TITUS AR 500

If Its Tough Enough For The Sherman Tank Its Tough Enough For You

General Information

TITUS AR 500 heat treated wear steel plate is intended for severe wear applications requiring a high degree of abrasion resistance.

Originally developed for extreme wear applications including ballistics, Titus AR 500 combines 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 is 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.
