altrix® steels are highly wear-resistant, multi-layer plates.

Strong combination

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.


Plate thickness

7–80 mm

Plate width

3,800 mm max.

Plate length

12,000 mm max.

Ordered weight

At least 10 tons per line item

Unit weight

6.3 tons max. per single plate

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.

Advantages of altrix®
  • Longer service life due to high degree of hardness
  • High resistance to fracture in the compound blank
  • Smooth surface, good yielding behavior and minimal caking
  • Best welding properties in delivered condition and in hardened condition
  • Simple fastening possibilities
