The Hardox HiTuf plate is the gold standard in impact toughness and wear-resistance. By increasing the steel hardness to 350 Brinell, the HiTuf increases wear life by about 10-20%. This nominal hardness of 350 HBW makes it an ideal choice for heavy section wear parts that are subjected to structural loads and require exceptional crack resistance. Intended applications include thick cutting edges, demolition tools, rippers, and maintenance work involving welding and thermal cutting.

The Benefits of HiTuf

When compared to 400 HBW steel, Hardox HiTuf demonstrates several benefits, including:

  • Improved weldability
  • Improved thermal cutting
  • Improved temperature stability
