IKW  BALL BEARING MATERIALS

There are essentially two choices for the material used in ball bearings - chrome steel or stainless steel. Since the material plays a major part in the performance of a bearing in any given application, it is very important that the correct material is used. Note that the specified material applies to the load bearing components only - the rings and the balls. The retainer and the shields (if used) are usually made from a different material and are subject to separate specification.

CHROME STEEL (AISI 52100 OR EQUIVALENT)

This is the standard material used for ball bearing applications where load capacity is the main consideration. The machinability of this steel is excellent, giving smooth, low noise raceway finishes, together with superior life. Chrome steel material is recommended in applications where corrosion is not a factor.

AISI 440C STAINLESS STEEL

The use of 440C material has declined in favor of other, more modern stainless steel formulations. However, it is still widely available and has very high resistance to corrosion.
