AR500 Steel Plate, Sheet, & Coil | IBC

AR500 steel is a kind of alloy steel with high hardness and high wear resistance. Its hardness can reach 500 Brinell, thanks to the elements it contains such as carbon, manganese, silicon, and added alloying elements such as chromium and nickel. These elements make this steel not only excellent wear resistance, but also high corrosion resistance.

Performance Profile

First of all, the surface hardness of AR500 steel is excellent. And its hardness range is usually between 470 and 540 BHN, which gives it extremely strong wear resistance. As a result, it shows good durability even in high-wear applications, such as mining equipment and concrete handling.

Second, this steel not only has high hardness, but also has excellent impact resistance. It can withstand high impact stresses even at extremely low temperatures, thus maintaining its structural integrity and stability. This property makes it promising for a wide range of applications in environments that need to withstand high impact forces, such as mining and construction.

In addition, its alloying element composition also provides strong support for its performance. In addition to containing basic elements such as carbon, manganese and silicon. It also adds alloying elements such as chromium and nickel, the presence of which further improves the wear and corrosion resistance of the steel. This enables the steel to maintain its stable performance in harsh environments and extend its service life.

Application of AR500 Steel

First, in the mining sector, the high wear and impact resistance of AR500 steel makes it an ideal material for manufacturing mining equipment. Mining equipment is often subjected to the impact and wear of ore during operation. It can effectively resist these effects and extend the service life of the equipment.

Secondly, the construction field is also one of its important application areas. In building construction, it is often necessary to deal with hard materials such as concrete, which requires that the materials used must have good wear resistance. This type of steel just meets this need and can be used to make concrete treatment equipment, construction machinery, etc.

In addition, it is widely used in the field of metallurgy. In the metallurgical production process, the equipment is often affected by high temperature, high pressure and corrosive environment, so the materials used are required to have extremely high heat resistance, pressure resistance and corrosion resistance. Its characteristics enable it to meet these requirements and can be used to manufacture key components of metallurgical equipment.

In addition to the above fields, this steel can also be used in the manufacture of cutting knives, abrasive sandblasters and other equipment, as well as in armor applications, truck plows and so on.
