Boron steel for wear resistance

Ovako supplies different grades of boron steel for agricultural machines, such as plows and many other products where wear resistance is a critical issue.

Boron steels are used in wear resistance parts and fasteners for agricultural, forestry and off-road vehicles. Boron alloying even in small quantities significiantly increases the hardenability of steel, allowing lower contents of carbon and other alloying elements.


The benefits are:

  • low hardness in the rolled condition
  • good weldability
  • good formability
  • a good combination of high tensile strength and tougness after quenching and tempering.


More highly alloyed steel grades can often be replaced with boron steel.
