Why ACI?

Industries - Non-Ferrous Metals


One of the mysteries of cryogenic processing is that the process affects non ferrous materials such as copper, silver, titanium and others.

Honeywell carried out research on thin film magnetic memory wafers. They found that there was a relief of residual stresses, and an increase in the conductivity of the metal layers of the wafer.

We found an increase in conductivity of copper. It is well known that cryogenic processing can increase the life of copper welding electrodes by a factor of two or more. The typical failure mode of these electrodes is thermal cyclic fatigue.

One Japanese owned auto maker in the southern US has found significantly increased abrasion resistance in aluminum. Racers find that aluminum resists fatigue failure and increases the resistance of pistons to detonation in racing engines. Of course, aluminum baseball bats have been treated for years by athletes who want the best.

The stereo industry has found really interesting results in silver and copper wire. Cryo treatment of vacuum tubes is well known.

Beyond metals, the treatment of plastic items is still gaining momentum. CD's just plain sound better. Phenolic gears exhibit a huge life increase. Nylon shows greater stability and greater life.
