Blackstar sprockets set the bar when it comes to quality at an industry competitive price point. With any sprocket, It begins with the plain material, with the Blackstar sprockets they utilize a 1045 grade of steel instead of the popular 1018 or "sintered steel" type.
Blackstar Sprocket Material
1045 Steel Element Content:
0.420% - 0.50%
98.51% - 98.98%
0.60% - 0.90 %
1045 Steel Physical Properties:
1045 Steel Mechanical Properties:
Hardness (Rockwell B)
Tensile Strength (Ultimate)
Tensile Strength (Yield)
Elongation at Break (in 50mm)
Reduction of Area
Modulus of Elasticity
On top of using a premium 1045 grade of steel, Blackstar sprockets are induction hardened on tooth counts 30 and below. Induction hardening is a type of surface hardening in which the teeth are induction hardened then quenched. The quenched teeth then undergo a martensitic transformation, increasing the hardness of the teeth. This drastically increases the performance and durability of the sprocket. Dimensionally Blacksatar sprockets are made to ANSI B29.1 standards so they directly interchange with other brands.
to wrap things up, all the Blackstar roller chain sprockets are black oxide coated. Black oxide is also known as blackening is a conversion coating utilized for mild corrosion resistance and appearance that minimalizes light reflection. The black oxide also provides minimum buildup versus other coatings.
