Does commercially available, mild steel all thread rod meet F1554 Grade 36?

Typically, the answer is no.  It is rare for distributors or manufacturers to keep traceability on their all thread rod because more often than not it is sold without certifications.  If they do have mill test reports, there is rarely a Reduction of Area value which is required to determine whether or not the material meets F1554 Grade 36.  Other issues include the maximum tensile strength requirement is often exceed and the Elongation requirement is rarely met.

If your project requires F1554 Grade 36 all thread rod, make sure you check with the manufacturer and require full certification documents to confirm that the material meets this specification prior to ordering.
