Anywhere you need "abrasion resistance", its used a lot in sand and gravel plants, asphalt plants etc...

Here's a good overview of AR400 steel.

Good stuff. I need to get a line on some locally.
I'll be calling around next week. Some flat bar and plate on hand might be the difference in getting a job or not getting a job. I don't have the equipment to deal with a 4x8 sheet so I'll have to see what options are available.
I am thinking this is a HUGE issue. When you don't have the materials on hand customers make another call. Last week a guy calls about a 2x2 sq. tubing rail on a rollback.
Gravy job but I messed up and said I'll have to run out and pick up a stick of tubing. Oh ok he said, I'll bring it by and let you have a look. Never heard from him again.

Yeah 2x2x1/4 or 3/16 is good to have on hand. I tried to get 4x1/4'' strips of ar400 for this job but they didn't have it and weren't sure if they could even get it. I had to buy a whole sheet and strip it down.

I called the closest supplier and he doesn't stock AR400.
He had some Jalloy maybe with AR designation / DP500, I'm guessing here, are those the same two things and could they be used for the same purpose as the AR400?
