Hardox Wear Plate / Sheet / CR Sheet (Material Supply)
— The renowned hard and tough steel for aggressive environments
With its unparalleled combination of hardness and toughness, Hardox® wear plate sets the standard worldwide for abrasion-resistant (AR) steel. Thanks to its unique qualities, it can even perform as a load-bearing part in many applications, opening new possibilities for structural design innovation.
Abrasive applications and aggressive wear environments are simply no match for Hardox. Whatever your wear challenges, Hardox wear plate offers better wear resistance, higher payload and longer service life. The Hardox family features the original wear plate — thinner and thicker than ever at 0.7 160 mm (0.027 6.25″) — as well as tubes and round bars.
By delivering superior quality, reliability and performance, Hardox keeps your equipment — and your business — up and running.
Hardox 450 is an abrasion-resistant steel with a nominal hardness of 450 HBW. Hardox 450 combines good bendability and weldability with an option for guaranteed impact toughness (Hardox 450 Tuf).
The products can be used in many different components and structures that are subject to wear. Hardox 450, with an extra 50 Brinell hardness over our 400 grade, provides better dent and abrasion resistance as well as longer wear life, so you can achieve even greater savings.
Hardox 500 is a bendable and weldable abrasion-resistant steel, with a nominal hardness of 500 HBW. Suitable for applications that demand higher wear resistance.
Hardox 500 increases payload and increases service life while maintaining good processability with guaranteed impact toughness when specified (Hardox 500 Tuf).
Hardox 500 Tuf — The new generation of wear plate for tipper trailers, mining and agriculture dump bodies, buckets, containers and other equipment exposed to heavy wear.
Hardox® 500 Tuf wear plate is the latest upgrade in the Hardox range. It delivers exceptional strength, hardness and toughness in a single wear plate, guaranteed.
And although it’s a newcomer to the Hardox family, it has proved its worth around the world in tipper bodies, containers, mining tippers and trays, buckets of all kinds, agricultural equipment, liners and wear parts. Hardox® 500 Tuf combines the best properties from Hardox® 450 and Hardox® 500. The result? A wear plate with no real competition on the market.
Hardox 550 — At 550 HBW and with a toughness close to Hardox 500
Hardox® 550, with a nominal hardness of 550 HBW and toughness close to Hardox 500, increases wear life but not at the expense of crack integrity.
Hardox 600— The extra hard and tough steel for extreme wear
At a nominal hardness of 600 HBW, Hardox® 600 has a uniquely high impact toughness.
Especially suited for extreme wear conditions, it can still be cut and welded, making it an excellent choice for high-performance applications.
Hardox HiAce — The new ace in corrosion-resistant wear steel for acidic environments
Hardox® HiAce, the latest addition to the Hardox® wear plate range, is an ace at fighting both abrasive wear and corrosion. It features the same excellent properties as Hardox® 450, with a Brinell hardness of 425 – 475 HBW and a minimum Charpy impact test value of 27 J at -20°C (20 ft-lb at -4°F).
Hardox® HiAce is a true wear fighter, especially in acidic corrosive environments that threaten to eat away at your equipment. This corrosion-resistant steel plate helps to meet the challenges of corrosive wear environments found in municipal and industrial waste management, waste-to-energy plants, and in mining and process industries.
Hardox HiTemp — The Hardox® wear plate that can take a heat
Hardox® HiTemp is a high-heat grade of Hardox® wear plate that provides a cost-efficient solution for wear resistance at high temperatures in the 300–500°C range (570–930°F).
Whereas traditional quenched and tempered wear-resistant steels lose hardness at higher temperatures, Hardox® HiTemp high-temperature steel delivers extreme wear resistance. Its properties are achieved by using high-quality raw material combined with a carefully controlled manufacturing process.
Hardox® HiTemp is delivered as 5–51 mm (0.197’’–2’’) plate. It can be cut, welded and machined using the same kind of machinery and technology as for conventional steel.
