Duroxite® fights wear, guaranteed

Duroxite® comes with guarantees that are unique for the overlay market. Duroxite® overlay products are delivered with an overlay thickness guaranteed within +10%. When you order ¼” overlay on ¼” base plate, you are guaranteed an overlay thickness of ¼” within +10%. This is consistent throughout the plate and from plate to plate.  

Further, consistent wear properties are guaranteed throughout the plate down to 75% of the overlay thickness as opposed to just the surface of the overlay. The remaining 25% of overlay is the transition layer necessary to maintain good bonding to the base plate.

Duroxite guarantees

Duroxite® in fabrication

Duroxite® is designed to be hard, without giving you a hard time in the workshop.
Excellent formability

Duroxite® in fabrication

Duroxite weldingDuroxite® is designed to be hard without giving you a hard time in the workshop. No special equipment is needed to install Duroxite®. Welding, bolting and stud welding are the common methods for installing Duroxite® wear parts or overlay plate onto your equipment. For more information on installation, see Duroxite® brochure.

One of Duroxite®’s key benefits is its excellent formability due to a staggered cracking pattern on the overlay surface. This simplifies bending of the plate and ensures a smooth flow of the processed materials
