Chromium Metal Balls

We are providing AISI52100 series chromium steel balls in different sizes and in different amounts depending on customers’ request. Here are the prominent features of AISI52100 quality chromium metal balls;

AISI 52100 quality balls are often referred to as chrome steel balls or bearing balls. Here are some key characteristics of AISI 52100 steel balls:

  • Material Composition: AISI 52100 steel balls are primarily composed of iron (Fe), carbon (C), chromium (Cr), and small amounts of other elements such as manganese (Mn) and silicon (Si). The specific composition typically adheres to industry standards.
  • High Hardness: AISI 52100 steel balls are known for their high hardness. They are hardened through heat treatment processes such as quenching and tempering, which increase their strength and wear resistance.
  • Excellent Wear Resistance: Due to their hardness and heat treatment, AISI 52100 steel balls offer excellent wear resistance, making them suitable for applications where repeated rolling or sliding contact occurs, such as ball bearings, automotive components, and machinery.
  • Good Fatigue Life: AISI 52100 steel balls exhibit good fatigue life, enabling them to withstand repeated loading cycles without premature failure. This property is crucial for their use in high-stress applications, including bearings and other mechanical systems.
  • Corrosion Resistance: The chromium content in AISI 52100 steel provides a certain level of corrosion resistance, protecting the balls from rust and other forms of corrosion. However, it’s important to note that prolonged exposure to corrosive environments can still affect the steel’s performance, requiring appropriate measures to prevent corrosion.
  • Precision Manufacturing: AISI 52100 steel balls are often manufactured with high precision to ensure consistent size, shape, and surface finish. This precision is vital for their effective use in bearings, valves, and other applications where dimensional accuracy is critical.

Overall, AISI 52100 steel balls are widely used in various industries, particularly in the production of bearings and mechanical components. Their combination of high hardness, wear resistance, and fatigue life makes them a popular choice for applications requiring rolling or sliding contact with minimal deformation or wear.
