Technical Information


  1. 1.

    In the gereral case the increase of the static strength of steel 55S2 resulting from lowering the tempering temperature leads to an increase of the fatigue strength. But this necessitates compressive stresses in the surface, which can be achieved by supersaturation with carbon (by 0.05–0.10%).

  2. 2.

    Tempering steel 55S2 at 350°C impairs the fatigue characteristics due to temper brittleness.
