Default Cryogenic Processing!

-Would you like your brake pads and rotors to last 2 to 3 times as long as they normally last?

-Would you like your drivetrain and suspension parts to be stronger and more durable?

As a race car shop, CTI-Distributing has come across a technology that has allowed us to do all of the above. Cryogenic processing, probably known by most of you, has long been used in motorsports racing to provide parts with increased durability, strength, and longevity. It is not uncommon for our race cars to run entire 25 hour endurance races on the same set of cryogenically treated pads and rotors. Cars sometimes even run the entire season with the same set of rotors! Transmission gears (hint: weak trannys in those WRXs), axles, and differentials also benefit greatly from being cryoed. The obvious benefits of cryoing are sizable long term cost savings.

Cryogenic processing is a thermal cycling process that incorporates state of the art computer controlled equipment to consistently monitor and control the product's temperature in a very controlled state. This produces an even distribution of relieved stress in the material that extends the durability and longevity of the product. In essence, cryogenic processing realligns the molecules of a product to produce greater dimensional stability, fewer hot spots, more consistency, and increased heat transfer. Nearly all drivetrain, suspension, and brake components benefit from being cryogenically treated.

CTI-Distributing is able to provide this race technology to the general public at reasonable and un-race like costs.

Special Introductory pricing is available now:

under 12" diameter: 2 rotors and 4 pads: $52.50
under 12" diameter: 4 rotors and 8 pads: $87.50
over 12" diameter: 2 rotors and 4 pads: $75.00
over 12" diameter: 4 rotors and 8 pads: $125

There are several more applications. For more info, details, and pricing, please PM or email. Thank you.

Could i get some info on suspension cryoing? I got some Tein Flexs going on soon, and was wondering if these couild benifit from this method as well before i install them...? Waiting for you info, Z in TX.

Haha! I just had my nylon pantyhose done! Thanks Unabomber.

420-Rex: The struts will not benefit from being cryoed, and it's probably not very safe to cryo them anyways since the contents are pressurized. The springs however will benefit. Cryoing them will make them last longer, sag less, and retain their sproinginess better.

$20 for the gears and $25 for the shafts and forks.

These prices seem rediculously low...if I was building up an engine i would certainly have this done to all the parts. You havnt mentioned the benefits of it on a turbo...i've read in one of the typical car magazines about how some guy that races the dirt truck things did it to his turbos and they lasted like 20 times longer.

Can this be done to parts that are already in use? Just curious if a differential could be dissasembled and cryo'd.

unabomber i looked at your faq before posting this.

now this may be the wrong place to ask, and if so please excuse my ignorance. my question is if cryo treating is so wonderful why doesnt subaru use this process on the sti gears? as i understand it they are carburized (heat treated) and shot peened, but not cryo treated.

the reason i am skeptical about cryo treating is because a friend of mine had a brand new wrx 5 speed gear set cryo treated and installed by rallispec. he was running utec/pump/injectors/fp green and stock top mount and he destroyed 2nd gear from a roll with only a few thousand miles on the trans.

im just posting this because he was told that by cryo treating the gear set it would hold a substantially higher level of power and that proved to not be the case. it was a huge financial set back for him and almost caused him to have to sell the car. im not an expert and dont claim to be im just going from personal experience and i think these are legitimate concerns.

so what do you guys think?

Thanks for mentioning that Jeff. A turbo will definitely benefit greatly from being cryoed because of the constant heat cycling and amount of moving parts it has.

As far as the prices, they are done by weight and we wait until we have a full load to run the machine. That way, we are able to keep costs down.

A differential could be disassembled but it would have to be cleaned before it went into the machine. Cleaning gear oil or viscous fluid off a set of gears or pinions in a differential would not be fun.

The turnaround time depends. We try to run the machine at least once every 6 weeks but it is contingent upon how much stuff we have that needs to be cryoed. We wait until we have a full load so that costs can be kept down.

so what do you guys think?
If I may comment on the matter, cryoing gears will allow them to hold a substantially higher amount of power. However, there is no way to tell if the product has been treated visually (except for maybe some WD40 on the product). I'm not implying that your friend installed gears that weren't actually treated; I'm simply searching for an explanation. Also, cryoing something will not make it indestructable, it will make it stonger. With enough abuse, cryoed products will break just like untreated products; it will just take longer. Bottom line: cryoing a product is not a license to abuse it. I do not know the details of your friend's situation so I will reserve comment. In my humble opinion, $20 for a gear set for a 5spd, and $25 for the forks and shafts is a risk worth taking (with documented benefits) to make a gearset last twice as long.

With regard to shot-peening and carburizing, I would guess that STi does not use cyroing for a couple of reasons. First, it is a more expensive and time consuming process than the other two techniques. Running a small cryo machine is quite expensive (because it uses liquid nitrogen) and the process takes 72 hours. To do all the gear sets that Subaru puts in the STi would take a lot of time and money. The cost benefit gain of cryoing a product for a street car is probably minimal. Secondly, cryoing is a newer and less accessible process than shotpeening and carburizing. Perhaps in 10 years, cryo-treating things will cheaper, more accessible, and commonplace.

I'm not sure what you mean by "responsible" but if you send us your gears, we will cryo them when we next run the machine and get them back to you as soon as possible. I estimate that the machine will be run within the next 4-5 weeks. Thanks.

We will be doing a cryo load in either the first or second week of January so if anyone has anything they'd like cryoed, please let me know ASAP. Thank you.

Hey all,

The machine was run this week but it looks as though it may be run again soon because we have some engine parts we need to cryo for one of our race cars. If you are interested in getting something in on this next load, please let me know and I'll put you on a contact list. Thanks.
