52100 steel is a deep hardening alloy used for aircraft bearings or other high stressed parts where good rolling contact fatigue strength is required at temps below 400 degrees. The 52100 vac melt steel material offers superior cleanliness and internal soundness over the conventional air melted SAE 52100.
