The new generation of wear plate for tipper trailers, mining and agriculture dump bodies, buckets, containers and other equipment exposed to heavy wear.
Hardox 500 Tuf wear plate is the latest upgrade in the Hardox® range. It delivers exceptional strength, hardness and toughness in a single wear plate, guaranteed.
And although it’s a newcomer to the Hardox® family, it has proved its worth around the world in tipper bodies, containers, mining tippers and trays, buckets of all kinds, agricultural equipment, liners and wear parts. Hardox 500 Tuf combines the best properties from Hardox 450 and Hardox 500. The result? A wear plate with no real competition on the market.
Tippers load more and last longer with Hardox® 500 Tuf
A tipper body made of Hardox® 500 Tuf is lighter and more durable due to its unique combination of hardness and toughness. Hardox® 500 Tuf lets you design low-weight bodies with the wear-resistant qualities of much heavier structures.
Not only does it deliver high wear resistance – Hardox® 500 Tuf is also tough enough to perform as a structural wear plate in heavy-duty tipper and truck bodies. This offers new opportunities for reducing or eliminating supporting structures, allowing Hardox® 500 Tuf to take the load instead. A tipper body without reinforcing beams is stronger and lighter, and saves a lot of costly welding. A lower tare weight of the body means more payload, less fuel per transported ton and fewer trips on the road.
Increase payload and service life for buckets, dippers and attachments in Hardox® 500 Tuf
A bucket or attachment made in Hardox® 500 Tuf combines extreme hardness and toughness with excellent welding and machining properties. Thanks to the high wear resistance of Hardox® 500 Tuf, buckets and other attachments last longer. This helps you avoid costly repairs, rebuilds and parts replacement.Compared to traditional buckets with heavy wear packages, a bucket or dipper made in Hardox® 500 Tuf is wear resistant, tough and gives a longer service life with fewer add-on wear parts. Achieve 30–50% longer service life over Hardox® 450, and 85–100% longer service life compared to a 400 Brinell steel or other generic AR steel.
