Wear-resistant steels come in a variety of grades, each with a specific Brinell hardness value. The Brinell hardness test uses an indentation machine to test the force the material can withstand and the size of the indentation caused by the tool. This is in contrast to other types of steel that are graded based on toughness and tensile strength. Hardness is critical to limiting the effects of wear.
AR400 is the standard grade for wear-resistant steels, with 400 representing the Brinell hardness value of the material. AR450 and AR500 have hardness values of 450 and 500 respectively, which means they are harder than AR400. However, AR400 is more flexible and easier to form. All three types of steel are suitable for use in the manufacture of cement moulding and pouring equipment, conveying systems, and mining and excavation equipment.
Some grades make proprietary products such as MAS500 AR and Harkers 400. Cold rolled steel is labelled as cold rolled steel. Specialised varieties of steel are used for the same purposes as described above. If you're producing heavy machinery, a wear-resistant steel plate will ensure its durability.
