Abrasion Resistant Steel
High carbon abrasive resistant alloy steel plates generally offer good resistance to sliding and impact abrasion. The high carbon content in the alloy increases the hardness and toughness of the steel, making it an ideal material for applications that require high impact or high abrasion resistance. It is possible to get high hardness with a high carbon steel, and the steel will have good resistance to penetration. However, the wear rate will be rapid compared to heat treated alloy plate because high carbon steel is brittle, so particles can be more easily torn from the surface. As a result, high carbon steels are not used for high wear applications.
High carbon steel alloys are especially suited for use in the mining, wood products, and material handling industries. Applications include dump truck bottoms and sides, liners for chutes and dryers, gravel crushers, tree cutter blades, wear plates, and vibrating conveyors.
Because these plates are ordered to Brinell hardness, no mechanical properties, such as tensile strength or yield strength are guaranteed.
