New Hardox wear plate is exceptionally tough

DUBAI, October 5, 2017

SSAB, a highly-specialised global steel company, has launched a new generation of Hardox wear plate for tipper bodies, buckets and containers.

The new Hardox 500 Tuf has exceptional strength, hardness and toughness in one and the same wear plate, the company said.

It combines the best properties from Hardox 450 and Hardox 500 and the result is a wear plate with no real competition on the market, it said.

Hardox 500 Tuf is tough enough to perform as a structural material in heavy-duty tipper bodies and buckets. Its performance is also proven in cold climates and freezing conditions. Superior wear and dent resistance allow for increased service life and the ability to withstand heavy impact, it said.

Typical working conditions include loading and unloading of heavy and sharp rocks in quarries and mines, handling large and heavy steel scrap, and in demolition when pieces of concrete with rebar are loaded or dropped into tippers.

Hardox 500 Tuf has gone through rigorous pre-launch testing in real-life applications, the company added.
 
Other product highlights include:
• 85-100 per cent longer estimated service life compared to Hardox 400;
• Guaranteed impact energy of 27 J at -20 deg C;

• Narrow Brinell hardness window of 475-505 HBW;
• Highly dent and crack resistant when hit by sharp and heavy objects

SSAB offers value-added products and services developed in close cooperation with its customers to create a stronger, lighter and more sustainable world. The company, which has employees in more than 50 countries, has production facilities in Sweden, Finland and the US. - TradeArabia News Service
