AR500 abrasion resistant steel plate is a high surface hardness metal which is excellent for excessive wear and high-impact applications.This steel is commonly used for armor plating and targets. If you're looking for a metal with excellent resistance to slide wear and abrasion, look no further.
The hardness range of our AR500 is 470/540 BHN with a nominal hardness of 500 BHN. Our wear plate products are typically designed for wear and liner applications. We do not recommend AR500 for use in self-supporting structures or lifting devices. This metal can withstand high-impact stresses, even at extremely low temperatures.
