There are many levels of hardness of Hardox for Guide Plate, with being the most frequent. It has a low alloy content and, as a result, is less prone to cracking, especially provided a few criteria are followed. Hardox Guide Plate may be welded using 7018 electrodes or normal mild steel MIG wire (SG2), however thick portions will require preheat. Hardox Plates combine through-hardness and tensile strength with unequaled fire cutting, framing, and welding properties. With an average BHN hardness of 360 – 440, this easy-to-use grade gives the end client additional flexibility in shape and production.
Hardox Guide Plates are appropriate for applications that demand a high level of scraped area resistance, for example, pail sections, development gear, and wear plates used in a variety of business enterprises, like mining, ranger service, and development.
These Hardox Guide Plates‘ amazing qualities are created via hardening and tempering, yet they might be lost if treated incorrectly. Along these lines, when bending, welding, cutting, and crushing, precautions and defense measures must be implemented.
