Deep Cryogenic Treatment (DCT)

For almost two decades, we have been exploring a cold temperature process called Deep Cryogenic Treatment (DCT). Our research confirms that DCT reduces wear, corrosion, fatigue and fracture on most steels, aluminum and titanium alloys by 20-70%. 

This improvement has been corroborated by US Army labs and independent academic institutions. Although popularized several decades ago by consumer use on items like car brakes, guitar strings and razor blades, the deep cryogenic process has its greatest opportunity in extending the life and performance of platforms such as planes, cars, ships and trains — all of which are subject to constant wear, fatigue, corrosion and environmental breakdown. Another key opportunity exists in the breakthrough field of additive manufacturing, as well as oil and gas drilling and sub-sea equipment, gas turbine and wind power generators, electric vehicle gears and industrial bearings.

Areas of Treatment


consumable machine Tooling

Items are placed in an insulated tank. The tank is surrounded by an outer jacket filled with liquid nitrogen. The inner tank temperature drops slowly as heat is removed from the items by thermodynamic exchange. Once the desired temperature is reached — processes or "recipes" vary for different metals — the items remain in this subzero state before gradually ramping back up to room temperature.

Then they are tempered to eliminate hydrogen embrittlement (a cause of corrosion). During this process, the liquid nitrogen transforms into a gas and returns naturally to the atmosphere, where it comprises 78% of the air we breathe. Deep cryogenic treatment takes between 24 and 50 hours, and it is inexpensive, safe and uses no toxic chemicals.
