Nihard is a well-established white iron product alloyed with nickel and chromium to give significant abrasion and impact resistant properties. The structure of Nihard is composed of iron and chromium carbides, fixed in a matrix rendered martensitic by the nickel content. This structure allows Nihard to be utilised in abrasive and high impact conditions found throughout the mining and mineral processing industries.

Bradken Nihard products include billets and liner plates that can be made to the customers specification or supplied from our range of stock sizes. Bradken’s Nihard products can be custom designed to meet any situation regardless of any size and shape concerns. Bradken can also supply cut and shaped liners to be strategically placed on fixed plant equipment so that a unique wear package can be created, maximising wear life. This makes Nihard the perfect material for chutes, drop boxes, bin and hopper liners.
