The balls manufactured with this material presents a high resistance to wear and load. Used mainly for bearings production.
Chrome steel is the most used material for precision steel balls.
This type of balls presents the advantage of offering a bigger resistance to load regarding the balls manufactured with low carbon because the internal part of the ball is able to be hardened.
Their cost is smaller than the balls manufactured in Chrome steel AISI 52100. They are used in applications like bicycles, bearings for furniture.
