AR500 plate is highly impact resistant, boasting 1.25x the tensile strength of AR400. This abrasion-resistant steel grade is ideal for parts where long-term and intense wear resistance is a top priority.
You won’t find better steel for your digging equipment, mining trucks, or shooting targets.
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.
