Sandvik Construction launches new HX900 wear segments – bars buttons and runners. The company said HX900 wear segments maintain the original shape of vital equipment surfaces on for example crushers loader buckets chutes excavators rock box edges and on weld on hammer tips.
HX900 is a wear material combining the wear resistance of cemented carbide with the shock resistance ductility and forming capability of nodular iron. The company said this results in a hard material that stands well in tough environments and has long wear life. HX900 wear segments are perfect for areas on equipment that easily wear out.
A typical HX900 product has a wear resistance that is comparable with cemented carbide and a strength that is 80 to 90 percent of the strength of pure nodular iron. The wear resistance is generally five to 15 times higher than with common hardened steel Ni-hard hard facing or ceramics.
