DARTON sleeves excel in the harsh environment of sprint car racing. Our centrifugally cast nodular composition represents the highest quality of any cast material. The unique matrix of DARTON's centrifugally cast nodular iron sleeves provides unexcelled surface toughness for the rough, gritty environment of sprint car racing. DARTON's unique casting process provides a bore finish which, while very tough, promotes quick and total piston ring seal for the most complete combustion possible from each cylinder.
DARTON is a leader in production of motorcycle sleeves for the the street and the track. Our centrifugally cast "iron" sleeves for street use are typically 20% to 30% stronger and exhibit better wear characteristics than any sleeve available at any price. The street user needs total ring seal while at the same time being assured of dependability for long mileage. DARTON sleeves are the answer. For race bikes on gas or fuel, DARTON's centrifugally cast nodular iron sleeves represent the highest strength part available for the most severe duty in any application. With DARTON sleeves, there will be no hard spots, no meltdowns and a guarantee of perfect ring seal.

DARTON's centrifugally cast nodular iron sleeves exceed ASTM chemistry and strength standards by wide margins. Significant increases in strength and elongation are translated into our sleeves' ability to exhibit high wear and take severe punishment while still performing as required. DARTON's centrifugally cast nodular iron sleeves exhibit many of the strength requirements of steel while retaining the cost advantages of cast iron.
About Darton Sleeves.
A Division of Darton International, Inc.
Darton International was incorporated in 1978 with a goal of becoming a premier manufacturer of automotive speed equipment parts. In pursuit of this objective lead the founders to establish manufacturing relationships with unique European factories specialising in products and techniques which would harmonize with Darton's potential customers
Darton initially selected two groups of products to concentrate on: steelstampings (such as valve covers) and precision CYLINDER SLEEVES. One of the company's first customers for both groups of products was Milodon Engineering. Together, they pioneered new and innovative ways to manufacture their product, performance cylinder sleeves. Darton became the first supplier of high quality centrifugally cast ductile iron cylinder sleeves to meet SAE and ASTM rigid quality control standards.
In 1990, Darton became part of an international company based in Portugal. Pachancho, a 100 year-old manufacturing firm, located in picturesque northern Portugal, leads a group of manufacturing firms specializing in automotive products such as piston rings, CYLINDER SLEEVES, iron castings and specialty aluminium castings. The Darton affiliate company is world renowned and is a major supplier to the automotive industry in Europe. All of Darton's cylinder sleeve material is produced in our Portugal foundry, which is recognized worldwide for excellence in all forms of unique types of centrifugally cast ductile and grey iron. Still today the focus of Darton International's business is the manufacture and delivery of cylinder sleeves, sometimes referred to as cylinder liners. Darton continues to advance in the performance racing industry market.
Darton is also the prime sleeve supplier for the Ford SVO aluminium engine program. Darton employs a market strategy aimed at becoming the primary sleeve supplier of choice for small engine shops and OEM's alike. To accomplish this task, Darton continues its research and development and utilizes state-of-the-art manufacturing technology to continually market with new products such as our latest invention: "modular integrated deck" sleeve kits.
