Cryogenic Treatment For Brake Rotors
Cryogenic treatment is a process that subjects materials to extremely low temperatures to enhance properties like hardness, wear resistance, and durability in applications such as metalworking and tool manufacturing.
BENEFITS OF CRYOGENIC TREATMENT FOR BRAKE ROTORS:
- INCREASED DURABILITY: Cryogenic treatment is believed to enhance the strength and hardness of the metal, making the brake rotors more resistant to wear, warping, and cracking. This can lead to longer-lasting rotors and improved overall performance.
- REDUCED BREAK FADE: Brake fade occurs when prolonged or intense braking causes a decrease in stopping power due to overheating of the brake components. Cryogenic treatment can help dissipate heat more efficiently, potentially reducing brake fade and maintaining consistent braking performance.
- IMPROVED BREAK BITE: Some users report that cryogenically treated rotors provide better initial “bite” or responsiveness when the brakes are applied. This can result in improved stopping power and a more confident braking experience.
- MINIMIZED DISTORTION: During the cryogenic treatment process, any residual stresses within the rotor can be relieved, reducing the likelihood of distortion under high heat and heavy braking. This can contribute to improved rotor integrity and reduced chances of warping.
