Characteristics of GGG50

GGG50 is a material with a predominantly ferritic/pearlitic base structure. It offers good tensile strength and a satisfactorily high yield point combined with good toughness. GGG50 is easily machinable and can be used up to about 450 °C.

In comparison to GGG40, this material is the ideal choice for applications where the level of wear and tear is higher, such as running wheels and wheel hubs (e.g. sweepers).
