AR500 Steel for repetitive wear

Knowing when to use AR500 over AR400 can be a little tricky.

AR500 steel 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.

High 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.
