What is AR400 Steel?
AR400 is a specialty steel designed at the chemical level for improved wear resistance for specific applications. The steel is relatively expensive to produce, costing much more than simple mild steels such as A36 or 1018. However, the steel’s special properties make it the only choice for applications such as blades in bulldozers. Because of the unique strengths of AR400, it is used in applications such as heavy machinery and steel plate applications.
In addition to the abrasion resistance benefits, AR400 has increased impact resistance. What is the benefit of impact resistance? Digger blades and buckets on heavy machinery can not only withstand impacts from stones and other debris, but the constant movement of dirt doesn’t wear the steel down as quickly as other steels would.
