The most common type of rolling bearing steel is chrome SAE 52100

Because of its capacity to withstand severe static and cyclic stresses, steel is the material of choice for bearing production. Hardenability, fatigue strength, wear resistance, toughness, and cost-effectiveness are all factors in the selection of rolling bearing steels.

Bearing steels can often sustain billions of stress cycles when fatigue tested in rolling contact. Bearing steel is subjected to a complicated, multi-axial tension between the rolling element and bearing raceway during operation/testing. Furthermore, rolling bearing steel consists of outer ring, cage, steel ball, and inner ring.

A rolling bearing life theory is based on the average of a large number of comparable bearings. These models can assist in determining the life of a bearing in a realistic manner. For single bearings, life models provide more accurate predictions than typical life estimates. A life model is a statistical model that predicts how long a bearing will endure under various circumstances. Other aspects that affect a bearing\'s durability are also included.
