Carbon Steel Tie Rod
Our tie rods are made from 1144 carbon steel (Stressproof® equivalent). The material meets ASTM A311 standards and is a carbon-manganese grade which is severely cold worked to produce high tensile properties. The bars are specially treated to relieve the stresses set up by the cold drawing, thus minimizing the tendency to warp after machining. 1144 carbon steel tie rods have high strength hardness, without the need of heat treatment. 1144 carbon steel has the combination of free machinability, minimum warp, high strength, and a good wear resistance.
We currently stock 11 imperial sizes of stressproof carbon steel tie rod available from 0.25 inch to 1.25 inch diameter. Tie rods are stocked and sold in 12 ft. lengths and can be cut to length. Standard packaging is used to prevent damage to the material during shipping. If you need custom packaging for your order, please let us know what your requirements are and we will accommodate your specific needs.
