AR500 / 500F Steel Plate

AR500F steel plate is a premium abrasion resistant steel plate, heat treated to exhibit through-hardening, improved forming and welding capabilities. With a typical BHN of 460 – 544, the protection AR500F provides in wear applications is exceptional. Used in the manufacture of mining equipment, the truck-trailer industry and the concrete / aggregate industry, AR500F steel possesses excellent resistance to slide wear, rub wear and heavy wear. It can also withstand high impact stresses, even at extremely low temperatures. With its ability to withstand high impact stress, AR500 has been widely popular for its uses in body armor and ballistic plates.

Each producing mill has its own proprietary chemical composition and heat-treating process for AR 500F. Leeco Steel is happy to provide the mill specific specifications – contact  us.
