VAUTID wear plate


The world’s leading system specialists in wear protection have joined forces to bring a highly abrasion resistant, composite overlay wear plate to the Australian market.

Perfect for protecting larger areas or overcoming wear problems in self-supporting fabrications and plant components, VAUTID wear plates are ideal for applications across mining, quarrying, coal and power stations, bulk handling, cement and concrete recycling, agriculture and processing industries.

Designed for highly wear-resistant hardfacing, the VAUTID wear plate is an efficient solution that makes extended service lifetimes on high-wear surfaces a reality. Manufactured in Germany, VAUTID wear plates meet Australia’s Quality Management System ISO9001.
