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.
