The Iron Grip Barbell Company introduces its new line of Hard Chrome Olympic Bars.

March 1999, Costa Mesa, CA – Exclusively American-made, Iron Grip Olympic Bars feature a unique, industrial, Hard Chromen finish. Iron Grip's Hard Chrome is aircraft quality and is manufactured to military specifications, ensuring a satin finish that is virtually indestructible. Iron Grip bars will never chip, flake or peel like other decorative chrome bars can, and are far more rust resistant than either black oxide or regular nickel-baked chrome bars. Manufactured from heat treated, turned, ground and polished steel, Iron Grip Hard Chrome bars feature machined steel sleeves with exceptionally slick Nylotron bushings. These product-specific bushings will provide free and continuous rotation through years of heavy use, and are extremely durable. The sleeves are attached with shoulder bolts featuring nylon-impregnated threads for extra durability. All fittings on Iron Grip's new Olympic bars are welded, rather than press fit to the bars.
