NLMK Group, an international metallurgical company, supplied Quard 450 wear-resistant steel from NLMK Clabecq to the Becema machine building plant. The steel will be used in a joint project between Betsema and Mercedes-Benz for the production of a series of BETSEMA FORMAT dump trucks on the Mercedes-Benz Arocs 8x8 chassis that meet the Euro-5 environmental standard, which regulates the content of harmful substances in exhaust gases.
From NLMK Group steel Becema will manufacture a body with molded sides and a double floor, designed for the transportation of inert materials (sand, gravel, crushed stone). Quard 450 steel will provide a high level of wear and impact resistance due to the optimal combination of hardness and toughness.
Quard is used in areas with severe operating conditions and is recommended, in particular, for construction and mining equipment ( excavators, dump trucks, bulldozers, bunkers, mixers, etc.). The unique wear-resistant properties of this steel grade make it possible to more than triple the service life of individual components of special equipment.
