Ovako 152 is a high cleanliness case hardening steel used for bearing, transmission components and other highly stressed applications. There are three versions of the grade.
152A / 20NiCrMoS2 - variant with regulated sulphur content for enhanced machinability
152C / 20NiCrMo2 - variant with enhanced hardenability (BQ)
152G / 20NiCrMo2 - Bearing Steel Quality (BQ) variant
BQ-steel® is a bearing quality clean steel optimized for fatigue strength and is also ideal for new design solutions outside the bearing industry.
20NiCrMo2, 20NiCrMoS2, 8620, 8620H, 1.6522, 1.6523, 1.6526, SS2506, UNS H 86200
