The hardness of HARDOX® reduces the possibility of wear, as the edges, where the wear of the material starts, are not affected. It is found throughout its thickness and not just on the surface. Hardness is not an obstacle to forming this particular steel. It exists in many different variations, depending on the hardness it has, so that it is consistent with each different use.
The unbreakability of HARDOX® is what differentiates it from common anti-friction steels. It enables crimping, shaping and welding, without causing any cracking or breaking of the material.In extreme environments where hardware failure can have unpredictable and costly consequences, HARDOX® helps minimize risk.The advantages of HARDOX®’s unbreakability are that it can take strong impacts without deforming and can resist cracking if subjected to plastic deformation.
The HARDOX® plate is designed to provide excellent performance and long life. You can maximize both by choosing the right plate for the application depending on its requirements.At the same time, it offers a reduction in the weight of applications by reducing the thickness of the material that construction now requires.
