Wexco introduces new (patent pending) heavy duty Dura 686XL™ inlay
November 2008- Improved durability, increased abrasion wear resistance, lower coefficient of friction and a broad range of compatibility with flight hard facing materials are key features of  the new patent pending Dura 686XL™ bimetallic alloy introduced by barrel maker Wexco Corporation of Lynchburg, Virginia.  After several years of development and testing Wexco unveiled a new  proprietary alloy chemistry that is formulated primarily for high speed, commodity resin applications produced in blow and injection molding machinery.  However the 686XL barrel can be employed for any molding or extrusion application where a standard lining is used and greater durability is desired.
