Eaton's Dura-Kote technology is a new era of corrosion-resistant technology.

Eaton Dura-Kote sets a new standard

Get ready to upgrade your entire vocational vehicle fleet and industrial systems. Eaton's Dura-Kote™ plating technology is here to reign in a new era of corrosion-resistant technology.
Eaton's Dura-Kote plated carbon steel adapters outperform the competition in rust and corrosion resistance. They have been rigorously tested and kept its integrity for up to 1,000 hours, lasting 3 times longer than the next leading adapter. Being subjected to moisture, grit and ASTM B117 salt spray testing requirements, Eaton Dura-Kote plating is setting new standards for the SAEJ514 requirements.
Dura-Kote-plated carbon steel adapters exceed the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) standards, are approved by the Automotive Industry Action Group (AIAG) product part approval process and all manufacturing facilities are certified by the International Organization of Standardization (ISO).
The durability of Eaton's Dura-Kote plated carbon steel adapters can help save thousands of dollars in maintenance costs. Equipment downtime is shortened, and replacement expenses are cut due to the plating’s greater life expectancy and corrosion resistance.
In a recent success story, the switch to a Dura-Kote-plated carbon steel adapter saved an OEM customer thousands of dollars in maintenance and downtime. Previously, the customer was using a competitive part that had to be upgraded to comply with the company's metal specification requirements. Even then, the competitive part was only rated up to 240 hours. The customer not only had to stop production to frequently change the adapters, the rust produced would often contaminate the surrounding parts. As a result, the customer switched some of its adapters to the Eaton Dura-Kote-plated carbon steel adapters and has already recognized the savings with no need to put in expensive special orders or upgrades.
Dura-Kote plating now comes standard on all Eaton carbon steel adapters, eliminating additional quotes, special orders and longer lead times. Lead times are the same with Dura-Kote plating standard and part numbers have remained unchanged, saving companies time and money.
Dura-Kote-plated carbon steel adapters fit easily into existing applications. They keep the same standards of form and functional capabilities, torque values, pressure ratings and assembly procedures.

  • Eaton continues to focus on being a one-stop shop for hose, fittings, adapters, as well as other hydraulic components.
  • Dura-Kote-plated adapters go beyond that of factory machines and continue to find applications in uncommon environments.
  • Adapters are an important component in applications such as wind farms and vocational vehicles. In wind turbines, they aid in the hydraulic systems that adjust blade pitch. If an adapter loses integrity, it can lead to catastrophic failure.
  • Salt trucks present a unique situation in which parts are constantly barraged with grit, grime and salt. Dura-Kote plating combats these tough conditions. If a truck is decommissioned due to unexpected maintenance (i.e. corroded adapters), some roads may go unsalted during the icy winter months, making driving dangerous for the general public. In many towns and cities across the U.S., fully functioning salt trucks are a necessity for everyday life.
  • Agricultural equipment is no stranger to dirt and grime. Dura-Kote-plated adapters give farmers an extra edge to mitigate the effects of these harsh conditions. During critical seasons, such as harvest, there is no time to be stuck in the mud. Dura-Kote plated steel adapters offers farmers peace of mind knowing that the adapters on their equipment will be able to resist the harshest of elements, and for the same price tag. There is no need to search for specialized or upgraded parts; Eaton Dura-Kote-plated adapters have you covered.
