Chrome Steel Features
Chrome steel balls are a heavy-duty alternative to balls made of weaker materials such as plastics and polymers. As a bearing grade alloy steel, chrome steel offers the ideal durability, performance, and surface characteristics required by many industries.
Balls manufactured from chrome steel typically hold up well under extreme conditions. The martensitic structure of chrome steel balls is very hard with a high tensile strength and high resistance to wear.
This makes chrome balls ideal for use in heavy-duty industrial and chemical situations. Other applications requiring the use of such durable chrome spheres include automotive parts, high-speed ball bearings, and lock mechanisms.
