altrix® multi-layer plates are composite materials and are manufactured as two- or three-layer plates by means of a roll-clad method developed in-house. The base material guarantees high toughness and good weldability. The cladding material offers a high degree of hardness and wear resistance in hardened condition.
Areas of application
Typical applications of altrix® multi-layer plates include dredging pipes, plow moldboards, mill housing wear plates, mold manufacturing, paddles in log washers, chutes, slides and transfer components in the sand, gravel and cement-making industries and cladding in rock crushers.
The standard base material of altrix® multi-layer plates is S235 in accordance with EN 10025-2. The cladding material is 2842 (altrix 90). A hardness value of up to 66 HRC is achievable in hardened condition. altrix® plates are delivered in as-rolled condition.

In consideration of the favoured wear resistance and resistance to fracture the correct layer thicknesses shall be selected. A layer thickness ratio of 50 % to 50 % is typical between the cladding and base material for two layers and 33-34-33 % (hard-tough-hard) for three-layer plates.
