Developed to provide resistance to mechanical abrasion, corrosion by mineral acids, salt solutions and atmospheric oxidation, KML Bearing Canada’s black, lustrous, strongly adherent oxide-coated ball bearing inserts are suitable for washdown applications. The coating process consists of mechanical or a chemical surface pre-treatment, formation of the oxide and converting the coated oxide to tenacious nature by a heat treatment. Pre-treated substrates are then subjected to surface oxide coating in an aqueous media. A triple-lip seal protects the grease and the internal components from contamination and early deterioration.
