AISI 52100 Chrome Steel Properties

52100 Steel AISI52100 Chrome Steel

Low alloy martensitic chrome steel, AISI 52100 thanks to its high hardness, wear resistance, surface finishing and dimensional precision, it is widely used to manufacture mechanical components. Chromium (Cr) has a tendency to increase hardness penetration. Chromium can also increase the toughness and wear resistance of steel. Probably one of the most well known effects of chromium on steel is the tendency to resist staining and corrosion. Steels with 12% or more chromium are referred to as stainless steels.
