ABRASIVE RESISTANT STEEL PLATE.
WEAR RESISTANT STEELS WITH EXCELLENT PROCESSING PROPERTIES.
HIGH HARDNESS - ULTRA-HIGH WEAR RESISTANCE
DUROSTAT* grades are wear resistant steels with excellent processing properties from Voestalpine Grobblech*.
DUROSTAT* is mainly used for structural components exposed to high mechanical stress and heavy abrasion.
Hence typical applications of DUROSTAT* comprise crushers, screens, conveyors, chutes, cutters, dredging components and superstructures for trucks.
As a result of their high hardness, DUROSTAT* steels have a wear resistances many times higher than that of conventional steels.
Due to the hight hardness compared to conventional steels, the thickness of DUROSTAT* plates can be reduced significantly. This leads to lower dead-weights and thus higher payloads.
EXCELLENT COLD FORMABILITY
Despite of their high hardness, DUROSTAT* steels are suitable for cold forming due to their homogeneous and fine-gained structure.
BEST WELDING PROPERTIES
DUROSTAT* can be welded without problems. Due to their relatively low carbon content. Preheating temperatures as low as 80 C are sufficient in inert gas welding with solid wires for crack-free welded joins. No preheating is needed for DUROSTAT* 400 plates up to 20 mm thickness and DUROSTAT* 500 plates up to 10 mm thickness.
On request DUROSTAT* can be delivered in pickled condition.
DUROSTAT* steels are melted according to the LD process (oxygen top blowing process). The hight hardness is achieved by accelerated cooling from the rolling temperatture or by conventional hardening.
DUROSTAT* grades are characterised by modern, low carbon alloy concepts. Low carbon equivalent values indicate excellent welding properties.
