What does cryogenic treating do for my rotors? [Top]
Cryogenic treating will increase the useable life of your rotors by 100% to 300% and typically increase the life of your brake pads by 10% - 50%.
Do I need special brake pads? [Top]
No. All brake pads work fine and will actually last longer. We carry a variety of brake pads for different applications.
Do my pads need to be cryogenically treated? [Top]
No. There is no significant advantage to having your brake pads treated.
Can you cryogenically treat my used rotors? [Top]
No. We only treat new rotors. Cryogenic treating of used rotors is not a recommended procedure as internal micro cracks may have already started.
Can I send in my new rotors for cryogenic treating? [Top]
Yes. However the probability is we can provide you a new set of rotors that have been cryogenically treated and ship them to you less expensively.
If I still want to send in my rotors for treatment, what is the cost? [Top]
The cost for cryogenic treatment is $56 per rotor. You will be responsible for the shipping to us and the return shipping charges.
How long does it take for the rotors to be cryogenically treated? [Top]
Orders for in-stock rotors will ship by next business day (although we try to ship on the same day.) However, if we don't have your application in stock and if there are no custom requests, orders placed by noon (CST) Tuesday will ship on the following Tuesday. And orders received by noon (CST) Friday will ship on the following Friday. Requests for custom cross drilling and/or slotting may require additional time.
Do you drill and/or slot rotors? [Top]
Yes. We can cross drill and/or slot your rotors. The cost is $45 per rotor per modification. If both cross drilling and slotting is desired, the cost is $60 per rotor.
How do you ship the treated rotors? [Top]
Unless specified otherwise, we will ship your purchase via UPS Ground.
Can I turn my rotors without damaging the cryogenic treatment? [Top]
Yes. Although we suggest against having your rotors turned for performance reasons, however, the turning process, if done correctly, will not damage or remove the cryogenic treatment.
What are the reasons I would not want to have my rotors turned? [Top]
When you turn rotors you reduce the thickness of the rotor. When you reduce the thickness of the rotor, the operating temperature increases. The consequences of this temperature increase will be increased brake pad wear, increases in the speed of crack growth and you will experience a more rapid onset of brake fade. Therefore we do not recommend having your rotors turned.
I am a racer. Is this legal in SCCA or any of the other sanctioning bodies? [Top]
Yes. The "Frozen Rotors" are legal in SCCA and in other sanctioning bodies such as PCA Club Racing and BMW Club Racing.
There are others that claim to cryogenically treat brake rotors. Are you doing the same thing? [Top]
Yes and No. Sorry for such a vague answer but let me explain. Yes, there are others that freeze rotors but that is where the similarity ends. Here at Diversified Cryogenics we utilize a proprietary 60 hour freezing process that is different from the others. This is why a number of NASCAR, Trans AM, Motorola/SpeedVision Cup and SCCA ProRacing teams as well as many Porsche, BMW, Corvette and other club racers use Diversified Cryogenics for their Frozen Rotor source. We are the leading source of Frozen Rotors for racers worldwide. Use the experts at Diversified Cryogenics for your next set of rotors.
