Tuffbraze


Tuffbraze is a high quality abrasion resistant liner plate engineered to provide excellent resistance to a variety of severe service abrasive applications where ductility and fabrication may be required.

Benefits of Tuffbraze

  • A special grade of 440 Brinell, not generic
  • Quench and tempered to improve machinability and reduce brittleness
  • Superior abrasion resistance
  • Special nickel added chemistry providing deep hardening, not surface only
  • High toughness for resistance to fracture, the most common wear problem, through:
    • Clean Steel Technology
    • Calcium treatment, promoting inclusion shape control
    • Silicon killing, fine grain practice and vacuum degassing
