Click to See Welcome Video

The Wear Perform range is our eXtra Abrasion Resistant steels from thyssenkrupp Steel Europe are the solution for applications where wear is a key factor.

Wear Perform is available in various grades from 300 HBW to 600 HBW and plate thicknesses from 4,00 mm to 100 mm, tailored to particular applications, e.g. mining equipment, earthmoving machinery, steel mill and cement plant equipment, agricultural machinery, etc.

Wear Perform 400 and 450 plates can also be supplied as cut-to-length plates in thicknesses from 4,00 up to 8,00 mm. Due to their very close thickness tolerances of ±0.008’’ (±0,2 mm) they offer weight reduction benefits as well as advantages in terms of cold forming.

Wear-resistant steel

Thanks to their extreme hardness and toughness, WearPerform heavy plates last at least five times longer than conventional structural steel. ThyssenKrupp Steel Europe offers further special wear-resistant structural steels.

WearPerfom wear-resistant steels have proved successful in various applications in which wear and abrasion are major cost factors. Thanks to their high hardness, wear can be minimized and component life increased.

The wide range of grades allows designers to choose the optimum steel for the particular application taking loading and production conditions into account. XAR® steels have found a wide range of applications in important areas of engineering.

We have an array of wear resistant steel grades available:

  • XAR® 300

  • XAR® HT

  • XAR® 400

  • XAR® 400 W

  • XAR® 400 HR

  • XAR® 450

  • XAR® 500

  • XAR® 600
