Amera-Braze® 520

Amera-Braze 520 is a heat treated, abrasion resistant alloy steel plate and strip. With a combination of excellent toughness and high hardness, a reduction of dead weight can be achieved by using Amera-Braze 520 in half the thickness of the original chute, liner, or wear area.

Features And Advantages

  • Ultra-high wear resistance
  • Heat treated, quenched, and tempered to a high Brinell hardness
  • Good weldability
  • Depth hardened
  • Fine grain structure
  • High tensile strength
  • Corrosion resistance six times greater than mild steel
  • Reduces dead weight

Typical Mechanical Properties

Tensile strength psi 245,000
Yield point psi 230,000
Elongation in 2” 9%
Reduction of area 40%
Brinell hardness 480–520


Use low hydrogen high tensile electrodes: AWS specification E100XX, E110XX, or E120XX electrodes.

  • Preheat to 300°–500°F on plates over 1/2”in thickness.
