Hardox HiTemp : Hardox HiTemp wear-resistant steel from SSAB can handle temperature’s over 500 degrees Hardox HiTemp

Swedish steel processor SSAB has added Hardox HiTemp steel to its existing lineup of Hardox steel for wear plates and wear parts. HiTemp has been engineered to retain its hardness under high temperatures.

Wear-resistant steel is generally used to make protective plates that are attached to those parts of a machine that experience mechanical wear. Specific mechanical parts that will be used in heavy-wear applications can also be manufactured from this type of steel.

Hardox steel is a wear-resistant material designed for use in wear plates and wear parts and has been manufactured by SSAB for over 40 years. Traditional quenched and tempered steel wear plates tend to experience a loss of hardness when exposed to high temperatures (in the 300-500 degrees Celcius range).

Up until now solutions for high-temperature applications have been much more costly and complicated to work with.

SSAB says its Hardox HiTemp steel is made using high quality raw materials in combination with a ‘carefully controlled manufacturing process’.

Hardox HiTemp behaves in the same way as other Hardox steel, is delivered as 5-51mm plate and can be cut, welded, machined and cold formed by the same type of machinery.
