Smith Bearing Stainless Steel Cam Followers!!

In extreme applications where bearings are being subjected to high-temperature or corrosive environments, alternative materials or special platings must be considered.  Smith Bearing manufactures needle roller bearings in a wide variety of high-temperature and corrosive resistant exotic alloys including 440-C Stainless Steel.

Corrosion resistant plating is effective when using bearings in corrosive environments.  Non-bearing surfaces such as inner races and end washers are cadmium plated to resist corrosion. The outer races of the bearings are typically hard-chrome plated to resist wear as well as corrosion.
