Domite Bucket Armour provides exceptionally longer life for extreme applications.

  • Conventionally used AR & QT steel parts (450-500 BHN) are designed for impact resistance and toughness while compromising Abrasion Resistance.
  • Individual Domite components consist of a cast, hardened steel alloy to provide the same impact resistance and toughness as conventional parts, only bonded with strategically placed Domite-Chrome-White-Iron (700 BHN) in high wear areas to provide maximum resistance in a completely new and unique method.

DOMITE COMPONENTS ARE DESIGNED TO:

  • Protect the Leading Edge of your Bucket
  • Support GET for Maximum Penetration
  • Provide external edge protection for High Durability
  • Less Maintenance required = Less Machine Downtime
  • Provides Robust base for back grading
  • Reduced hang up
  • Weight Reduction vs generic systems
  • Works with the bucket as a system to reduce wear
