abrasionTriton Alloys Inc is the Largest Stockist and Exporter of Abrasion Resistant Plate. Abrasion Resistant (AR) steel plate is typically made in the as-rolled condition. These types/grades of steel plate products have been developed specifically for long service life in harsh conditions. AR products are suitable for a variety of applications in areas such as mining/quarrying, conveyors, material handling and construction, Bulldozers , and earthmoving.

The steel is quenched which provides wear resistance; in order to improve hardness it may also be tempered. Lower HB’s generally provide good cold bending properties and good weldability. Weldability is not generally reduced as the hardness increases. The benefits of employing wear-resistant plate steel in applications involving impact and/or sliding contact with abrasive material are immense.

Steel plate for use in abrasive conditions is not typical because it is not governed by any ASTM code or spec. Many steel plate manufacturers produce their own brand of abrasion resistant steel and these are usually distinguished by a brand name followed by the hardness of the steel which is measured in Brinell units

Abrasion Resistant Steel Plate Excellent Abrasion Resistant  4 or 5 times stronger than ordinary steel  Excellent Workability  Larger in elongation and better in workability  Excellent Weldability Decrease deformation rate  Wide range of sizes Available in a wide range of sizes

Fabrication of Abrasion Resistant Steel :


Welding :

Abrazo 400 can be welded under normal conditions (if you require advice on welding, machining or  forming then please contact any one of our offices) using MMA, MOG and SAW without preheat, up to a combined thickness of 60mm, provided hydrogen controlled electrodes are used.  Consumables should be dried in accordance with scale ‘D’ of BS 5135.  Consumables should be chosen on the basis of whether or not the weld metal is exposed to wear conditions.

Machining :

Machining or drilling is more difficult due to hardness.  For 400BHN use high-grade cobalt HSS E drilling tools and for 500BHN hard metal drilling tools are necessary.

Forming :

Abrasion steels can be readily cold formed.  Compared with steels of lower yields, three factors should be considered:

  • Higher press forces
  • A greater bend radius is required
  • Spring back.


Flame Cutting :

Material can be cut using conventional flame cutting practices without the need for preheat at ambient temperature.  The following cutting parameters are recommended:-

Milling :

Abrasion resistant steel can be machined by milling. The following recommendations are given for general guidance:-

0.10-0.15
* For further information on 450, 500 please contact us for details.


Cold Bending :

Where possible, cold bending should be carried out with the bend axis perpendicular to the rolling direction, this being the less onerous of the two directions. The following table contains guidelines for bending to a 90°angle.  In general however, bending radii should be as generous as possible.

 

Bending direction (bend axis) Minimum inside Minimum die
Bending radius opening
Perpendicular to rolling direction 3t 8.5t
Parallel to rolling direction 4t 10t
