June 25, 2021 6 min read
When Bruce Rock Engineering (BRE) got wind of SSAB’s new wear steel for corrosive environments, the company saw the potential and ordered plates straight from the mill in Sweden to start manufacturing its ﬁrst side dump trailer in Hardox® HiAce.
“We never hesitated for a minute before introducing Hardox® HiAce into a Super Quad mining trailer combination for iron ore transport,” says Brenton Verhoogt, Operations Manager at Bruce Rock Engineering. “When SSAB develops a new product, we know it’s been tested thoroughly before being launched. We were absolutely conﬁdent it would perform as Hardox® 450, with the added beneﬁt of being corrosion resistant.”
