What is Hardox 550?

Hardox 550 is a Q&T martensitic wearplate for applications that demand high resistance to abrasion, such as hammers, shredders and cutters for the recycling industry.

The wear plate significantly extends service life, but not at the expense of crack integrity, and cuts maintenance costs.
