Since 1961, the Dura-Bar continuous iron casting process has provided unparalleled value for those needing an efficient metal for production of their machined component parts. Dura-Bar continuous cast iron offers numerous physical and structural advantages over steel, castings and aluminum because of the unique manufacturing methods. Our ability to engineer a combination of various graphite and matrix structures (ferritic versus pearlitic) results in a variety of grades with a full range of properties. That means Dura-Bar can be tailored in a way that best meets your needs. Plus, the Dura-Bar process enables the material's microstructure to be free from shrinkage, gas holes, sand and other tool-wearing inclusions.
So how is all this beneficial to you? Dura-Bar can lower overall part costs and improve part performance. Making parts run quieter, increasing tool life, gaining throughput and saving money are just a few of the many benefits realized by using Dura-Bar.
