Extend the Life of Tools & Gear with Cryogenic Tempering

When performed correctly, having your metallic tools and gear cryogenically-tempered can help boost tensile strength, toughness and dimensional stability. Cryogenic tempering treatments only need to be conducted once, as the whole item is treated—not just the surface. Additional specifications are available on our cryogenic chamber page.

Welding Applications

After a cryogenic treatment, spot welding tips will carry a longer life, be more wear-resistant, and requires less power input. These treatments also reduce tip burn-off, as well as carry reduced amperage on heliarc tungsten electrodes.
