Cryogenic treatment is a procedure that consists of subjecting parts to sub-zero temperatures, close to -90°C. This process allows the structure of the material to complete its transformation process, thus improving the characteristics of hardness, toughness, and dimensional stability of the treated parts.

Process Details

Cryogenic Treatment involves the gradual cooling of the material to temperatures as low as -90°C. It is then held at this temperature for a period of time and reheated to room temperature. In some cases, it is complemented by one or more tempering processes.

The TTT Group has the necessary aeronautical certifications to carry out cryogenic treatment, thus guaranteeing compliance with the quality and safety standards required in the industry.

Parts and Components

Cryogenization is mainly used in parts that require high quality standards in the aeronautical industry. These parts, when undergoing cryogenization treatment, acquire greater strength and durability, which is essential to ensure safety and performance in critical aerospace applications.

In addition, this process is also used in the field of metrology, specifically in the manufacture of patterns and gauge blocks. Cryogenization helps improve the dimensional stability of these elements, resulting in more accurate and reliable measurements.

Fields of Application

Cryogenic treatment is commonly used in industry to improve the mechanical properties and performance of critical components. It is used in sectors such as aeronautical and automotive industries, cutting tools, precision engineering, mould manufacturing and metallurgy, among others.
