GS-52 for castings without special stress with good wearing properties: application in the crane and conveyor system construction, in the construction of tools and processing machines, for construction machines, e.g. crawler pads, spring tension plates, crawler chain links, differential casings, brake discs. For castings with static or dynamic stress: application for cog wheels, toothed rims, eccentric wheels, drive tumblers, centre pivots, crawler chain links, clutch bodies, ball races, front walls, buffer discs, buffer heads. Limited suitability for surface hardening. Application for temperatures between -10 and +300 °C.

Equivalent Materials

This material data has been provided by WIAM.

"Typical" values were obtained via a literature search. "Predicted" values were imputed via artificial intelligence technology. While we have placed significant efforts in ensuring data accuracy, "typical" and "predicted" data should be considered indicative and verified by appropriate material testing. Please do contact us if additional information on the the predicted data method is required.
All metrics apply to room temperature unless otherwise stated. SI units used unless otherwise stated.
Equivalent standards are similar to one or more standards provided by the supplier. Some equivalent standards may be stricter whereas others may be outside the bounds of the original standard.
