The standard materials used by IHL for the manufacture of our hydraulic manifolds are:

• Ductile Iron Bar, grade 65-45-12

- Tensile strength (minimum) : 448MPa
- Yield strength (minimum) : 310MPa
- Elongation (minimum) : 12%
- Hardness (minimum) : 130 BHN
- Hardness (maximum) : 207 BHN
- Manifolds manufactured from ductile iron are pressure rated to 400 bar (5800 psi).

•  Aluminium 6061 T651

- Tensile strength (minimum) : 270 MPa
- Yield strength (minimum) : 240 MPa
- Elongation (minimum) : 10%
- Hardness (minimum) : 85 BHN
- Hardness (maximum) : 100 BHN
- Manifolds manufactured from aluminium are pressure rated to 210 bar (3000 psi).

Both materials have mechanical properties well suited for the manufacture of hydraulic manifolds.

Other materials can be sourced and used if required by clients, and will be quoted on a case by case basis.
