Similar to HC 1650 but with added Tungsten to increase the life cycle over HC 1650 and traditional chrome carbide wear plate.  Best suited for fixed plant, SEVERE WEAR ABRASION with LOW to MEDIUM IMPACT applications.

Overlay Material Type

The addition of the smaller Tungsten carbides fill the spaces between the primary Chromium carbide, reducing the inter-carbide spacing.  This provides greater protection for the matrix, resulting in extended service life of the wear plate.

Backing Plate

The standard A36 steel backing plate is ideal for multiple installations methods.

Metallurgical Testing Type

Complies to ASTM G65-04 dry sand rubber wheel test with less than 0.15 grams loss.

Thermal Expansion Relief Cracks

The HC 1600 series of wear resistance steel has inherent cracks due to the metallurgical structure of the high chrome.  These cracks are not structural cracks that will cause the plate to break.  Instead, these cracks are thermal expansion relief cracks to enhance bending and rolling under compression.  These thermal expansion relief joints are common in most ALL CCO to wear plates and are commonly visible.
