Default cryogenic treatment

I'm a big fan of cryogenically treated brake rotors, I'm currently using a set which have held up very well.

I believe your rotors are heat treated; would there be anything wrong with cryogenically treating your rotors? Would it be useless in light of the heat treatment?

We believe and work along with the natural property of the rotor, in which when a brake is applied the rotors are heated up. Our proprietary heat treatment process works exactly like this.

The casting (a rotor before machining) is heated up to a per-determined high temperature, and gradually cooling off. After cooled down to room temperature all possible deformation (warp, crack) would have happened during this process, the casting was then machined (become rotor).

Heat treatment also can relief stress and improve the micro-structure of the casting making the rotor more resistant to wear and last longer.

Although customers may want to have their rotors cryo treated at their own option but it's beyond our recommendation.

So it sounds like your heat treatment has many of the reported benefits of cryo-treatment - improved microarchitecture, resistance to warpage, better wear etc...
