Wear plates

ABRAPLATE®, ERGOTEM’s wear plate, is a unique chromium carbide overlay plate on a mild steel base.

Its excellent wear and abrasion resistant properties ensure extended service life, while reducing maintenance costs.

ABRAPLATE® is produced by a unique and versatile automatic bulk welding method, using the highest quality raw materials. Our fully automated production method and our quality control procedures secure a product with homogenous chemical analysis and hardness. The base material used is mainly, but not limited to S235JR steel. Other steel qualities including stainless steel, AR and others are used in specific applications according to customer needs.

ERGOTEM’s manufacturing, design and fabrication expertise ensures increased return on wear investment and thus peace of mind, due to constant high quality and reliability.

Plates and fabrications have excellent wear resistance performance and are easily installed on various types of equipment, extending their lifetime, while offering cost-efficient protection.
