Hardox® wear plates are the world’s leading abrasionresistant steel. The incomparable hardness and impact strength ensure high productivity, enhanced durability and an extended service life for your equipment. In addition, the wide range of grades and thicknesses allows Hardox® wear plates to match your needs while also increasing your productivity. With its combination of superior hardness and toughness, Hardox® wear plates are the abrasion-resistant steel of choice for extending the service life of any equipment, parts and structures in the most challenging environments.
For rocks, sand, coal, minerals, scrap metal and other damaging elements, Abraservice will find the best Hardox grade for you, ensuring that your equipment operates at peak efficiency.
Hardox® wear plates are available in grades from 400 HBW to over 600 HBW (for extreme cases) and thicknesses from 0.7 mm to 160 mm. All Hardox® grades has hardness guarantee across the thickness.
*The relative service life intervals are valid for sliding wear only.
**Typical for 70 mm.
Hardox® WearCalc helps users compare different Hardox® grades for their particular application and calculate the increase in service life and payload when upgrading from mild steel to high-strength steel. The app can also be used to predict erosion wear, sliding wear and impact wear.
This is the abrasion-resistant steel for high-temperature demands. Hardox® HiTemp delivers extreme wear resistance at high temperatures ranging within 300°C–500°C range. While traditional quenched and tempered wear-resistant steels lose their hardness at temperatures over 200°C, Hardox® HiTemp maintains its hardness even at temperatures reaching up to 500°C. Its properties are achieved by using high-quality raw materials combined with a carefully controlled manufacturing process. Hardox® HiTemp has a hardness of 400 HBW at the time of delivery and is available between 5 mm–51 mm thick.
Choose Hardox® 500 Tuf when formability and abrasion resistance are what you need. Hardox® 500 Tuf is an abrasion-resistant steel that offers both high performance durability and excellent formability. Hardox® 500 Tuf is the first 500 HBW wear plate with structural properties. It delivers extreme hardness and guaranteed toughness in a single wear plate. The material offers a 70–100% longer service life in comparison to conventional 400 HBW abrasion-resistant steel, and it includes improved dent protection. Hardox® 500 Tuf is available in thickness of 4 mm–25.4 mm and has a guaranteed impact strength of 27 J at -20°C in whole thickness range.
Hardox® Extreme is the world's hardest wear plate with a nominal hardness of 60 HRC and typical hardness of 650–700 HBW.
With a nominal hardness of 550 HBW & 600 HBW respectively, Hardox® 550 & 600 are quenched and tempered materials that can drastically improve the service life of components in applications that demand a high/extreme resistance to abrasion. Products are available to suit a variety of specific applications or wear issues. Please get in touch to find out more.
This is a new steel that combines abrasion and corrosion resistance. Hardox® HiAce has been developed to withstand wear in low pH acidic environments. Equipment can come under attack from a combination of acids, sulphates or salts containing chlorides. Insidious and aggressive acids oxidizes the steel’s surface decreasing service life, loss of productivity and the need for increased maintenance.
Hardox® HiAce drastically slows the oxidation process whilst also performing to the same levels as a conventional 450 HBW wear resistant steel in regular environments. Guaranteed high toughness in low temperatures gives even more potential for most challenging applications. Available in a thickness range of 4 mm–25.4 mm, Hardox® HiAce prevails in conditions with low pH levels, increasing the service life of equipment up to 3 times longer when compared to a conventional 400 HBW steel.
