MIL A 46100

Do you wish to buy ballistic steel MIL A 46100 plates that are made with controlled physical properties? If yes, then you are at the right place because you will get to know what makes the plates highly useful in various applications.

Ballistic Steel MIL-A-46100 plates are made of a high-carbon, low-alloy steel with a hardness of approximately 470-540 Brinell Hardness (BHN). They are military spec steel that exhibits a high level of hardness and is available easily at online stores. A46100 steel is used in high-velocity projectiles and is useful to protect vehicles and structures from snipers and other weapons such as HPVs.

For different manufacturing products, different level of thickness is required. The steel used can withstand high temperatures and is quenched to sustain all levels of protection. They have a ductility limit, and the surface hardness can lie between 534 BHN and 477. You can buy the product with different specifications, dimensions and lengths. 

The size of the product must be such that it perfectly defends, and the distance around it must reach the target easily. There are lots of benefits to buying the product online, such as you will get a wide variety of products with entire specifications and lengths. You can place orders for desired specifications such as length, width and thickness.

FAQ's for Ballistic Steel MIL A 46100 Sheet and Plates

Ballistic Steel MIL-A-46100 plates are not highly corrosion-resistant, as they are primarily designed for high hardness and toughness to resist penetration by ballistic threats. However, they may be treated with a protective coating or a corrosion-resistant finish to increase their resistance to corrosion.

Ballistic steel MIL A46100 sheets are made of iron-based alloys and are, therefore, magnetic. The magnetic properties of the steel can vary based on the specific composition and processing of the material.

The density of Ballistic Steel MIL A46100 sheets is approximately 7.85 grams per cubic centimeter. This is the standard density of most types of steel. The exact density can vary slightly depending on the specific composition of the steel and any heat treatment or processing it has undergone.

Ballistic Steel MIL A46100 is known for its high strength and hardness. It is commonly used for applications that require resistance to ballistic impacts and high stress, such as armour plating for military vehicles, security doors, and protective shields. The strength of the steel depends on factors such as its composition, heat treatment, and manufacturing process. Generally, ballistic steel is considered a solid and durable material, capable of providing excellent protection against ballistic and impact threats.
