Welding compatibility: Normal rod can break or burn in any type of welding. Therefore, low-carbon rod should be selected for welding which makes weld or lap weld work easier and saves time.

Corrosion resistance: Rod manufactured through thermo-mechanical processes shall be verified which eliminates harmful residual torsional stress in the rod and increases corrosion resistance.

Flexibility: It is very important to check the flexibility of the rod which will help in maintaining the strength of bricks, sand, cement, and concrete used in construction.

Rod Type Consistency: When purchasing multiple types of rod, ensure that the rod quality is consistent. Because the same casting and tempering process ensures consistency in rod types and quality variation is minimized.

Straightness: Straight rod is required for pillar, beam, and column work on the construction site. So before buying the rod, you should check the straightness of the rod. As a result, both time and labor will be less in building the structure with rod.

Certification of Rod: Before purchasing the rod, the certification of the manufacturer must be verified to ensure that the rod has been properly quality controlled.
