Cryogenic Treatment for Extended Wear and Stress Relief of Metals

Cryo-TreatmentThe Cryogenic process increases the density of existing materials to make them more durable and stronger, which can yield dramatic results in metal performance, durability, and wear.  By placing the materials in a specially constructed processor, liquid nitrogen is used to lower the temperature to -300 degrees F.  It is a dry process, I.E., the Liquid Nitrogen (LN2) never actually touches the part, it is only used to cool the chamber.  The Cryogenic process supplements conventional heat treatment, completing the metallurgical changes that the tempering/quenching begins.  This process is ideal for providing extended wear and durability as well as increasing the stress relieving properties of metal parts and tooling.
