Clean Steel Technology – a manufacturing process that delivers consistent steel through control and refinement of the melt.
Proprietary Chemistry – a chemistry that offers excellent cleanliness and a well defined grain structure to provide fatigue resistance when material is in service.
Electric Furnace Melt – offers greater quality control at the mill including refinement of chemistry, grain size and shape.
Vacuum Degassed – eliminates many impurities found in standard commercial grade alloys. The result is a better, cleaner, and stronger product that extends service.
Heat Treated – eliminates excessive cost in heat treatment. Our material is thermally treated (as delivered) to a hardness of 269/341 BHN.
Machine Straightened – eliminates excessive bow and distortion. Our standard straightness is 1/8″ in any 5 feet, better than twice the industry standard (for rounds and squares only).
Stress Relieved – reduces the likelihood of material “walking” or moving during machining.
