Cryogenic Metal Treatment for Motorsports

Cryogenic treatment of your metal motorsports components can extend parts life and promote performance.  The cryogenic metal treatment process uses a computer-controlled program that gradually reduces the temperature of automotive parts to -300°F and keeps them at this cryogenic temperature for 24 hours.  By doing this, cryogenic metal treatment promotes a transformation of retained austenite […]

How Does Cryogenic Deflashing Work?

Cyrogenic deflashing removes mold flash from plastic and rubber parts for improved appearance and performance. There are three different versions of this surface finishing process. The first, known simply as cyrogenic deflashing, freezes parts and blasts them with plastic media. The second, cyrogenic tumble deflashing, combines the advantages of cryogenic deflashing with dry ice deflashing, […]

Cryogenic Deflashing for Molded Parts

Cryogenic deflashing for molded parts removes mold flash from hard-to-reach areas such as cross-holes, blind holes, and other difficult geometries. During the plastic or rubber molding process, flash or flashing can occur anywhere that metal meets metal – especially as mold tooling wears. Plastic and rubber molders can remove these surface defects through hand or […]
