AR500 Grade High Wear Abrasion-Resistant Plate

Specifically designed for abrasion and wear resistance, AR500 steel is a high-carbon alloy steel with a lower hardness of 477 – 534 BHN. The grade for abrasion resistant steel is determined on hardness instead of grain structure. Widely used for high abrasion applications where durability is a critical factor, AR500 is the preferred choice for cladding, flooring, and equipment housings across the industrial landscape. Especially useful for applications where impact and sliding forces are frequent, AR500 is recommended for liners in mining operations, and material handling equipment like dump trucks, material transfer chutes, storage bins, buckets, and hoppers. Some specialized uses include fan blades, wear straps, conveyor liners, teeth caps and others. Metals USA carries a full line of AR500 abrasion resistant steel in a wide range of plate thicknesses.
