Dura-Bar ductile iron is a cost-saving alternative to low-medium carbon steels and has similar strengths with excellent free machining properties.
Dura-Bar gray irons provide a wide range of improvements through machinability, strength, hardness and wear capabilities.
Dura-Bar brings many advantages over steel, and several were realized by the manufacturer of hydraulic cylinder pistons. Machinability, wear resistance and part life were all issues that needed solutions fast. Dura-Bar provided those solutions which resulted in a total part cost reduction.
Dura-Bar continuous cast gray and ductile iron bar products, adds tube portfolio with the launch of Dura-Tube®. The new tube portfolio, produced utilizing either a proprietary continuous cast process or trepan process, is now available in a selection of sizes and grades.
