Equipment made of Duroxite
Hardox® wear plate as a baseplate is available in Duroxite® 101 and Duroxite® 201.

Hardox® wear plate as a baseplate

The hardfacing layer of overlay products is always welded on other steel –the baseplate. Using Hardox® wear steel as baseplate in Duroxite® 101 and Duroxite® 201 makes for an outstanding composite material.

Hardox® wear plate has a unique combination of hardness, strength and toughness. The hardness gives a greater wear safety margin compared to using a mild steel baseplate if the hardfacing layer is worn down. The strength and toughness of Hardox® wear plate increase the overlay product’s resistance to impact forces.
