Tuffbraze 600
Baldwin International has developed Tuffbraze 600 for industrial applications requiring the highest levels of strength and fatigue resistance. Tuffbraze 600 features a surface hardness of 600BHN (nominal - typical range is 565-625BHN) over a 500 BHN base (typical range is 465-515BHN). An ideal replacement for overlay, this wear plate provides the ultimate in penetration resistance, especially in applications where surfaces are being deteriorated by hard, sharp objects.
  • Does not exhibit brittleness often associated with high-hardness alloys
  • Work-hardens in service due to rich chemistry alloy
  • Special chemistry alloy steel throughout:
    • Does not have the weak mild steel base of overlay
    • Clean, consistent grain structure
  •  More economical than overlay or ceramics

Benefits of Tuffbraze 600


  • Exceptional in high-impact industrial applications requiring surface hardness.
  • Outlasts even the best abrasion-resistant steels in the market, decreasing maintenance costs, while providing an economical substitute for overlay and ceramic type materials in many applications.
  • American-made.
  • Custom chemistry and machining processes yield the highest levels of hardness without the brittleness found in heat-treated generic wear plates.
  • Ideal in a variety of applications, including: bucket liners, chutes, cones, liner plates, hoppers, impact plates, shot and sand blast equipment, target plates, truck body liners, etc.
  • Tuffbraze 600 is available in various stock sizes and can be machined-to-order per your specifications.
