Abrasion Resistant Steel Plate

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.

What are the Benefits of AR Steel? 

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.

Abrasion resistant steel plate is extremely durable and wear-resistant, defending well against scuffs and scratches. This type of steel works well in harsh applications, and also offers some impact resistance. Wear resistant steel plate will ultimately help extend the life of your applications and reduce your costs in the long-run.

Industrial AR Steel Plate

Abrasion resistant steel plate is commonly used in energy, industrial manufacturing, infrastructure, and more. Additional applications include:

  • Mining
  • Construction
  • Material Handling

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.
