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.
"X-panded" Sizes Now Available! Consider Dura-Bar your "one stop shop" with rounds available as large as 29.50" diameter and rectangles/squares up to 28" on the longest dimension - available for next day shipment. Available in both gray and ductile iron grades, the X-Product is ideal for machinery and equipment applications such as pattern plates, core boxes, slide ways and vises.
We've got a full calendar of events coming up! From Fort Worth and Denver, Milwaukee to Massachusetts. You'll find Dura-Bar on the road, sponsoring DUG (Developing Unconventional Gas) conferences, supporting the East Coast's premier manufacturing event, EASTEC 2019 and working to bring together industry with academics at the 2019 Fluid Power Tech Conference.
