Metric Drill Rods
Drill Rods are accurate in size and, as supplied, are not heated treated. Drill rod material is frequently used for dowel pins, punches, roller bearings, shafts, pins, plugs, tools, etc. Available in two types: water hardened and oil hardened. Water hardened, which you heat then quench (cool) in water, works well in maintenance applications without heat treating. Oil hardened, which you quench in oil after heating, offers toughness, machinability and abrasion resistance. Because oil cools more slowly than water, deformation caused by quenching of Oil Hardened Drill Rod is minimal compared to Water Hardened Drill Rod. Consequently, use oil hardened for complex and other critical parts. See our Metric Fastener Reference Charts.
