Hardox 500 Tuf is the latest upgrade in the Hardox range. It delivers high strength, extreme hardness and guaranteed toughness in one and the same wear plate.
Hardox 500 Tuf combines the best properties from the Hardox 450 and Hardox 500 grades. The result is a wear plate with no real competition on the market. It has the toughness necessary to perform as a structural material in heavy-duty tipper bodies, containers and buckets. It also works in freezing conditions as the impact energy values indicate.
Superior wear and dent resistance gives extended service life and the ability to endure heavy impact. Typical working conditions include loading and unloading of heavy and sharp rocks in quarries and mines, handling large and heavy steel scrap, and in demolition when pieces of concrete with rebar are loaded or dropped into tippers.
