Hardox 500 Tuf, Hardox 500

We offer Wear Resistance steel plate , HARDOX 500 ( Sweden )AR 500 ( JAPAN ),  NM 500 ( CHINA ) is a union of toughness and hardness, giving it the exclusivity to be used in moderate wear areas. They are designed to weld quickly, looking good in appearance.

With Hardox® 500 Tuf steel in your equipment, you can get 10-15% more load capacity using thinner plate. Or, get 30% longer service life .




What is Hardox steel?

Hardox® 500 Tuf has a guaranteed hardness interval of 475-505 HBW for high wear resistance in the most challenging abrasive applications.  The toughness makes Hardox® 500 Tuf perform as a structural wear steel. It will keep your dump body in good shape, standing up to impact from large and heavy objects striking the plate. The high toughness with a guaranteed impact energy of 27 J at -20°C (20 ft-lb at -4°F), and a typical value of 45 J at -40°C (33 ft-lb at -40°F) gives you great performance in any climate – even better for equipment operating in freezing conditions.


What is Hardox steel used for?

Applications : Crushers, sieves, feeders, measuring pockets, skips, cutting edges, conveyors, buckets,knives, gears, sprockets, etc.


Hardox 500 Heat Treatment and Fabrication

HARDOX 500 has obtained its mechanical properties by quenching and when necessary by means of subsequent tempering. The properties of the delivery conditon can not be retained after exposed to service or preheating temperatures above 480°F (250°C).HARDOX 500 is not intended for further heat treatment.

For information concerning welding and fabrication, see our brochures on www.hardox.com or consult our Technical Customer Service.

Appropriate health and saftey precautions must be taken when welding, cutting,grinding or otherwise working on the product. Grinding, especially of primer coated plates, may produce dust with high particle concentration.


Is Hardox high carbon steel?
HARDOX 400, HARDOX 450 and HARDOX 500 have low carbon equivalent values (CEV) in relation to their high hardness and
good toughness.
What is Hardox made of?
Hardox Wear Plate is a very wear resistant steel plate, which is manufactured by SSAB and sold worldwide. As this steel wears very slowly even under heavy mechanical loads, it is used in many areas of industry.
