CRYO-REM Finishing Service For Race Components

REM Process Diagram

Redline Speed Worx is Proud to Announce We are NOW offering CYRO-REM (R) race component finishing services via Evans Performance, the leader in the industry.  They are the ONLY Company that has both Cryogenic Processing AND REM (R) Isotropic Superfinishing (ISF) (R) capabilities IN-HOUSE!

Their unique two step process involves the Cryogenic Processing of your Racing Components followed by REM (R) Chemically Accelerated Isotropic Superfinishing.

The Cyro-Rem component service is the ultimate service for the ultimate racing component.  All treated products will outlast & outperform the competition at every turn and every lap.

What is REM (R) Isotrophic Superfinish (ISF)(R)

The REM (R) procedure is not a polishing process but rather a finishing process.  REM (R) is a chemically accelerated process which involves two steps.  The first step, referred to as the "Refinement Process", involves a chemical interaction on the surface of the part.  A soft, thin (one micron) film is formed on the surface of the part.  The part then interacts with the ceramic media in a special vibratory bowl.

During this interaction the film is physically removed from the "peaks" of the processed part and the "valleys" are unaffected.  The chemically induced film re-form only at the peaks that are interacting with the vibratory media, and the process repeats itself.  Over time, the peaks are removed, leaving only the valleys, producing the improved micro finish.  The second step is referred to as the "Burnish Process."  After the required micro finish is achieved, a mild alkaline mixture is introduced.  After a relatively short period a polished, chrome-like finish is produced.  In addition to the polishing effects, this step effectively removes all traces of the film formation from the "refinement" process.

What is Cryogenics?

Cryogenics is a derivative of two Greek words - "Kryos" which means cold or freezing and "genes" meaning born or one that is produced.

Residual stresses exist in all types of parts from engines to tooling.  The stress is introduced into the part at the time of casting, forging, heat treating or machining.  These stresses create an invisible random grain pattern.  Parts expand from the heat generated during operation, the retained stresses cause uneven expansion which results in increased dimensional instability with increased wear and decreased performance.

Deep Cryogenic temperatures are required to effect a complete molecular change in most alloys giving the microstructure a more uniform grain structure.  Deep Cryogenic temperatures distribute large quantities of very hard, fine carbides, that develop uniformly throughout the structure.

Heat treatment of steel involves the transformation from its softer more malleable annealed state to a harder more durable state.  This is done, as it has been for centuries, by heating the steel and then rapidly cooling it.  The result is a harder and more wear resistant object.  The metallurgical reason for this is that as the steel is heated, it forms an austenite (large, unstable particles of carbon carbide) crystal structure or matrix.  Rapidly cooling or quenching the steel (traditionally at room temperature) triggers some of the austenite structure to change into a different matrix called martensite (a more uniformly refined grain structure).  It is the martensite structure that gives tempered steel its hardness and wear resistance for applications from cutting tools to engine parts.

The goal of heat treatment is to transform as much of the austenite as possible into martensite.  However, some of the austenite is retained even after tempering.  Through experimentation it was found that if the quench was lower than the traditional room temperature, less austenite was retained.  Cryogenic treatment is an extension of the well known heat and quench cycle.  Cryogenic Processing is specifically about controlled thermal cycling of materials over a period of up to 72 hours.

The austenite to martensite transformation achieved by deep thermal cryogenics is responsible for the exceptional wear characteristics due to a denser structure and resulting in a larger surface area of contact wiich reduces stress, fatigue, friction, heat and wear.

Cryogenic processing is a one time process, not a coating or surface treatment that can be machined away.  It will not make the component more brittle or change its physical size.

What happens to Cryogenically processed material

  • Cryogenically processed engines enjoy an increase in HP & Torque and prolonged engine life
  • Abrasive wear resistance is increased
  • A denser molecular structure is created in processed parts
  • The resulting stronger surface area that is created reduces friction, hear and wear
  • Allows for rapid cooling of treated parts such as brake rotors
  • High frequency and harmonic vibration is significantly reduced or eliminated
  • Soft retained austenite is transformed to much harder martensite
  • Microfine carbide fillers are formed which enhances the large carbide structures
  • Durability or wear life of processed parts is greatly increased
  • Residual stresses are decreased
  • Brittleness is decreased
  • Tensile strenght, toughness and stability is increased coupled with the release of internal stresses

The "CRYO-REM" Finish Process

  • The first step in the 'CRYO-REM" (R) Service is to Cryogenically Process your racing components.  The Second Step involves REM (R) Isotropic Super Finishing utilizing REM (R) Chemicals, Inc. patented  Systems.  (Applicable for most types of metals including aluminum, stainless, steel, etc.)  The REM (R) process provides an Isotropic Superfinish (ISF) (R) which has a chrome-like appearance.
  • Evans Performance holds the exclusive license from REM Chemicals, Inc. to offer Isotropic Super Finishing services in Georgia.  Evans Performance and our sister Company, Professional Cryogenic Metallurgy & Coatings, LLC are one of the few licensed to provide REM (R) Isotropic Superfinishing (ISF)(R).  They offer  three REM (R) equipment packages which provides the ability to process high volumes of finishing with quick turn-around service.
  • Cryogenic processing of your racing components provides all the cryogenic benefits as described on the "What is Cryogenics" page of this web site.  These benefits include:  Increased HP & Torque; increased abrasive wear resistance; denser molecular structure; stronger component surface; reduction is friction, heat and wear; allows for rapid cooling of components; reduces or eliminates high frequency and harmonic vibrations; relief of residual stress points in components; multiple increases in life of components.
  • Following the cryogenic process we then REM (R) Isotropic Superfinish your Racing Component.
