Rhino-Tuf® EZ

AR400 Abrasion Resistant, Alloy Wear Plate

Rhino-Tuf EZ is an abrasion resistant, “thru-hardened”, AR400 wear plate. This alloy wear plate offers excellent service for applications where formability, toughness, weldability and abrasion resistance are required. Typical hardness range is 400/440BHN. Typical tensile strength is 180,000 PSI.

Rhino-Tuf EZ is different from commercial grade wear plates. Made in controlled heat lots; the addition of alloying elements, such as Nickel, Chromium, Molybdenum, Titanium and Copper contribute to a chemistry rich enough to provide superior wear and uniformity of hardness but lean enough to have a low Carbon Equivalency (CE), for safety in fabrication.

Do not settle for other plate products that only offer a surface hardness or that “shock” the plate to hardness with no depth of hardness. Rhino-Tuf EZ is engineered to replace most other commercial grade abrasion resistant plate products including, but not limited to: HSLA, T-1, A36, AR360, AR400 and A514. Rhino-Tuf EZ extends service life and offers real wear performance. Call or email us for a quote.


Key Features

Clean Steel Technology – a manufacturing process that delivers consistent steel through control and refinement of the melt.

Vacuum Degassed – eliminates many impurities found in standard commercial grade alloys. The result is a better, cleaner, and stronger product that extends service.

Abrasion Resistant – designed to resist many forms of abrasion, impact and gouging.

Ease of Machining and Welding – Free of hard and spots which allow for predictability in machining. Utilize the “Standard Low Hydrogen Method” for welding this alloy plate product.

Low Carbon Equivalency (CE) – User friendly. Formable. Responds well to fabrication in the field.
