Deflashing Glass-Filled Nylon Parts with Nitrofreeze® Technology

Glass-filled nylon parts are injection molded into precise shapes for industrial, medical, electronic, automotive, and aerospace applications. Nylon, a generic name for a category of synthetic polymers, support the production of strong, durable parts; however, nylon typically has poor resistance to heat and ultraviolet (UV) light. The addition of glass fibers to nylon improves these […]

Cryogenic Treatment for Gun Barrels

Nitrofreeze® provides cryogenic treatment services for the barrels of handguns, rifles, and shotguns, including double barrel shotguns and rifles with .50 caliber barrels. Cryogenic treatment reduces stresses and imperfections in the metal’s microstructure for faster muzzle velocity and tighter shot groupings. This one-time, permanent process also increases wear resistance for easier barrel cleaning and reduces […]
