Hensley Logo

Extreme protection for extreme applications. Laminite was developed in 1971 by Hensley PTY in Australia and is high chromium white iron bonded to a weldable mild steel backing. Laminite can be placed in high wear areas on any of your equipment subjected to high abrasion.

Hensley PTY Laminite

Hensley Laminite Montage
Laminite®, a unique wear material created by Hensley Industries Australia, is designed to reduce heavy equipment downtime in three ways.
  • It acts as the ultimate first defense against wear and abrasion when welded or bolted to your machine’s vulnerable surfaces.
  • It is the perfect quick replacement for worn and shattered wear parts out in the field.
  • It allows you to customize your wear protection.

A layering of white iron over mild steel, Laminite® is easy to weld with minimal preparation. If you choose, it can also be machined or stud-bolted. The mild steel backing cushions the white iron enabling it to withstand impact and abrasion even in the harshest of conditions.

This unique product was created in 1971 by Hensley Industries Australia (formerly Mason & Cox) for mining and quarry applications. Laminite®’s reputation for being the ultimate protection against impact and high abrasion extends into the steel, cement, coal, glass, sugar cane, and wood chip industries.
