Welding a hardfacing layer on top of a hard and strong base plate has distinctive advantages. One is that it makes the Duroxite® plate highly resistant to deformation from dynamic or static forces acting on the plate.
Another advantage is the hardness of the steel base plate. It will give a wear safety margin compared to using a mild steel base plate, if the hardfacing layer should be worn through.
When impact testing of Duroxite® 101 and Duroxite® 201, the benefits of hard and tough Hardox® 450 as base plate are clearly demonstrated. Check out the short video, it shows the test and the high impact wear resistance of Duroxite® 101 and Duroxite® 201.
Duroxite® 101 is a chromium carbide overlay plate for sliding wear with Hardox® 450 as base plate. Duroxite® 101 is available in thicknesses between 6 and 32 mm.
Duroxite® 201 has complex carbides as the hardfacing layer and is suitable for severe sliding wear environments. Duroxite® 201 has Hardox® 450 as base plate and is available in thicknesses between 6 and 32 mm.
Duroxite® 101 and Duroxite® 201 are suitable for a wide range of wear applications and industries. The full Duroxite® portfolio contains several other products – plates, pipes, pins and welding consumables.
