Titus AR 500 Steel Plates
If It’s Tough Enough For The Sherman Tank, It’s Tough Enough For You
General Characteristics of AR 500 Steel Plates
TITUS AR 500 Steel Plates are heat treated and intended for severe wear applications requiring a high degree of abrasion resistance.
Originally developed for extreme wear applications including ballistics, the Titus AR 500 steel plates combine a high carbon level with Titus’s proven manganese, chrome/nickel chemistry to produce a steel with up to ten times the wear resistance of ordinary steel.
Titus AR 500 steel plates are heat treated to provide a Brinell hardness range of 477 to 534 with a typical Brinell hardness of 514. Abrasion resistance is typically 5:1 compared to mild steels.
