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.
Improved Mechanicals – cold drawing is cold working and as a result an increase in both tensile and yield strength is achieved. Greater resistance to “mushrooming” under load as compared to carbon and/or mild steels.
Improved Wear Resistant – capabilities far exceed that of “cold roll” steel.
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).
