11-14% Manganese Steel Wear Plate & Wear Bar
Workwear 14 is a true austenitic 11-14% manganese steel (Hadfield Steel) product. It exhibits excellent work hardening characteristics in service applications where impact and abrasion are prevalent. This material will work-harden under impact and moderate loads up to 550BHN hardness. Material can be welded with standard manganese electrodes.
Manganese steel is an austenitic steel which means it is non-magnetic.
Because this product hardens under cold work conditions care should be taken when forming, drilling or machining is being considered. Call or email us for a quote.
