Chromium Carbide Overlay - Wear and Abrasion Resistant Plate

In 1977 Alabama Hard Surfacing, Inc. pioneered the hard-surfacing of A-36 steel plate for wear parts. Today this process is called chromium carbide overlay plate. Super Wear® Plate has saved our customers money by minimizing downtime and parts usage.

Alabama Hard Surfacing, Inc.’s unique overlaying process produces one of the best chromium carbide plates in the world. Using a low carbon steel base plate, Super Wear® Plate can easily be formed and welded to most structural surfaces. Super Wear® Plate material gets its wear properties through its maximum carbide concentration and carbide alignment. That why Super Wear® Plate is the best chromium carbide overlay plate available on the market.

Super Wear Plate is manufactured in 5’ x 10' plates, as well as 6' x 10' plates with single overlay pass or double overlay pass and from 3/8” thick to 1” thick. Super Wear® Plate can be used for any kind of wear problems. Our customers tell us that Super Wear® Plate will last six times longer than AR plate or T-1 plate.
