Wear Steel Blocks for the harshest, most abrasive operating conditions

HARDGUARD provides unparalleled protection in a wide array of applications.

Our Wear Bars are ideal for:

  • Buckets (excavator, loader, dragline, and face shovel)
  •  Crusher spider arm guards
  •  Discharge chutes
  •  Rock boxes
  •  Grizzly bars on feeders/shredder/grinding mills
  •  Sugarcane knife edges
  •  Adapters and attachments
  •  Dredging equipment
  •  Screen-feed distribution
  •  Hopper wear areas
Technical Advantages

To ensure that our chocky bars have finely dispersed microstructure and ultra-consistent properties when compared with the most competitive brands, we conduct a post-bonding heat treatment process. Our alloy hardness (63 HRC minimum) delivers maximum abrasion protection, while the steel backing plate absorbs high impact and facilitates ease of fitting and use.


Wear steel blocks can be custom-designed to exact applications. Each block is quality-tested and regularly subjected to thorough chemical, microstructure, visual, harness, ultrasonic, and destructive examinations.

HARDGUARD™ is available in the following forms:
  • HARDCHOC Chocky Bars
  • Standard HARDBAR
  • Shaped HARDBAR
  • Buttons and Donuts
  • HARDEDGE Knife Edges
