Wear Resistant Plate

Hardness up to 62 Rockwell

A J Specialist Welding Wear Plate is a highly resistant long life wear plate which has proved extremely successful in reducing maintenance costs and component replacements.

A J Specialist Welding Wear Plate can be supplied in standard strip and plates or manufactured to your individual requirements with holes etc. AJS Wear Plate can be supplied in standard plate sizes 3000mm x 1500mm in thickness or to suit your specific requirements.

A J Specialist Welding Wear Plate consists of a plate of plain carbon steel which has been clad at our Coalville works with a high chrome carbide deposit. The bonding between the base material and cladding is a true mechanical bond and therefore separation at the interface is virtually impossible. The abrasion resistance of A J Specialist Welding Wear Plate obviously varies with different applications but life increases of 4 to 40 times can normally be expected. We have in house facilities to roll and press A J Specialist Welding Wear Plate to customers requirements. Computer controlled Plasma cutting equipment enables A J Specialist Welding to produce profiles to customers needs in singles or multiples. We can also record details for analysis to anticipate your future requirements.

Due to the extreme hardness of the Chrome Carbide there are numerous surface stress relieving cracks on every square foot of the A J Specialist Welding Wear Plate. These are both necessary and desirable.
