Impact 600 steel plate has a surface hardness of between 570-650 HBW (aim is 600 Brinell) and is designed for use in the manufacturing of medium to heavy-duty service vehicles and extended field use. Examples include ballistic applications, military and large transit vehicles, heavy commercial construction and extreme-load hauling. A high-strength steel for heavier use applications, greater load demand and longer wear resistance.
High strength alloyed plate quench and tempered to a nominal 600 Brinell hardness. After heat treatment, product is intended for use in applications requiring extreme resistance to abrasion.
*Carbon Equivalency calculated using the following formula: C.E. = C + Mn/6 + (Cr+Mo+V)/5 + (Ni+Cu)/15
Impact AR600 is very difficult to weld due to relatively high carbon and alloying element content and extremely high strength of the material leading to potential cracking in heat affected zone (HAZ). Special precautions must be taken when welding.
