420SS (Stainless Steel Balls)

 

AISI type 420 stainless steel balls afford the advantage of maximum hardness combined with corrosion-resisting properties. This hardness, together with precise geometry and fine surface finish, makes them especially useful for both bearing and valve applications, as well as writing instruments and lighters.
