What Is HARDOX® Wearplate?

Bending of a Hardox Wear Plate

HARDOX® Wearplate is a wear-resistant steel, manufactured and exported worldwide by SSAB, a highly specialized global steel company that develops high-strength steels for better performance and sustainability. HARDOX® Wearplate components feature high-strength steel construction that offers a proprietary combination of hardness and toughness, rendering them exceptionally wear and impact resistant. In addition to their hardness and toughness, HARDOX® Wearplate products also demonstrate several other unique performance characteristics, including:

  • Abrasion resistance
  • Up to four times the service life of mild steel components
  • Reliability and consistency of the part shape
  • Excellent material strength and structural integrity
  • Fabrication versatility and machinability
  • Suitability for surface finishing (e.g., priming and painting)

These qualities make them ideal for a variety of extreme and rugged industrial applications. Regardless of the grade of the wear plate employed, the material maximizes performance and service life in any application.

Using HARDOX® Wearplate products provides several benefits to industrial companies, such as:

  • Durability. The high strength and wear resistance characteristic of HARDOX® Wearplate products allows them to withstand greater impact and wear stress.
  • Ease of use. HARDOX® Wearplate typically maintains it’s properties for consistent, reliable results.
  • Reduced costs. By bearing the majority of the load, HARDOX® Wearplate protects other components and equipment from damage during operation, maximizing their performance levels and extending their overall service life. These qualities allow facilities to increase their productivity while decreasing the cost of operation, maintenance, and repair. Some applications experience extended service life thanks to the use of HARDOX® Wearplate.
  • Reduced weight. Because of the strength offered by HARDOX® Wearplate, fabricators can in some cases use thinner material and still achieve the same service life. This allows companies to reduce the weight of their equipment without sacrificing performance.
