Ductile Iron Solid Bar & Rectangle Bar

Farmer’s Copper Ltd. maintains an extensive inventory of ductile iron in both 65-45-12 and 80-55-06. Our inventory consists of both solid and rectangle bar. Due to its ferritic structure, 65-45-12 is not intended for hardening. Hardening is achieved using 80-55-06. Ductile iron offers very good machinability and excellent surface finishes.

Typical Applications

  • Hydraulic cylinders
  • Manifolds
