Rhino-Klad™

Clad Plate – Chromium Carbide Overlay

Rhino-Klad is a chromium carbide clad wear plate. This 600BHN wear resistant plate provides excellent service in extreme abrasion and impact maintenance applications. The process provides a chromium carbide overlay metal that is fusion bonded to high quality plate. Bond cannot separate under abrasion or shock. Cladding plate produces natural stress relief cracks. These relief cracks are only limited to the overlay and do not extend to the base plate. These cracks provide a certain amount of extended wear life in abrasion and impact applications by relieving stresses in the plate.

As deposited, the overlay has a developed hardness of Rockwell “C” 60/62 and offers an unmatched abrasive resistance for various heavy industrial applications. The overlay deposit is usually one or two layers. Bead widths vary according to the method of the manufacturing. Call or email us for a quote.

Key Features

Excellent Abrasion Resistance – up to 10x times the life vs. heat treated plate and 20x times that of carbon steel plate.

High Impact Resistance – offers significant resistance to impact loads where commercial wear plates such as AR400 and AR500 have failed to stand up.

Weldable – can be welded using low hydrogen welding rod

Available Sizes

Please contact our office for all inquiries. Standard sizes range in nominal thickness from 3/8″ to 1″ with an overlay thickness of 1/8″ to 3/8″. We can also furnish double and triple overlays upon request and special fabricated parts right to your specifications.
