Non-Corrosive Fiberglass Coil Rod (1”)
RJD Fiberglass Smooth Rod utilizes a specially blended and formulated custom-engineered resin, made in the USA, combining ultimate tensile strength and maximizing the RJD Gripper strength. (Do not use any non-RJD engineered rod with RJD grippers; this could result in form failure and/or injury.) RJD Fiberglass Smooth Rod will never rust, eliminating the need for breakback, plugging, and patching and allowing for superior architectural finishes. RJD Fiberglass Smooth Rod 50K System (1”) is offered in grey.
