HARDOX® Anti-wear Steel

Resistance to
extreme abrasion

HARDOX® anti-wear steels offer the best resistance to wear due to contact, impact and erosion in the most hostile environments. Created to increase the lifespan of piece without losing properties and while maintaining productivity.

Extreme robustness from the surface to the core (GUARANTEED BY THE FACTORY). The minimum hardness of the core is 90% compared with the minimum guaranteed surface hardness.

Anti-wear steels are ideal for:

Giant bucket wheel excavator

Properties
of the anti-wear steels

Good weldability

Prolongs lifespan

Wide variety of hardnesses

Optimal folding capacity

Good tenacity

Technical and mechanical characteristics of HARDOX® anti-wear steels

The most popular abrasion resistant steel, which offers excellent structural properties.
Abrasion resistant steel with nominal hardness of 450 HBW. Can be cold folded, but due to its high hardness, this must be carried out slowly, properly preparing the cut areas for grinding and with a radius of over 6 times the thickness. If heating is carried out at over 200ºC the mechanical properties of the steel are reduced. It can be welded, but with preheating to 100ºC. The area affected by the welding or by oxy-fuel cutting loses the original mechanical properties.
The mechanical properties are obtained by a thermomechanical process or by tempering.

Applications:
Due to its good resistance to wear and tenacity, it is used in crushers, mills, tippers, blade reinforcements, uprooting and removal machinery, etc. In general, pieces subjected to medium level wear.

The weldable steel, highly resistant to abrasion.
Hardox® 500 increases the load capacity and prolongs the lifespan, while having good processability and resistance properties.
It can be cold curved, but due to its high hardness, this must be carried out slowly, properly preparing the cut areas for grinding and with a radius of over 10 times the thickness. If heating is carried out at over 200ºC the mechanical properties of the steel are reduced. It can be welded, but with preheating to 100ºC. The area affected by the welding or by oxy-fuel cutting loses the original mechanical properties. The mechanical properties are obtained by a thermomechanical process or by tempering.

Applications:
Due to its high resistance to wear, it is used for sieves, conveyor belts, mining, quarries, lorry containers, laundry rooms, etc.

The new generation of anti-wear sheets for tipper trailers, bodywork of mining and agricultural tippers, buckets, containers and other equipment exposed to high levels of wear.

The Hardox® 500 Tuf anti-wear sheet is the latest update of the Hardox® range. It offers exceptional and guaranteed resistance, hardness and tenacity in a single anti-wear sheet. It allows folding.

Hardness of 550 HBW and a similar resistance to that of Hardox 500.

Hardox® 550 has a nominal hardness of 550 Brinell and a similar resistance to that of Hardox® 500. It is designed to provide greater durability against wear, but without the formation of cracks. It is not necessary to preheat up to a thickness of 20mm. In greater thicknesses, it is obligatory to preheat the sheet before making the cut.

The extra-hard steel, resistant to extreme wear.

Hardox® 600 has a nominal hardness of 600 HBW and an extremely high resistance. Specially designed for extreme wear conditions, it can be cut and welded, making it an ideal option for high performance applications. It is not necessary to preheat up to a thickness of 12mm. In greater thicknesses, it is obligatory to preheat the sheet before making the cut. HARDOX®600 does not have a structural capacity.

Steel pipes resistant to abrasion, with excellent performance and a longer lifespan.

Hardox® pipes offer exceptional performance when high resistance to abrasion and a lighter product are needed.
Expensive products which experience wear, such as pipes with hardened coatings and white iron with a high chrome content can be replaced. They exceed and last longer than soft carbon steel pipes in extreme wear applications, for example, pipes which transport caustic and abrasive slurries.
