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.
Hardness is the property that provides excellent wear protection during the entire service life of a Hardox wear plate.
Rocks, sand, coal, minerals, scrap metal and other hostile materials find it hard to make a lasting impression on Hardox® wear plates.
With its combination of high hardness, strength and toughness, Hardox steel has proven itself as the abrasion-resistant steel of choice for extending the service life of equipment, parts and structures in the most challenging environments.
Extreme wear resistance is also a strategic business factor. When you extend the service life of your equipment two, five or even ten or more times, you can watch your productivity — and your savings — grow.
Thanks to its extreme toughness, Hardox® copes with shocks, jolts, bangs, nicks and jabs, day after day. And with its good workshop properties, you can bend it, form it and weld it, and it will keep resisting cracks and crack propagation. In aggressive environments, where breakage failures can be unpredictable and costly or even threaten the safety of your equipment and people, Hardox wear plate helps you minimize the risks so your equipment — and your business — won’t break down.
Toughness: It's the definitive difference between Hardox wear plate and regular AR steel.
It's what helps makes Hardox possible to use as a structural steel.
So you can bend it, form it and weld it without losing its properties. Together with its high yield strength, this allows for lighter designs.
