AR – Abrasion Resistant Steel 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. Designers and plant operators choose AR plate steel when striving to extend service life of critical components, and reduce the weight of each unit put into service.
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 plates, also known as wear resistant steel plates, are widely used in areas wear the wear and tear of plates is high, such as mining equipment, truck tippers, and cement industry.
