Black Amalgon®

The lightweight, corrosion-resistant alternative to steel, aluminum or brass cylinders.



Constructed of fiber-reinforced thermoset epoxy matrix, Black Amalgon features an ultra-smooth inner surface.  It is a lightweight, high-strength, corrosion-resistant composite alternative to carbon steel, honed and chromed steel, stainless steel and aluminum or brass cylinder barrels.

75% Lighter Than Steel
One-fourth the weight of steel and 25 percent lighter than aluminum, Black Amalgon reduces material handling and shipping costs, speeds up assembly times and decreases stress loads on connected components.

 

Superior Corrosion Resistance
Trouble-free performance in chemical, high-moisture and other adverse environments reduces lifecycle costs.

Reduced Maintenance Costs
Our manufacturing process ensures a smooth, self-lubricating interior surface that prevents pistons from sticking even when idled for months. Seals can withstand more than one million strokes before replacement in our non-lubricated cylinders.

Storage Capacity
We can stock products to meet your JIT, MRP, or KAN BAN requirements. 

Eliminate Honing Costs
A 15 Ra micro-inch surface finish performs just like a honed surface – without the costs of honing. 

Shape Stability and Impact Resistance
Black Amalgon retains its circular shape and doesn’t dent like metals. Its material impact strength is 40 lzod ft-lbs. 

Excellent Thermal Stability
With a low coefficient of thermal expansion, Black Amalgon operates efficiently from -50°F to 250 °F

Non-Magnetic Material
Allows piston movement to be controlled by external magnetic sensors
