Abrex / sumihard plates
What is AR400 steel?
The use of abrasion resistance ABREX steel plate markedly reduces the weight of structural members exposed to serve abrasive conditions. Compare with regular steel, ABREX steel plate reduces structural weight and delivers economic merits.
Adoption of high performance abrasion resistant ABREX will prolong the service life of machinery and component.
ABREX / SUMIHARD K400 Wear Abrasion Resistant Steel Plates
Abrex / Sumihard 400 is a through hardened abrasion resistant steel with a typical hardness of 415 BHN. These steels are the most widely used of the wear resistant grades. They exhibit an excellent combination of high resistance to impact, workability, weld ability and resistance to abrasion. It has about 3 times the abrasion resistance of common steel plate and contributes to prolonging the service life of mechanical parts.
WEAR RESISTANT STEEL PATES is used in areas where there is likely to be a high degree of abrasion or wear of the steel plate.
Steels with a high HB rating (Brinel 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)
