Uses and Benefits of Hardox 600 Wear Plate

Hardox 600 is renowned for being extra hard and durable for applications that cause extreme wear. Despite its hardness, it can nevertheless still be cut and welded, making it a highly favoured choice for a vast range of high-performance applications. However, it should be noted that unlike wear plates of lesser quality, Hardox 600 has been specially tailored for wear applications only.

Benefits of Hardox 600 include:

  • High wear resistance
  • Machinable
  • Provides easy access to steel plate
  • Weldable
  • Uniform properties

All these advantages combined result in a lower cost per service hour, making it the wear plate that makes sense for your project or workplace.

The Ultimate Wear Plate

Wear plates are graded according to abrasion resistance (AR), with plates that have an AR score of 400 or 450 being more susceptible to wear than plates with a higher grading. If your plates are subject to sliding wear from very hard abrasives, you’ll enjoy a much longer wear life from Hardox 600 wear plates than from plates with a lesser grading.

relative wear life

Hardox 600 has been designed to effectively replace plates of lesser hardness, as well as other wear-resistant products such as hard facing/overlay plates, white iron chromium casting and ceramics.
