Our proprietary iron and steel alloys are formulated for any wear or heat-resistant application.

Microscopic analysis in Columbia Steel's metallurgy department
 
Based on more than a century of experience, Columbia Steel has developed our own proprietary series of alloys which exceed the classic ASTM minimum standards. We offer one of the largest selections of wear- and heat-resistant alloys available from any single supplier. That provides many advantages to the end user. For example, we can supply all the various parts needed for a cement plant maintenance shutdown, from quarry to grinding mills to kiln to cooler. By varying the composition and heat treatment of our alloys, we are able to fine tune them, balancing toughness, hardness and/or heat and corrosion resistance for the specific application.


ALLOYPROPERTIESAPPLICATIONS
Austenitic Manganese SteelsUnequaled toughness and good resistance to abrasion is provided by work hardening when service conditions have sufficient impactLiners for gyratory, cone, and jaw crushers, roll shells, shredder liners, hammers and grates
