INERTIA™

Tactical Wear Plate

Features & Benefits

INERTIA™ Tactical Wear Plate is made of a specialized pre-hardened stainless steel metal providing a defense on several fronts. Its corrosion and heat-resistant properties inhibit electrolysis and chemical reaction even in high temperatures. INERTIA™ is wear-resistant and work hardens. Its highly compressed slick surface provides a low coefficient of friction. INERTIA™ Tactical Wear Plate is used strategically in all of your trouble spots where there is a need to keep your material flowing. It outperforms UHMW, mild steel, stainless steel, and many other lining materials. INERTIA’s™ mission is to propel your material forward and maintain its velocity thereby increasing your production time by reducing the frequency of your shutdowns.
