AR200 Steel Plate

IBC Metal Group produce & export AR200 Steel Plate to all over the world. It is one kind of Wear Resistant Steel Plates Sheets. We also called it Abrasion Resistant Steel Plates Sheets, High Carbon Abrasive Resistant Steel Plates Sheets or Wear Plates Sheets. So it short for AR200. AR200 steel plate is a carbon-manganese steel product with a nominal hardness of 200 Brinell (HBW). It intended for moderate wear applications. AR200 is available as mill plate, temper leveled plate or as coils. AR200 not intended for structural applications.

A514 AR200 abrasion resistant steel plate is a good candidate for some processing techniques. This material is characterized by a smooth, blue-grey-red finish with a hardened surface and while not a good candidate for forming and machining AR200 plate is suitable for welding. Intended for moderate wear applications, common uses include contact surfaces, hoppers, cement mixer drums and fins, and screw conveyors. ASTM A514 is the standard specification for high yield, quenched and tempered alloy steel plate.

What is Abrasion Resistant Steel Plate

Abrasion resistant (AR) steel plate, 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 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.

Mechanical Properties of AR200 Steel Plate

AR200 has a nominal hardness of 200 HBW. It is produced to a specified chemical composition only; if an application requires specific mechanical properties it should be inquired. Brinell hardness. If specified, tested according to ASTM A370, on a surface milled or ground from 0.020” to 0.118” (0.5 – 3.0 mm) below the plate surface. Typical hardness range is 185 to 241 HBW. Inquire for other HBW requirements.

Tolerances of AR200 Steel Plate

Tolerances for Mill Plate: Thickness, width and length tolerances for AR200 plates are in accordance with ASTM A6. ASTM A6 Standard Flatness Tolerances are available for plate thicknesses less than 0.500 inches and A6 Half-Standard Flatness tolerances are available for plate thicknesses of 0.500 inches up to 1.25 inches. Inquire for specific mill flatness capabilities.

Tolerances for Temper Leveled Plate: Thickness, width and length tolerances for AR200 plates are in accordance with ASTM A6. For thicknesses less than 0.188 inches, flatness tolerances are per ASTM A568 Table 13.1. The flatness tolerances for thicknesses 0.188 inches and greater are per ASTM A6 Half-Standard Flatness Tolerances or better are available for temper leveled plates. Flatness capabilities determined by the processing line and the minimum yield strength of the material.

Tolerances for Coils for Conversion To: For minimum gauge orders, thickness and width tolerances are in accordance with the respective ASTM specifications of A568 for thicknesses of less than 0.230 inches(exclusive), and A635 for thicknesses of 0.230 inches to 1.00 inch, inclusive. Thickness tolerances in accordance with Table S1.1 found in each of the ASTM specifications of A635 and A568, respective of thickness. Width tolerances are in accordance with Table 6 of ASTM A568 and Table 3 of ASTM A635. Thickness tolerances for nominal gauge orders must be inquired.


AR200 steel plate can be thermally cut satisfactorily. The hardened, heat-affected zones adjacent to the cut surfaces should be removed before any subsequent forming or welding operation.

Formability properties

AR200 may be employed in moderate cold forming applications. Proper edge preparation (i.e. removal of hardened heat-affected zones adjacent to the cut surfaces) is essential to minimize the potential for cracking. Cold forming should be performed at a minimum temperature of 68°F (20°C). Minimum recommended punch radius, R, and die width opening, W, as a function of bending orientation is provided in the following table.


AR200 is weldable by conventional electric arc welding processes when using low-hydrogen consumables and appropriate welding practices. The following recommendations should be considered.

This product a lower grade of wear resistant steel plate, which is referred to as AR200, AR235, or AR Medium depending on the manufacturer. It used in applications of slight abrasion where abrasion resistance combined with economy is the primary concern. This is an As-Rolled product made to a chemistry to achieve a desired brinell range.

Application of AR200 Steel Plate

AR200 steel plate is a carbon-manganese steel product with a nominal hardness of 200 Brinell (HBW). Typical applications for AR200 steel plate include cement mixer drums and fins, bulk material handling chute liners, skirtboard liners, and screw conveyers.

Abrasion resistant steel used in areas where there is likely to be a high degree of abrasion or wear of the steel plate. Typical applications are in truck beds, attachments to diggers and earth movers and in processing applications in the mining industry.

Industries and uses for abrasion resistant steel; Earth-moving equipment and attachments; Construction, demolition and recycling; Material handling, crushing and conveying; Mining, quarrying and processing; Cement and other industrial plants; Agricultural and forestry machinery; Trucks, trailers and other vehicles.
