The new Duroxite 300 overlay plate has been developed by SSAB to provide long service life in extreme wet and dry sliding wear environments. Compared to traditional tungsten carbide overlay, Duroxite 300 delivers high resistance to abrasive wear but at a more competitive cost, according to the manufacturer.
The overlay material used for Duroxite 300 contains a uniquely high volume of an ultra-fine complex borocarbide phase. The grain size is refined down to 500 nm, which makes the borocarbides approximately 200 times finer than traditional chromium carbides.
The results are outstanding wear performance and also increased impact resistance. Compared to traditional chromium carbide overlay plates, Duroxite 300 can absorb more impact energy.
The high wear resistance of the borocarbides allows for a reduced overlay thickness compared to traditional overlays. This results in a lighter product with increased service life. And like the other Duroxite plate products, Duroxite 300 maintains a consistent wear resistance from the surface down to 75 percent of the overlay.
Duroxite 300 is the latest addition to the broad range of Duroxite overlay products available from Hardox Wearparts, the world’s leading provider of wear parts and services. Also on display at AGG1 are a wide range of other wear-resistant applications and parts from Hardox Wearparts.
Hardox Wearparts is a worldwide network of service centers providing wear parts and wear solutions for optimized productivity and service life. Hardox Wearparts is a part of SSAB, the manufacturer of Hardox wear plate. Duroxite 300 is produced in the United States and currently available in North and South America.
