Abrasion Resistant Steel Plate
Abrasion resistant (AR) steel plate is a high-carbon alloy steel designed specifically to have greater hardness properties than low-carbon steel.
Hardness typically comes at the expense of strength, making AR wear-resistant steel an ideal material for harsh, high-abrasion conditions, and not for structural applications.
Unlike many structural steels, AR is not governed by any ASTM code or spec and does not require specific chemical composition. In fact, the composition of AR steel varies from mill to mill. Instead, hardness – measured in Brinell units - is the most important factor for engineers when evaluating AR steel plate material. Learn more about abrasion resistant steel plate.
Leeco® Steel supplies AR steel plate in large and small volumes to designers and plant operators looking to extend the service life of critical components and reduce the weight of each unit put into service. The benefits of employing wear-resistant steel plate in applications involving impact and/or sliding contact with abrasive material are immense.
Due to the wide range of wear-resistant steel plate applications – from shooting targets to dump buckets – Leeco stores a large amount of AR steel plate at its distribution centers. Browse Leeco Steel’s abrasion resistant steel plate offerings and build a quote today.
