Smooth, crack free plate for increased wear resistance
DURAPLATE HiSPEED ® is a highly wear-resistant plate with a smooth and crack-free surface, specially designed to provide exceptional sliding properties compared to standard wear plates. This plate consists of fine chrome carbide particles distributed within a ductile matrix, granting it remarkable wear resistance across its entire thickness.
Thanks to the presence of these chrome carbide particles, DURAPLATE HiSPEED ® provides increased impact resistance. These intricate carbides are dispersed within a tough ductile matrix, ensuring optimal durability in demanding operating conditions.
This plate also stands out for its smooth surface, which significantly reduces the friction coefficient. As a result, this reduction can decrease clogging by up to 75%, a highly advantageous feature across various industrial applications.
In summary, DURAPLATE HiSPEED® is an advanced product that offers a unique combination of wear resistance, impact resistance, and improved sliding properties. It presents an ideal solution for applications where durability, performance, and efficiency are paramount.
Comparison between DURAPLATE HiSPEED® and a standard CCO cladded plate:
|Standard CCO Clad Plate|
|Rough and degraded surface||Effects of product adhesion, clogging|
|Weld beads||Mandatory to orient the plates for oscillated beads in order to limit wear.|
|Significant and uncontrolled dilution||Reduction in the plate’s effectiveness midway through its lifespan.|
|Significant cracking||High stress levels within the cladding, leading to spalling.|
|Smooth Surface||Low coefficient of friction, reduction in adhesion and clogging|
|No weld beads||Multidirectional anti-wear properties
No need for plate orientation
|Very low dilution with uniform fusion||Consistent hardness throughout the thickness, consistent wear resistance throughout the plate’s lifespan|
|Very low cracking||Minimal residual stress, ease of implementation|
Using Duraplate HiSPEED ®
Laser / Plasma Cutting : No constraints, standard parameters, no stress release during cutting.
Bending / Rolling: Cladding must always be on the inside of the bend radius to avoid tensile cracking when bending on the outside of the bend radius.
The guaranteed minimum bending radius is 15 times the thickness.
Welds should be protected using our DURCOR31WO wire.
