BISPLATE® 500 is the hardest steel produced by Bisalloy Steels and offers exceptionally long life in sliding abrasion applications such as:
- Dump truck wear liners
- Wear liners
- Earthmoving buckets
- Cutting edges
- Ground engaging tools
BISPLATE® 500 is a medium carbon, high hardness, abrasion resistant steel. With appropriate attention to heat input, preheat and consumable selections, BISPLATE® 500 can be successfully welded to itself and a range of other steels by conventional techniques.
Because of its high hardness, cold forming of BISPLATE® 500 is difficult, requiring higher bending and forming forces; greater allowances must be made for springback. If heating is necessary, this should not exceed 200°C, otherwise mechanical properties might be affected.
