Piston ring material 3Cr13 stainless steel are commonly adopted by most turbocharger manufacturers in China to assemble OEM aftermarket turbo CHRAs or complete turbos. But we do not use it for performance turbos or ball bearing turbos, since these turbos need much better resistance, toughness and red hardness under the higher speed and temperature working condition.
OTS applies M2 high speed tool steel piston rings for performance and BB turbos, especially for turbine end. This material is widely used for cutting tools such as twist drills, taps, milling cutters, saws, knives etc. Because of its superior properties and durability, we even call these piston rings made of M2 material the toughest rings on the planet.
