    Iron Grip Barbell Company

    Iron Grip Leads the Way In Urethane Free Weights

    With a state-of-the-art manufacturing facility, engineering expertise, and years of experience, Iron Grip remains the leading supplier of Urethane free weight equipment to the fitness industry.

    In the complicated field of urethane molding, Iron Grip remains the innovator in the fitness industry. Iron Grip has spent years developing and perfecting its proprietary urethane composition and manufacturing process to maximize durability, adhesion, looks and performance — and they've got the satisfied customers to prove it. With nearly 8 million pounds of urethane plates sold, and over 44,000 pairs of Urethane dumbbells sold, Iron Grip is clearly the leader in this category.

    Today, Iron Grip is one of the few commercial fitness equipment manufacturers that operates its own on-site factory in the U.S., and the only fitness company with its own urethane molding capabilities. Iron Grip's engineers were faced with some daunting challenges when they first began to design the urethane production line. Encasing bulky, heavy parts (on a large-scale production basis) had not yet been achieved in Urethane molding in the fitness industry. Iron Grip led the way in designing new machinery and molding techniques to accommodate large parts such as a 45 lb. Olympic plate or a 150 lb. dumbbell.

    Iron Grip's R&D team determined that such heavy parts would be best encased via an injection molding process, in which liquid Urethane is injected into a mold and flows around a solid insert. As the Urethane fills the mold, it forms a cross-linked molecular web that completely surrounds the insert. The urethane is then precisely heated as it cures and solidifies. This method produces a seamless coating with an exceptionally high tear strength and high wear resistance and results in a more durable product overall. Iron Grip's proprietary fluid molding process ensures that the urethane encasement will never split or peel, unlike imported urethane or rubber-coated dumbbells which can tear, split or peel away from the metal insert.

    Iron Grip's production facility also allows them to offer a sophisticated customization option for their Urethane equipment. Because of its distinctive properties, the urethane can be engraved and filled to create permanent weight markings and complex custom logos and text. Iron Grip is one of the very few free-weight companies that can offer custom decoration, and the only manufacturer that can provide such a high degree of complicated logo reproduction and permanence. Virtually any custom logo can be recreated using Iron Grip's advanced computer-controlled engraving methods.

    Iron Grip recently completed a move into a new manufacturing plant, nearly twice the size of their previous facility. The new facility provides Iron Grip with a higher level of control over quality, production processes and inventory, and allows them to build product to the highest quality specifications.

    IVANKO RUBBER DUMBBELL

    Since we introduced the industry's first rubber dumbbell in 1983, we have uncompromisingly refined and fine tuned the design 51 times in passionate pursuit of an ideal: a rubber dumbbell that is gentlest on equipment, safest for people, indestructible, with supertight fastening, neutralized odor, a classic look, an awesome feel. We're never satisfied, never finished. Perfection is an elusive goal. But this rubber dumbbell is 51 steps closer to it.

    Ivanko's PermaLockTM fastening system employs proprietary machining tolerances and surface preparation to achieve a metal-to-metal bond that requires 400 foot pounds of torque to twist apart. (The correct measure of rotational resistance is “foot pounds” of torque, not “psi,” which is sometimes used incorrectly by manufacturers).

    IVANKO STAINLESS STEEL OLYMPIC BAR

    Approved for International Competition, International Powerlifting Federation

    We heat treat this stainless steel bar to 218,000 PSI, because our tests tell us anything weaker will bend. We further straighten each bar to a tolerance of 10/1000 inch, because anything less straight will cause rotational torque during heavy lifting. We make it of stainless steel because it needs no coating, so there's nothing to peel off, chip or rust. Finally, we ultrasonic test and magnetic particle test every bar to detect internal and external cracks that can cause the bar to snap.

    The International Powerlifting Federation (I.P.F.) counts our stainless steel Olympic bar among the very few that it approves for International Competition. We appreciate the endorsement, I.P.F., but we'repressing ahead with Design No. 124 anyway.
