(Wear resistant ) WR-steel, stands for wear-resistant steel. This group of steel includes a broad range of grades with a wide range of hardness levels 350 – 650 HV, dimensions and steel grades designed to give you a wear-resistant advantage when making product exposed to a high degree of wear and where service life is important. WR-steels are characterised by consistent properties and cost effectiveness due to optimized alloy content for different end applications.
Boron grade 29MnCrB5-2 is a non-standardised grade located in between 27MnCrB5-2 and 33MnCrB5-2. It is suitable for wear parts, but may be heat-treated for good toughness if needed. A tight chemical composition ensures repeatable heat-treatment response.
* Designation followed by "*" is not an official EN standard grade but named according to the rules in EN 10027.
