In sliding wear, abrasive bodies such as aggregate rocks are free to slide and roll. By selecting a harder Hardox grade, service life can be improved considerably.

In impact wear, the aggregate rocks hit the surface of the wear component at various angles. A harder grade of Hardox will deliver a longer service life here as well.

With squeezing wear, the improvement in service life of wear components is more difficult to quantify. However, an increased Hardox plate hardness often improves the service life.
