A Part of Your Success

HARDOX wear plate is available in several hardness levels: HARDOX 400, HARDOX 450, HARDOX 500, HARDOX 550, HARDOX 600 and HARDOX HiTuf. It means that you can always specify a HARDOX steel grade to meet your specific needs.

HARDOX 400 and HARDOX 450 Are all-round wear resistant plates. Due to its high toughness, good bendability and weldability, the plates can also be used for load bearing duties in certain applications.
HARDOX 500 Is a bendable and weldable abrasion resistant plate which is used in applications that demand higher wear resistance.
HARDOX 550 Is a wear plate with a hardness of 550 Brinell and toughness equal to HARDOX 500. It is intended specially for heavy wear applications and targeted toward users and producers of wear parts using 12%manganese steel castings or 500 Brinell wear plates. The additional 50 Brinell you gain in hardness, when upgrading from 500 HBW steels, will increase wear life but not at the expense of crack integrity.
HARDOX 600 is the worlds hardest wear plate with a hardness of 600 Brinell. It is indented specially for extreme wear conditions and competes with wear materials like high chromium white alloy castings, Ni-hards and hardfacing. In spite of its extremely high hardness the steel is weldable and can be machined as well as thermally cut. For its hardness, the steel also has uniquely high impact strength.
HARDOX HiTuf Is a wear resistance plate with extremely high toughness to provide an excellent crack tolerance. HARDOX HiTuf has a hardness of 350 Brinell and is intended for heavy section structural wear parts where extra high demands are applied on the combination of wear and crack resistance. More information: HARDOX HiTuf, HARDOX HiTuf in the Workshop.
 WELDOX 700 Is a high strength structural steel (700 MPa) with outstanding toughness for a multitude of load carrying structures and other applications. Leading features are uniform properties, easy to weld and possible to bend real tight.
