WearSpan® Advanced Composite Wearplate
The Wear-Resistant Alternative that Makes Steel and Chrome Carbide Wearplate Obsolete!
WearSpan® sets new standards of performance in the toughest industrial applications. Operating cost reductions of 25-90% are typical when WearSpan® is used to replace steels, chrome carbide overlays, rubber, and urethane.
HUDCO Industrial Products has manufactured wear resistant bulk handling and processing components since 1976. Based on our experience with wear resistant materials, including special steels, rubber, ceramics, basalt and plastics, we are confident that you will be very impressed with WearSpan®.
WearSpan® is a registered trademark of HUDCO Industrial Products, Inc. Certain materials, compositions, and manufacturing techniques used are proprietary and protected by United States Patent. Additional United States and foreign patents pending.
This chart compares the wear life of several liners to that of mild steel. Notice that WearSpan® lasts 50 times longer than mild steel.

Light Weight – WearSpan® is lightweight and easy to install by maintenance personnel.
Material Flow – The smooth laminar surface of WearSpan® provides the optimum sliding surface for material handling. Forget UHMW and other plastics that distort, buckle and wear out. The low coefficient of friction and dimensionally stable surface of WearSpan® will provide years of maintenance-free service.
Reduces Downtime – Outlasts all other wear resistant materials.
Corrosion Resistant – WearSpan® is resistant to the corrosive chemicals inherent to most material handling and processing operations.
Retrofit – The remarkable structural integrity of WearSpan® makes it ideal for direct retrofitting of worn out chutes and hoppers without expensive repairs.
Noise Reduction – WearSpan’s energy absorbing design dramatically reduces noise.
Pre-Engineered – WearSpan® is pre-engineered for your applications. No cutting, Nothing to inventory – No waste!
