Versa-Bar Continuous Cast Iron Means Improved Performance
Why choose Versa-Bar V-2 gray iron? Versa-Bar contains a high graphite flake content giving it numerous benefits over other gray iron on the market. Microscopic graphite flakes have very small recesses promoting the retention of oil. Lubricated parts stay oily longer. In the event of oil loss, versa-bar is able to retain its lubrication, and it has a better chance of survival.
What does this all mean? Greater durability. Longer life. A better product for a better price.
