If you want the hardest, most wear-resistant steel, you want Hardox®. Hardox® Abrasion-Resistant (AR) steel is characterized by its weldability, wear characteristics, and serious toughness. Using Hardox® AR steel will give your equipment a longer, more productive life and saves you money.
Here are the various grades of Hardox® metal plate we work with.
A Highly Versatile, Abrasion-Resistant Steel
Hardox® 450 is an abrasion-resistant wear steel plate with a nominal hardness of 450 HBW. The 450 combines good bendability and weldability with an option for guaranteed impact toughness (Hardox® 450 Tuf).
These products can be used in many components and structures that are subject to wear.
Abrasion-Resistant Steels Are Targeted At Severe Wear Applications
Hardox® 500 AR wear steel plate is a bendable, weldable, and highly abrasion-resistant steel with a nominal hardness of 500 HBW. It’s suitable for applications that demand higher wear resistance.
Hardox® 500 AR wear steel plates can be used in moving chains and to line conveyor belts.
The World’s Hardest Wear Plate With Structural Properties
The new generation Hardox® AR 500 Tuf wear steel plate is the latest upgrade in the Hardox® range. It delivers high strength, extreme hardness, and guaranteed toughness in one and the same wear plate.
The material offers a 70-100% longer service life compared to conventional 400 HB AR steel and features improved dent protection.
Hardox® 500 Tuf is an abrasion-resistant AR steel that is the perfect fit for high-performance shovels, dippers, and buckets.
The extra hard and tough steel for extreme wear
Hardox® 600 is a great choice for use in linings in conveyor systems, wear strips, feeders, chutes, concrete mixers, rotating hammers, and shredder knives.
The extra-high tough steel for structural wear parts
HiTuf is a great choice for structural wear in the recycling industry like thick cutting edges, demolition tools, and rippers.
For Wear Resistance At Elevated Temperatures
Hardox® High-Temperature AR wear steel plate is a high-heat grade of AR wear steel plate that provides a cost-efficient solution for wear resistance at high temperatures in the 300–500°C range (570–930°F).
Hardox® HiTemp meets an important wear challenge: Standing up to abrasive conditions in high-heat environments.
All this is why Hardox® HiTemp is the best AR steel for high-temperature-tough industries like steel, cement, coal power plants, recycling, and asphalt.
