General Info About AR400 / AR400F

It is a high-carbon alloy steel that is perfect for applications that require high wear resistance. It shows good formability, excellent weldability, and good strength.

More Details About AR400 / AR400F

  • Advantages/Disadvantages

    It has good corrosion resistance and can withstand sliding and impact abrasion. This steel is often used in applications where formability and weldability are a must. One disadvantage of this grade is its fair machinability.

  • Industries

    This grade is often used in the material handling equipment, mining, and aggregate industry.

  • Applications

    Dump truck liners, storage bins liners, hopper bucket liners and construction equipment are some common applications for this steel grade.

  • Machining

    It has fair machinability.

  • Welding

    It has excellent weldability.

  • Heat Treatment

    It is heat treatable.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • What is AR400 steel used for?

    It is used where high wear resistance is needed. This includes differ blades and buckets, heavy machinery, and mining machinery.

  • What is the hardness of this grade?

    The Brinell Hardness Number (BHN) of this grade is typically 360 – 440. The Rockwell hardness is 42, class C.

  • What is the difference between AR400 and AR500 steel?

    Abrasion resistant steels are classified by their typical Brinell Hardness Number. Consequently, AR400 will have a lower hardness than AR500.
