resistant steel is 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.
The key quality for wear resistant steels
is their hardness. We sell wear plate according
to its hardness measured on the Brinnell Hardness
Test – usually in 400HB and 500HB grades.
If your specification is to the Rockwell Test
we can also advise.
Steels with a high HB rating (Brinell Hardness)
are intended for applications where wear or
abrasion resistance is important. The benefit
of using an abrasion resistant steel is that
that the plant, machinery or constructions
working life can be extended considerably.
This can significantly improve the reliability,
durability and safety of structures and equipment.
It also helps to reduce the maintenance costs
associated with wear and breakdown of plant.
400 HB steel is over 3 times harder than mild
steel (120HB), but only a third as hard as
stainless steel (1250HB). Example uses are
for construction machinery, skips, bulldozers
and excavators, buckets and conveyors. 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
Wear resistant steels are not appropriate
for use at temperatures over 250°C as the
heat can cause changes to the material properties.
Testing is undertaken by firing 10mm steel
or tungsten carbide ball at 29kN and the size
of the resulting indentation is measured.
Tests are carried out according to EN ISO
6506 or ASTM E10. The figures below are representative
of 15mm thick 400HB and 500HB plates.
Values are typical and
for general information purposes only.
Yields for 400HB steel are
in the region of 1100 MPa with tensile strengths
of about 1250 MPa. ABRASION RESISTANT HB 200/400/450/500
wear-resistant steel. has a hardness of approximately
200/400/450/500 HB. It combines high wear
resistance with toughness and good weldability.
