Dura-Bar Ductile Iron as an Alternative to Steel

Dura-Bar ductile iron, available in a variety of grades, is a cost-saving alternative to low-medium carbon steels and has similar strengths with excellent free machining properties. The nodular graphite provides the same free machining benefits as lead, without creating the machining and waste disposal problems.
