C276 Fasteners

Atlanta Rod & Manufacturing forges massive quantities of C276 Fasteners in our plant every day for domestic and export projects.

C276 is a nickel-molybdenum-chromium wrought alloy that is considered a “versatile, corrosion resistant alloy.” C276 has excellent corrosion resistance to both oxidizing and reducing media as well as excellent resistance to localized corrosion attack. C276 is very easily fabricated by Atlanta Rod and doesn’t require heat-treating after forging or welding. C276 performs very well in many industrial applications, namely chemical processing.

Whether you are looking for a large run of 3/4” Heavy Hex Nuts or a small run of custom 1 1/2” Hex Bolts and everything in between, Atlanta Rod & Manufacturing is your source for C276 fasteners.

AIS Compliant Bolts and Nuts

Have you been seeing a lot of your projects requiring AIS compliant bolts, rods or nuts? Not sure what AIS means?

The American Iron and Steel (AIS) provision requires Clean Water State Revolving Fund (CWSRF) and Drinking Water State Revolving Fund (DWSRF) assistance recipients to use iron and steel products that are produced in the United States. This requirement applies to projects for the construction, alteration, maintenance, or repair of a public water system or treatment works.

It was originally started in 2014 and meant to last only a year but it has been renewed each year and in September 8, 2017, the President signed Public Law 115-56, the “Continuing Appropriations Act 2018 and Supplemental Appropriations for Disaster Relief Requirements Act, 2017″ which provides fiscal year 2018 partial-year appropriations through December 8, 2017. This law continues the requirement for the use of AIS products in DWSRF projects.

Not sure if your project or fasteners apply for an exemption from this Law?

There is no broad exemption for fasteners from the American Iron and Steel (AIS) requirements. Significant fasteners used in SRF projects are not subject to the waiver for projects and must comply with the AIS requirements. Significant fasteners include fasteners produced to industry standards (e.g., ASTM standards) and/or project specifications, special ordered or those of high value.

Atlanta Rod can manufacture your AIS compliant fasteners to your ASTM standards, project specifications, or special requirements – all while meeting the domestic criteria that allows you to be a AIS Drinking Water State Revolving Fund assistance recipient.

Consider us, Atlanta Rod for your next DWSRF or CWSRF project where you want American Iron and Steel Bolts, Rods or Nuts.

SHEP Project

SHEP Project

The Savannah River Port in Savannah, Georgia is undergoing a massive construction project that will deepen the shipping channel by seven feet, and extend it by seven miles. This is one of the most important  major construction projects that is currently going on in our home state. A deeper shipping channel allows for fewer and larger ships to move the same amount of goods in and out of our country. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers calculates that this project will save our nation $213 million every year in transportation costs.

Atlanta Rod is thrilled to participate in the project. So far we have manufactured over 40,000 lbs of domestic 316 stainless and 2507 Super Duplex bolts and nuts all manufactured in Georgia. We’ve provided full traceability and provided stringent in-house testing to ensure each lot of domestic bolts meets the project requirements. The bolts and nuts are from 5/8″ diameter up to 2″ diameter and all packaged and labeled per job site requirements.
