Wear resistant steel is a quenched steel with additions of alloying elements and its main feature is the high hardness specially used at high mechanical abrasion works.
In this class there are materials which have Brinell hardness in the range 370-550 and they also exhibit good weldability and bendability.
Wear resistant steels are used in dump trucks, hoppers, channel coatings, ore carriers, parts of blast furnaces and industrial fans, cement plants, iron and steel industry, mines etc.
