SWR (Super Wear Resistant) bearing steel is specially developed for continuous casting operations. The fine structure of evenly distributed carbides and carbonitrides significantly increases wear resistance. The controlled amount of residual austenite eliminates damage due to flaking, thus substantially prolonging bearing life. Increasing the core toughness against fracturing prevents cracks.
Improved wear resistance – three times better than AISI 52100 bearing steel.
Extended flaking life – five times longer than to AISI 52100.
Extended crack operation time – five times longer than AISI 52100
