>Used for areas of high abrasion.  No structural properties available.
I got into some of this stuff by mistake once. A bad scene. It's strictly 
for abrasion resistance. Typically not very tough, a very high 
yield-tensile ratio, not easily weldable and doesn't resist cracking 
well. Most structural properties aren't specified by manufacturers for 
this reason. It should be used for structural purposes.
