CHROMAX wear plate by DEMECH is a composite plate, manufactured by a unique process in which a uniform layer of highly wear resistant carbides is deposited on a carbon steel base. Very hard carbides are suspended in a tough wear resistant matrix. It is the concentration and uniform distribution of carbide structure that gives CHROMAX wear plate its unique wear resistant and life prolonging characteristics.
The process involves applying specially and accurately blended powders to the area to be overlaid by forming an arc, and covering the arc by flux which avoids the oxidation of the deposits.
The bond between the mild steel base and the overlay is of very high strength and resists repeated and prolonged impact loads and the overlaid deposit offers inequable resistance to low and high stress abrasion.
CHROMAX wear plate is very cost effective giving extremely long life reducing maintenance, downtime, increasing productivity and efficiency, hence extensively used for sinter screens, chute liners, hoppers, mill liners etc.
