Vanguard Premium Alloy Wear Plate (500 HB)

SAS Global developed Vanguard Alloy Wear Plate to specifically meet the needs and challenges associated with extreme working environments. Vanguard is a water quenched, through-hardened, martensitic steel that is highly impact and abrasion resistant. The homogeneous hardness of Vanguard is achieved by its fine-grain microstructure, which is steadily cooled during its special quench and tempering process. Vanguard is also a very strong and tough wear plate due to its low phosphorus and sulphur content. The high hardness and strength of Vanguard allows it to outlast AR400 by 2 to 3 times. This allows a thinner, lighter weight liner plate to be utilized.
