PRESS RELEASE: Designed for tipper bodies, buckets and containers, it combines the best properties from Hardox 450 and Hardox 500.

Hardox 500 Tuf is tough enough to perform as a structural material in heavy-duty tipper bodies and buckets. Its performance is also proven in cold climates and freezing conditions. Superior wear and dent resistance allow for increased service life and the ability to withstand heavy impact. It has 85-100% longer estimated service life compared to Hardox 400.

Typical working conditions include loading and unloading of heavy and sharp rocks in quarries and mines, handling large and heavy steel scrap, and in demolition when pieces of concrete with rebar are loaded or dropped into tippers.
