Straight line scratches on surface of raceways or rolling elements caused during mounting or dismounting of bearing. >>
Dull or cloudy spots appear on surface along with light Wear. From such dull spots, tiny Cracks are generated downward to a depth of 5-10 ｵm. Small particles fall off and minor Flaking occurs widely. >>
