The multistage cryogenic processes are an advanced type of deep cold treatment. They enable to increase, sometimes very remarkably, the working performance of a wide variety of materials by submitting them to controlled thermal cycles in which temperature drops below -175 ºC.
IK4-AZTERLAN is a metallurgical research centre that has become a European reference in the field of cryogenic treatments. Apart from promoting the research activity in this area, our goal is to spread the technology and to make it available to as many companies and end users as possible.
COUNTLESS APPLICATIONSWherever increasing the performance of a material is required, very likely there is a good chance for cryogenic treatments to be implemented.
