Duaplate DX offers a unique and superior weld overlay product that outperforms
conventional Chromium Carbide Overlays (CCO). Bradken has employed the
latest digital technology in order to create an overlay with a patented chemical
composition that is incredibly resistant to abrasion and can still be used in moderate impact applications. The phenomenal properties of Duaplate DX make it ideal for use in mass sensitive applications that require a light-weight, high performance liner material. Available in large sheet sizes and custom shapes, Duaplate DX can be cut and formed to suit customer requirements.
Duaplate DX is manufactured by fusing a specially formulated powder to a steel base plate. This creates a bi-metallic material with a layer of high performance abrasion resistant overlay combined with a ductile steel base to accommodate
forming and welding.
The unique microstructure of Duaplate® DX consists of a mixture of extremely fine carbides and borides that are surrounded by a predominantly martensitic matrix material. These incredibly hard carbides and borides are approximately 10x smaller than traditional carbides in CCOs, which dramatically increases resistance to wear and further improves impact performance.
Field trials have confirmed that Duaplate DX improves asset life by 1.8-2.5 times compared to standard CCO plates of the same thickness. Bradken’s Duaplate DX can achieve the same wear life with a thinner, lighter liner, opening opportunity to improve manual handling safety during liner change outs.
