AR500 abrasion resistant steel plate offers high surface hardness for excessive wear and high-impact applications.
A quenched & tempered, through-hardened, abrasion-resistant grade of steel plate. This specialized plate is designed for severe impact and abrasion applications. AR500F exhibits an optimal combination of hardness, abrasion resistance, formability, and weldability. The typical Brinell Hardness range is 470-530.
AR500 is a grade of abrasion resistant (AR) steel plate that is known for its hardness, toughness, and resistance to wear and tear. This grade has one of the highest levels of hardness out of the common AR steel plate grades – with a Brinell Hardness Number (BHN) of between 460-544 – and is typically used in high-wear and impact applications.
We sell our trademark material Amera-Braze 520 that is made to surpass AR500.
The hardness and toughness of AR500 steel plate make it extremely resistant to wear and impact. These properties make AR500 steel a durable, long-lasting material, which is crucial in applications that require materials that can withstand extreme wear.
The durability of AR500 also means that the material needs to be replaced less often than materials that have lower resistance to abrasion, which can lower material costs and prevent devastating equipment failures.
