Severe Impact and Abrasion Resistant Plate
Lasts 3 to 5 Times Longer Than AR400 Commodity Wear Steel
QT-PLUS® proprietary chemistry and unique thermal heat-treating process produces a premium quality severe impact and abrasion resistant plate unmatched in the industry. QT-PLUS® wear life is 3 to 5 times longer than AR400 commodity wear steel.
QT-PLUS® is produced to ISO 9001:2015 certified standards ensuring the highest quality.
Parts manufactured with QT-PLUS® provide outstanding resistance to abrasion and wear and are extraordinarily ductile.
QT-PLUS® plates come in a variety of standard or cut-to-size dimensions. QT-PLUS® plates are stocked in sizes from ¼” up to 5” thick.
QT PLUS® IS SUPERIOR TO AR GRADE STEELS
WELDABILITYThe exhibited excellent weldability of QT-PLUS® is due to the tightly controlled carbon range (.24 -.26) and extremely low hydrogen levels, (<4 ppm).
TOUGHNESSQT PLUS® is extremely tough due to enriched nickel content and the proprietary heat-treatment process.
THROUGH-HARDNESSThe chemical composition of our tough wear steel, QT-PLUS®, produces a product that retains hardness throughout the entire plate thickness. By comparison, the sparse alloy content of commodity-grade steels prohibits through-hardness of the plate, resulting in rapid wear.
Our QT-PLUS® Wear Steel is produced under the strictest quality standards with characteristics that are uniform in every plate, providing reliable predictability for all applications.
By comparison, commodity AR grade steels’ inconsistent heat-treating processes and wide variations in chemistries create “hard” and “soft” spots and plate warping, resulting in rapid, unpredictable wear rates and difficult installations.
WORKING WITH QT PLUS® WEAR STEEL
QT PLUS® may be machined and drilled using conventional methods with proper tooling and speeds.
