Laser-cut AR500 steel from SendCutSend

AR500 Steel

Starting from $29

The second of our two abrasion-resistant grade steels, AR500 is our choice for projects exposed to excessive wear that can also benefit from solid, but lesser, impact resistance than AR400.

You won’t find better steel for your quarry equipment, mining trucks, or shooting targets.

AR500 Steel for repetitive wear

Used in many of the same applications, knowing when to use AR500 over AR400 can be a little tricky, but thankfully, we’re here to help you sort that out if you need it.

You see, our AR500 is built to withstand the same gradual abrasion over extended periods of time, making it well suited for large machinery that endures constant wear. Like its AR counterparts, it also offers outstanding economical value by requiring little maintenance.

Additionally, through-hardness is also present in this material, which means that as the wearing action begins to remove some of the surface layer, the quality of abrasion resistance remains constant. Making sure that you spend more time getting what you care about done, instead of checking after your equipment. 

If you’re still not sure about its durability, it’s worth noting that this metal is used in ballistic vests and robotic armor plating. Yeah, AR500 is that tough.
