Typical values for Toolox 44
Toolox 44 as heat resistant wear plate with the hardness 450 HB. At 500 °C, it retains about 80% of its original hardness and it is an alternative wear solution to Hardox that is developed specifically for applications subjected to high temperatures. Its unique properties make Toolox a perfect wear plate for metallurgical industries, cement industries, power plants and other areas where the application is exposed to both wear and heat.
Toolox 44 has vibration dampening properties. A research study carried out at KTH, Royal Institute of Technology, shows that cutting tools made from Toolox is more resistant against vibrations. Cutting tools in Toolox 44 allows deeper cuts with the same level of vibrations in the cutting operation and longer insert lifetime compared to traditional tool steels in the same cut level. This makes it possible to achieve higher material removal rate or better surface finish in the machined piece.
