to be used in the manufacture of anti-friction bearings. And is the most common steel grade in ASTM A295 standard for high-carbon anti-friction bearing steel.
What is 52100 bearing steel?
52100 bearing steel is a high carbon, chromium containing low alloy
steel that is through hardening and noted in particular for use as
52100 bearing steel is one kind of special steel with features of
high wear resistance and rolling fatigue strength. High-carbon chromium
bearing steel, engineering steel and some types of stainless steel and
heat resistant steel are used as materials of bearings and for other

4. Forging of A295 52100 Bearing Steel
52100 alloy steel is forged at 927 to 1205°C, and should not be forged
below 925ºC. A post-forge equalization treatment is recommended at 745ºC
for 4-6 hours followed by air cooling for SAE/AISI 52100 steel.
6. Heat Treatment for ASTM 52100 Bearing Steel
52100 alloy bearing steel is heated at 816°C followed by quenching in
oil. Before performing this process, it is subjected to normalizing heat
treatment at 872°C followed by slowly cooling in order to reduce the
AISI 52100 bearing steels alloy can be hot worked at 205 to 538°C.
AISI 52100 bearing steel can be cold worked using conventional techniques in the annealed or normalized conditions.
For spheroidize anneale, the following isothermal anneal is recommended:
1500ºF (815ºC) for 3 hours
1350ºF (735ºC) for 4 hours
1250ºF (675ºC) for 3 hours
Slow cool to 1000ºF (540ºC) then air cool.
AISI 52100 alloy bearing steel could be hardened by quenching in water from 801-829 degree or quench in oil from 816-842 degree.
Temper to desired hardness as indicated by tempering curves after water or oil quench.
5. Applications of 52100 Bearing Steel
steel 52100 grade bearing steel is mainly used for the manufacture of
aircraft bearings and other highly stressed parts. This steel grade
52100 steel is preferably vacuum arc re-melted to give optimum
Typical applications: Bearing Manufacture, CV joints, ball screws, gauges, knife etc.
Painting heating pipes. Protect your heating pipes and save money… Protect your heating pipes from corrosion and oxidation for years to come. COATING 51 by Gilbert Geraerts offers you improved heat and light output. This combi paint (red lead steel primer and topcoat combined into one) is ideal for greenhouses. Fast, easy and safe to use. Suitable as a primer and topcoat, for heating pipes, growing tubes, hoistable heating frames and other ironwork and structures. High covering capacity, resistant to moisture and high temperatures and safe for your crops. Safe, provided used judiciously. Processing of this pipe & tube paint is easier than ever. COATING 51 has been developed by Geraerts, in collaboration with a specialised manufacturer. Our standard white paint is specially coloured, and has a blue glow, which ensures a brighter appearance and excellent covering capacity.
The advantages of pipe coatings:
- White tubes provide up to 55% more light reflection, and more heat output of approximately 10%
- COATING 51 is a primer and topcoat in one, with a high level of rust-proofing.
- More environmentally friendly process and product
COATING 51 is low in aromatic compounds and harmless to crops after through-drying. When manually painting, one can choose between one or two layers. For maintenance purposes, a single layer is almost always enough. Painting the tubes by hand is usually done with a washcloth or painter’s mitt. COATING 51 is a satin finish tube coating with active anticorrosive pigments. COATING 51 is suitable for both maintenance work and the painting of new pipes. Because COATING 51 possesses the hardness of a topcoat, combined with red lead, each layer is rust proof. COATING 51 is a high quality red lead steel primer and provides protection for years to come. The product has been designed exactly for this type of application and application technique. The product is available in a 20-litre package. The washcloth and paint glove are available in pairs.
We recycle history by turning antique wagon wheels into a heirloom blade. This video shows the whole process from preparing the wrought iron to the finished knife. First, the wagon tire is forged and prepared for melting in the crucible. A crucible steel bar is forged from the ingot and then turned into a powerful blade. Finally, everything is put together and you can marvel at the carbide grain structure of the blade.
