CRYOGENIC STRESS RELIEVING OF METALS
The Cryogenic process increases the density of existing materials to make them more solid and stronger, which can yield dramatic results in metal performance, durability, wear.
By placing metal in a specially constructed tank, liquid nitrogen is used to lower the temperature to -300 degrees F. The Cryogenic process supplements standard heat/quench tempering, completing the metallurgical changes that heat treating begins.
This process is ideal for providing extended wear and increasing the stress relieving properties of metal parts and tooling.
Treatment for Extended Wear and Stress Relieving
of Metals offers many advantages:
Reduces friction and wear properties as well as surface roughness
Alters and refines the molecular grain structure
Allows the machining of parts to tighter tolerances
Increases dimensional stability on critical components
Relieves stress fracturing
Provides for easier machining and redressing
Increases component durability and lifespan
Lowers replacement costs and downtime due to increased wear and use
