Cutting Edges manufactures a range of wear plates designed to
provide superior performance and perform cost-effectively in a
variety of applications and operating conditions: CC1500, CC1200
CC1500 Chromium Carbide Wearplate
Reduce your operating costs with the CC1500 chromium carbide
The CC1500 Wearplate will outlast quenched and tempered steels by
up to 12 times and white iron by up to 4 times. It maintains the
efficiency of chutes, bins, hoppers, buckets and other material
handling equipment because it is quickly polished by abrading
materials. This produces a surface with a low coefficient of
friction, which lessens the likelihood of hang-ups.
These properties render this product suitable for use under extreme
operating conditions where the cost of downtime far outweighs the
initial expenditure or the capital outlay of replacement.
Where handling or weight factor are a consideration, the CC1500
Wearplate offers substantial weight savings for the same wearlife
as heat treated alloy steels or white irons.
CC1500 is a highly effective wear resistant plate which is
manufactured using a submerged arc welding process whereby
extremely hard chromium carbides are deposited as an overlay into a
mild steel or chromium carbide backing plate.
The final weld deposit, or matrix, is hard but very tough and gives
excellent wear and impact resistance.

The plate may be welded into position or alternatively may be fixed
using plow bolts or stud bolts.
Its small bead weld deposit allows for easy formability around
radiused sections and is also responsible for its remarkable impact
CC1200 Chromium Carbide Wearplate
The CC1200 wearplate complements CC1500 wearplate.
It has different wear characteristics to CC1500, more suited to
certain applications, while maintaining the same high quality
Like CC1500, CC1200 wearplate is a duplex products consisting of
Chromium primary carbides in a carbide bearing austenitic alloy,
welded onto a shock absorbing mild steel base.
Both are produced using a submerged arc welding process that
delivers a highly uniform and smooth layer that is well suited to
the flow of abrasive materials.
The unique microstructure of CC1200 also ensures the product
performs under high impact conditions.”
Typical applications for CC1200 are:
- Liner plates on mobile machines, including dump truck liners
- Fixed plant liners, chutes, screens, and deflector plates
- High speed conveyor chutes, fan blades, and feeder bins
- Various diameter abrasive media pipes
- Bucket protection and skid plates.
Both CC1200 wearplate and CC1500 wearplate come in a variety of
sizes and thicknesses and can be cut to shape for custom uses.
The factory also produces finished products to customer
CTC2000 Tungsten Carbide Wearplate
CTC2000 is a tungsten carbide wearplate designed to provide superior performance in the most demanding conditions.
It is a modified duplex wearplate which contains significant
additions (30-35%) of tungsten carbide.
Like CC1500 and CC1200 it is a duplex material composed of a
chromium -tungsten carbide bearing austenitic alloy welded into a
mild steel base. In addition to these complex carbides some
undissolved tungsten carbide particles are dispersed throughout the
CTC2000 was developed in conjunction with the OK Tedi Reliability
Engineering Team, to improve wear characteristics in chutes.
Detailed analysis of the ore flow characteristics resulted in the
development of CTC2000. The new product was evaluated in closely
monitored, detailed trials involving a number of alternative
products. The CTC2000 delivered an increase in life of
approximately 129 % over the benchmark product. In addition,
operations were able to utilise a LIGHTER plate than previously

CC1500 gives excellent service as liners for bulldozer moldboards,
front end loader buckets, grader moldboards, excavator and dragline
buckets as well as dump truck trays.
