At Brown McFarlane we have always prided ourselves in being at the forefront of innovation in terms of both our processing equipment and our product range.
As part of this approach, we are pleased to announce that we have been awarded UK and Ireland exclusivity for the distribution of Creusabro® 4800, Creusabro® 8000 & Creusabro® DUAL products, manufactured in Europe by Industeel a subsidiary of ArcelorMittal.
Creusabro® steels are genuinely different than classical low-alloyed martensitic abrasion resistant plates, they are designed to provide a cost-effective combination of wear resistance and easy fabrication.
Creusabro® 4800 is a high-performance wear resistant steel, exhibiting a wear resistance 50% higher than that of conventional 400HB water quenched steel.
Rather than relying exclusively on a high hardness level, properties of Creusabro® 4800 are improved as a result of the combination of an enriched alloying content (chromium, nickel, molybdenum and titanium) and specific heat treatment procedures. Creusabro® 4800 is designed to offer the best possible optimization of an exceptional wear resistance and very acceptable workability.
Creusabro® 4800 is ideal for applications in mines and quarries, cement and steelmaking industries, public works and agricultural machinery. The grade is suitable for all types of abrasion, sliding or impact, dry or wet environments, including operating temperatures up to 350 – 450°C
Creusabro® 8000 is a high performance wear resistant steel, exhibiting a wear resistance 50% higher than conventional 500HB water quenched steel, combined with excellent weldability and very acceptable workability.
Creusabro® 8000 is ideal for applications in mines and quarries, cement and steelmaking industries, public works and agricultural machinery. In the toughest industries such as mining and earth moving, the higher resistance to wear and impact abrasion translates into increased service life of wear parts and components made of Creusabro® 8000 against conventional water quenched steels.
We already have access to mill stocks and our full stock range is expected to be in place by December this year; if you have any questions or enquiries in the meantime, please don’t hesitate to contact us via our website www.browmac.com or by e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
