Ductilite Iron Hub Provides Lighter Weight
Sep 1, 2001 12:00 PM
Gunite Corp has unveiled new ductile iron hubs with a patented casting configuration and integrated flange design. These produce a hub that weighs less than one pound more than an aluminum hub, yet maintains the strength and durability of a ductile iron hub. The Gunite Ductilite iron hub weighs more than 10 pounds less than a traditional ductile iron hub and just 11 ounces more than an aluminum hub.
Unlike aluminum hubs rated for axle applications up to 13,200 pounds, Ductilite iron hubs are available for all popular front axle applications from 10,000- to 14,600-lb ratings. Plus, the Ductilite is also compatible with all existing wheels and drums. For further information, contact Gunite, 302 Peoples Ave, Rockford IL 61108.
