* The 2-1/4” and 3" diameter bars are not covered under ASTM A722.
• ACI 355.1R section indicates an ultimate strength in shear has a range of .6 to .7 of the ultimate tensile strength. Designers should provide adequate safety factors for safe shear strengths based on the condition of use.
• Per PTI recommendations for anchoring, anchors should be designed so that:
• The design load is not more than 60% of the specified minimum tensile strength of the prestressing steel.
• The lock-off load should not exceed 70% of the specified minimum tensile strength of the prestressing steel.
• The maximum test load should not exceed 80% of the specified minimum tensile strength of the prestressing steel.


Williams 150 KSI bars are manufactured in strict compliance with ASTM A722-07 and AASHTO M275 Highway Specifications. The prestressing steel is high in strength yet ductile enough to exceed the specified elongation and reduction of area requirements. Selected heats can also pass the 135° supplemental bend test when required. Testing has shown Williams 150 KSI All-Thread-Bars to meet or exceed post tensioning bar and rock anchoring criteria as set by the Post Tensioning Institute including dynamic test requirements beyond 500,000 cycles of loading.

Williams 360° continuous thread deformation pattern has the ideal relative rib area configuration to provide excellent bond strength capability to grout or concrete, far better than traditional reinforcing deformation patterns.

All-Thread-Bars are cold rolled threaded to close tolerances under continuous monitoring procedures for quality control. Threads for Williams 150 KSI bar are specially designed with a rugged thread pitch wide enough to be fast under job site conditions and easy to assemble. They also have a smooth, wide, concentric, surface suitable for torque tensioning. This combination offers tremendous installation savings over inefficient, hot rolled, non-concentric thread forms. Threads are available in both right and left hand.

Williams All-Thread-Bars are threaded around the full circumference enabling the load transfer from the bar to the fasteners to occur efficiently without eccentric point loading. Williams fasteners easily meet the allowable load transfer limitations set forth by the Post Tensioning Institute. Williams 150 KSI All-Thread-Bars and fasteners are machined to tight tolerances for superior performance and mechanical lock. Precision machining greatly reduces concern of fastener loosening or detensioning. Williams 150 KSI bars exceed the deformation requirements of ASTM A722-07. Williams special thread deformation pattern projects ultra high relative rib area, much greater than conventional rebar. This provides for superior bond performance in concrete.
Steel Quality
Williams 1”, 1-1/4”, & 1-3/8” 150 KSI bars are smooth, hot rolled, high strength prestressing steel. The bars are cold-stressed and stress relieved to produce the above properties. The 1-3/4” through 3” 150 KSI bars are from an alloy based steel that is hot rolled, quenched and tempered to produce to the prescribed mechanical properties of ASTM A722-07.

Thorough inspection and traceability are carried out during all phases of manufacturing to assure the highest standards of quality.
Cutting (No Welding)
Williams 150 KSI All-Thread-Bar should not be subjected to the heat of a torch, welding or used as a ground. Field cutting should be done with an abrasive wheel or band saw.
Tensile Strength & Working Loads
Williams 150 KSI bars are available with ultimate tensile strengths and working loads as displayed above. Safety factors and functional working loads are at the discretion of the project design engineer, however test loads should never exceed 80% of the published ultimate bar strength.
