Hardox is a brand of wear-resistant steel plates produced by SSAB (Swedish Steel Corporation). These plates are made from a high-strength, abrasion-resistant alloy steel and are available in various thicknesses and dimensions. They are commonly used in applications such as truck beds, construction and mining equipment, and in the construction of buildings and bridges.
Hardox plates are known for their exceptional durability and resistance to wear and tear, as well as their ability to withstand high impact and abrasion. They are often used in harsh environments where other types of steel would quickly wear out or become damaged. The steel is also known for its weldability and good cold-forming properties.
Hardox plates are available in different grades such as Hardox 400, Hardox 450, Hardox 500, Hardox 550, Hardox 600. Each grade has a different level of hardness and toughness. The higher the number, the harder and tougher the plate is.
