Hardox® wear plate, Duroxite® Overlays, and Strenx® Structural

We process and fabricate Hardox® wear plates into custom-designed wear parts to meet our customers’ very specific needs. For extreme sliding wear challenges, we use Duroxite® overlay plates and hardfacing welding wire. And for strong, lightweight structural applications – ranging from trailer chassis to cranes – we use Strenx® performance steels.

Hardox® wear plate

Hardox® wear plate are famous for their hardness and toughness, enabling them to last longer – even several times longer – than other abrasion-resistant steels. Hardox® wear plate’s ability to withstand both abrasive wear and impacts makes it ideal for aggressive environments requiring very high abrasion resistance.

Note that in addition to wear parts made from wear plates, we offer Hardox® Round Bars (e.g., for grizzlies) and Hardox® Tubes and Pipes (for dredging, slurry lines, etc.).

Duroxite® overlays for extreme sliding wear

Duroxite® overlay plates are made by welding chromium carbides or complex carbides on top of a baseplate, creating excellent abrasion protection against sliding wear from exceptionally hard particles — including materials containing quartz. Unique to the overlay market, Duroxite® wear properties are guaranteed down to 75% of the hardfacing layer’s thickness, as opposed to just the surface of the layer. (The remaining 25% is the transition layer necessary to maintain good bonding to the baseplate.)

We can combine Hardox® wear plates with Duroxite® overlays. That way, you get Hardox® baseplate toughness combined with Duroxite® CCO extreme sliding wear protection.

Yet another alternative is for either our welders or your welders (true?) to use Duroxite® overlay welding wire for hardfacing parts subject to severe sliding wear.

Duroxite® products include wear plates, pipes, pins, and welding wire.


Strenx® performance steels: stronger, lighter, better

Stronger steels let you use thinner gauges, saving materials, weight, space, and fuel. With steels ranging from 600 to 1300 MPa tensile strengths, Strenx® performance steel excel in trailer, vehicle, and equipment subframes and structures.
