in their shape, with the former being round, while the latter being available in different shapes.

Production, grade, types, and finish

Metals such as plain carbon steel, stainless steel, cast iron steel, tool steel, alloy steel, and cast steel are used to produce steel rods. Steel rods are manufactured using the hot-rolling or forging process. Depending on the treatment type, the steel rod is classified as annealed, normalised, or quenched and tempered steel rod.

Steel rods are typically formed through casting, forming, reducing, annealing, hardening, tempering, quenching, and finishing processes. The surface of a steel rod can be formed as plain or ribbed. Steel grades used to manufacture these rods are S275JR and C22E. The S275JR grade steel is a low-carbon, mild steel, hot-rolled rod, while the C22E grade steel is a low-carbon, quenched and tempered, mild steel rod.

Steel rods are manufactured in different types for use in various applications. They are supplied as hardened, damascus, stainless, silver, spring, tool, and mild, based on the properties, process, grades, and finish of the steel rod. The finish given to a rod is dependent on its end application. Finishes such as galvanised, hot-dip coated, powder-coated, primed, and painted are processed per the end use requirements.
