Why Switch to Continuous Cast Iron?
The unique make-up of Versa Bar makes it an attractive alternative to traditional metals like aluminum, bronze, steel and brass. The graphite’s microstructure helps to retain oil and keep your parts lubricated for longer. It also functions as a built-in chip breaker, allowing it to be milled and finished much faster than other metals.
Versa Bar is even partially self-lubricating, limiting the change of tool damage should there be oil loss.
New tooling and coolant technologies make it possible for Versa Bar to machine at rates equal to or better than many metals commonly in use today. Versa Bar’s unique metallurgic make-up remains very strong. The V-4 grade features a tensile strength of 80,000 psi. This grade can be heat treated to reach 100,000 psi.
Select Versa Bar and you will get a better product providing lower finishing costs. Spend less and get more by letting American Iron & Alloys machine and finish your custom components from continuous cast iron.
