Hardox is a very wear-resistant sheet steel. Hardox
is manufactured and exported worldwide by the Swedish company SSAB, which
developed the first modern wear-resistant sheet in 1974. As this steel wears
slowly, even under large mechanical loads, Hardox is also called wear plate.
This fact is especially interesting for companies that quarry gravel and sand
as, for example, excavator buckets or dump truck bodies made from HARDOX last
This material is characterised by its uniform evenness, high hardness and high strength. The weight of the constructions produced is reduced significantly. This is possible, because the material’s high strength enables thinner metal sheets to be used. HARDOX does not lose its impact resistance, even at low temperatures. As these sheets and plates have very good welding and machining properties, subsequent repairs of wearing parts is not a problem.
