What Results Do You Want From Your Wear Plate?

Whenever you have anxiety about your wear resistant steel application results, there is an opportunity to improve your performance.

Selecting the best wear resistant steel for your most demanding wear challenge is simply changing to a better alternative material.

People usually do not buy a different product unless they understand how the decision will improve their outcome.

Unfortunately, there are too many salespeople who try to bully you into buying their products.

JADCO will never do that.


Here is a perfect example of using the wrong product for the application. The patches with scratch marks from high stress abrasion were AR200, which is about as wear resistant as mild steel. The customer bought the cheapest priced material but quickly found out it was the most expensive choice when they had to replace it again within just a few months.

We take pride in turning data on wear steel and presenting you the essential information so you can make the best selection for your unique application.

Using this information, YOU CAN SELECT the best performing products for your specific wear applications.

The purpose of this blog is to make you aware of the products available to give you better results, than you currently experience.

This is why we have more long time customers of other wear resistant steel companies coming to JADCO and achieving better results. Isn’t it time you did too?

For over 40 years we have been helping our customers get superior results in their wear resistant installations.

We discovered there are many things about wear resistant steel THEY PREVIOUSLY DID NOT KNOW. It quickly became obvious to them WHAT THEY DID NOT KNOW, or were never told by the other company.

The goal for JADCO’s Wear Plate Wednesday blog posts are to provide you with the proper information you need to make an educated, informed decision when selecting the correct product for longer life than you get now.

To make certain you invest your time on things most important to you, we will ask you these 8 essential questions to help you get better results:
1. What wear resistant steel are you currently using?
2. How is it performing?
3. What have you used in the past and how did it perform?
4. What results would you like to improve in this application?
5. When do you need material on site?
6. What existing conditions do we need to understand about your ability to make this decision?
7. What is your target life expectancy?
8. How will you measure success? Is it Tons, Months or Years? Or do you use different criteria to determine you have improved your wear plate results?

Many people use AR400, AR450 or AR500 for Abrasion Resistant purposes.

A better solution for high abrasion wear applications is a Chrome Carbide Overlay plate. The CCO as it is often called is one or two layers of hardfacing applied to a mild steel base metal. This provides a far harder surface to resist abrasion than you find with the AR type steels.


Rather than tolerating a One-Size-Fits-All chrome carbide plate, JADCO’s family of Chromeweld CCO products offers the right tool to finally take control of your most challenging abrasion applications.

If your application is mostly sliding abrasion in chutes, Chromeweld 600 is an excellent choice.

If your CCO is wearing out due to high velocity, fine particle abrasion; look no further than Chromeweld Nb Plus.

Chromeweld Complex is for applications with high heat and corrosion issues along with abrasion.

If you have significant impact with sliding abrasion, look at Chromeweld Ti to better withstand heavy impact.

For ultra-aggressive abrasion, check out Chromeweld W with Tungsten carbides throughout the overlay.

If you need a super-smooth surface that is abrasion resistant Chromeweld Glide is your answer. Here we use Chromeweld 600 and grind it perfectly smooth.

Our entire Chromeweld family of CCO products is made at our headquarters in Harmony, PA, 30 minutes North of Pittsburgh.

As the leading manufacturer of CCO plate in the USA, you can depend on what you get from JADCO. Many steel distributors buy foreign CCO with little carbide content and far less quality control.

To make certain we control every aspect our Chromeweld overlay plate, JADCO has created our own clad machines.

For the last 40 years we have focused exclusively on delivering consistent, longer life for our customers.

Now you understand why JADCO delivers better results for our customers. We think differently by focusing only on your results.
