Tuffplate™ is one of our premium welded, composite overlay products. It comprises a low carbon construction steel base, hardfaced with an alloy containing extremely hard, finely dispersed titanium carbides in a martensitic matrix with a high chromium content. This unique plate breaches the gap that previously existed where suppliers could either completely address abrasion or impact, but not both phenomena with a single wear plate. In applications where both impact and abrasion are prominent wear problems, Tuffplate™, has proven itself as an excellent product.
We manufacture Tuffplate™ using Welding Alloys-developed cored welding wire, proven welding procedures and stringent quality assurance measures. This allows the production of a welded overlay with homogeneous chemistry, resulting in even distribution of the titanium and chromium carbide particles resulting in a stable, through-thickness wear rate. Complimentary to our range of plate products, we also provide design and fabrication services throughout our global network of Integra™ service centres.
