Hardox® wear plate and Toolox® engineering & tool steel are quenched and tempered steel grades that are used by Hardox Wearparts centers to make customized wear parts that withstand both sliding wear and impact. For applications involving severe or extreme sliding wear and low to moderate impact, Duroxite® overlay products are also available.
One example of a successful Hardox® upgrade is in a concrete mixer scratcher used to clean walls. The previous cast iron scraper lasted only 1/4 of the time compared to the one made from Hardox® 600. Another example is concrete molds that lasted longer and provided a higher block quality.
