Cryogenic Treatment in Transportation and Racing

The uses for Deep Cryogenic Treatment of engine parts and in the transportation field are innumerable, as has been proven time and again both in the racing industry and on fleet vehicles. It’s well known that over 80% of mechanical failures are caused by fatigue. Using cryogenic treatment of engine parts excels at increasing fatigue life of components, ensuring they perform longer or endure increased stress created by racing or day to day use.

Benefits of Treated Parts

When left untreated, a component can change in size and dimension. These changes are due to heat, vibration, or age. These factors induce the release of residual stresses and changes to the crystal structure, which in turn, can create warping and size change. You may find warped brake rotors, distorted pistons, and warped engine blocks appear over time.

Treated valve springs can show a 700% increase over their normal service life, while components that wear by friction also show considerable life increases. In fact, laboratory tests initiated by the U.S. Postal Service showed that cryogenic treatment of brake rotors resulted in parts that lasted over five times longer than the best untreated rotors. Virtually any part of an engine, transmission, or drive train can benefit from our cryogenic treatment of engine parts.  Increased life translates to lower costs in racing and fleets.
