Kryo range takes the already superior M2 High Speed Steel
to new heights of performance with a ground breaking metallurgical
processing technology. Unlike the hard surface coating (e.g.Titanium
Nitride) of blades that diminishes as it gets worn away,
the Kryo treatment significantly improves the strength,
hardness and wear resistant characteristics throughout the
treatment is an advanced cryogenic technique that changes
the structure of the whole blade; put simply a blade is
subjected to a complex immersion procedure at very low temperatures
(as low as minus 195C) to produce an ultra fine harder (martensitic)
structure, supported by fine carbides.
In practical terms this means wear resistance and therefore
the retention of a good cutting edge, is increased by at
least 2 to 3 times longer than would be the case, even for
M2 high-speed steel tools.
blades treated in this way, perform very favourably with
more exotic, and costly materials, such as ASP 2030, but
at a fraction of their price.
new range is easily identified by the Kryo logo. However, to experience the
remarkable performance difference is but one step away,
you only need to try one to know there's no going back.
