An ideal wear solution

Chromium carbide (CrC) overlay plate from wear engineering specialist Rio-Carb is a great wear solution for a range of applications, from truck beds to dozer blades, shovel buckets, front-end loaders and dragline buckets.

The plate features a standard smooth surface with relief cracks, a ductile and workable backplate, a quality-controlled fusion zone, and a hard CrC overlay. It forms the basis of an engineered truck bed liner system that offers significant cost of ownership and return on investment
benefits for customers, Rio-Carb General Manager Sias Suurd explains.

Available in a hybrid liner package, the system greatly improves the wear life of truck beds, due to the fact that the plate wears down at a uniform rate, which means it is less maintenance-intensive, as well as increasing productivity dramatically.

Other advantages are that the system has been designed to reduce welding, and can be customised in terms of its overall weight.
