Swedish steel manufacturer SSAB has introduced the new-generation Hardox 500 Tuf wear plate for buckets, containers and tipper bodies.
SSAB says the Hardox 500 Tuf plate has exceptional strength, hardness and toughness and offers up to double the service life when compared with Hardox 400.
The wear plate is suitable as structural material in heavy-duty tipper bodies and buckets. The steel can also handle regular work loading and unloading heavy and sharp rocks, handling large and heavy scrap steel and in demolition work where pieces of concrete with rebar are dropped into tippers.
The plate is available in thicknesses of between 4-25mm, and in widths up to 3350mm and lengths up to 14,630mm.
