The new ace in corrosion-resistant wear steel for acidic environments
Hardox® HiAce, the latest addition to the Hardox® wear plate range, is an ace at fighting both abrasive wear and corrosion. It features the same excellent properties as Hardox® 450, with a Brinell hardness of 425 - 475 HBW and a minimum Charpy impact test value of 27 J at -20°C (20 ft-lb at -4°F).
Hardox® HiAce is a true wear fighter, especially in acidic corrosive environments that threaten to eat away at your equipment. This corrosion-resistant steel plate helps to meet the challenges of corrosive wear environments found in municipal and industrial waste management, waste-to-energy plants, and in mining and process industries.
The extra-high tough steel for structural wear parts
Hardox® HiTuf is an abrasion-resistant plate with guaranteed impact toughness. With a nominal hardness of 350 HBW, it's a good choice for structural wear parts like thick cutting edges, demolition tools and rippers.
The all-around steel that resists wear and abrasion.
Hardox® 400 is an abrasion-resistant steel with a nominal hardness of 400 HBW. Hardox® 400 is an all-around wear resistant steel.
Thanks to its high toughness, good bendability and weldability, this steel can be used in structures with moderate wear.
The most popular abrasion-resistant steel with excellent structural properties.
Hardox® 450 is an abrasion-resistant steel with a nominal hardness of 450 HBW. Hardox® 450 combines good bendability and weldability with an option for guaranteed impact toughness (Hardox® 450 Tuf).
The products can be used in many different components and structures that are subject to wear. Hardox® 450, with an extra 50 Brinell hardness over our 400 grade, provides better dent and abrasion resistance as well as longer wear life, so you can achieve even greater savings.
The bendable, weldable and highly abrasion-resistant steel.
Hardox® 500 is a bendable and weldable abrasion-resistant steel, with a nominal hardness of 500 HBW. Suitable for applications that demand higher wear resistance.
Hardox® 500 increases payload and increases service life while maintaining good processability and toughness.
Hardox 500 Tuf
The new generation of wear plate for tipper trailers, mining and agriculture dump bodies, buckets, containers and other equipment exposed to heavy wear.
Hardox 500 Tuf wear plate is the latest upgrade in the Hardox® range. It delivers exceptional strength, hardness and toughness in a single wear plate, guaranteed.
And although it’s a newcomer to the Hardox® family, it has proved its worth around the world in tipper bodies, containers, mining tippers and trays, buckets of all kinds, agricultural equipment, liners and wear parts. Hardox 500 Tuf combines the best properties from Hardox 450 and Hardox 500. The result? A wear plate with no real competition on the market.
The extra hard and tough steel for extreme wear
At a nominal hardness of 600 HBW, Hardox® 600 has a uniquely high impact toughness.
Especially suited for extreme wear conditions, it can still be cut and welded, making it an excellent choice for high-performance applications.
Hardox® Extreme steel for extreme abrasion resistance
Hardox® Extreme is the world's hardest wear plate with a nominal hardness of 60 HRC (Rockwell) and typical hardness of 650-700 HBW.
Hardox® Extreme is an abrasion resistant steel with a nominal hardness of 60 HRC, intended for applications with extreme high demands on abrasion resistance. Typical applications is liner plates, etc.
Hardox® round bars
The all-round abrasion-resistant steel as round bar
Hardox® steel round bars are versatile, ready-to-use steel rods that combine strength, high toughness, good bendability and good weldability in an absolutely unique way. They deliver the same high performance you would expect from Hardox® steel across a variety of abrasion-resistant and wear-resistant applications.
Hardox® Tubes and Pipes
Abrasion-resistant steel pipe and tube for extreme performance and longer service life
As hard and tough as our wear plate, Hardox® tubes and pipes offer outstanding performance when you need both high abrasion resistance and a lighter product. These long-lasting, abrasion-resistant steel pipes and wear-resistant steel tubes at a hardness of 400 HBW or 500 HBW can replace costly wear products like hard-faced overlay pipe and high-chrome white iron. They also outperform and outlast mild steel pipe in extreme applications, such as in pipes that convey caustic, abrasive slurry.
The Hardox® wear plate that can take the heat
Hardox® HiTemp is a high-heat grade of Hardox® wear plate that provides a cost-efficient solution for wear resistance at high temperatures in the 300–500°C range (570–930°F).
Whereas traditional quenched and tempered wear-resistant steels lose hardness at higher temperatures, Hardox® HiTemp high-temperature steel delivers extreme wear resistance. Its properties are achieved by using high-quality raw material combined with a carefully controlled manufacturing process.
Hardox® HiTemp is delivered as 5–51 mm (0.197’’–2’’) plate. It can be cut, welded and machined using the same kind of machinery and technology as for conventional steel.
