Hex Bar

Hex Bar refers to a type of metal bar that has a hexagonal (six-sided) cross-section. It is also known as a hexagonal bar or hexagon bar. This shape sets it apart from round bars, offering certain advantages in specific applications.



Hex bars can be made from various materials, including steel, stainless steel, aluminum, brass, and other alloys. The material choice depends on factors such as strength requirements, corrosion resistance, and the specific application.


The dimensions of a hex bar are typically specified by the distance across opposite flats (width across two parallel sides). Common dimensions are specified in inches or millimeters.


Manufacturing: Hex bars are widely used in manufacturing for creating fasteners, such as hex bolts and hex nuts.

Machining: The hexagonal shape provides increased stability during machining processes, making hex bars suitable for precision machining applications.

Construction: Hex bars may be used in construction for specific applications where the hexagonal shape is advantageous.

Tooling: They can be used for manufacturing tools and components.

Machinability: The hexagonal shape allows for easy gripping and stability during machining processes, making hex bars preferable for certain applications.

Strength and Versatility: Hex bars offer strength and versatility, and they can be easily cut, drilled, and machined to suit various requirements.

Finishes: Hex bars can have different finishes based on the material and application. Finishes may include plain (uncoated), polished, or coated for improved corrosion resistance.
