Mechanical Properties
Thickness
(mm)
Hardness 1) (HBW)
8.0 - 65.0 525 - 575

1) Brinell hardness, HBW, according to EN ISO 6506-1, on a milled surface 0.5 – 3 mm below surface. At least one test specimen per heat and 40 tons.

The nominal thickness of supplied plates will not deviate more than +/- 15 mm from the thickness of the test specimen used for hardness testing.

Hardox is through-hardened. Minimum core hardness is 90 % of the guaranteed minimum surface hardness.
