SSAB developed and
introduced Hardox as a pure wear plate. SSAB quickly realized that due to its
unique properties – the combination of
hardness and toughness, but also the combination of tensile strength and the
yield strength – Hardox is also
excellently suited for constructions and mechanical engineering.
Hardox is used especially in machines and machine parts where the weight plays
a decisive role and is reduced by the use of Hardox steel.
