wear-resistant steels

To help customers take best advantage of XAR®, we offer guidelines for how to work with it.

XAR® (eXtra Abrasion Resistant) steels from thyssenkrupp Steel Europe are the solution for applications where wear is a key factor.

XAR® 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.

New: XAR® 400 and XAR®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.

Higher wear resistance

Good cutting and welding characteristics

Better formability

Lower costs
