Our proprietary heat
treatment has a two-fold purpose. The heat
treatment strengthens the steel by bonding the carbon,
oxygen and nitrogen in the top layer of the metal.
This is not a coating that can wear off. The steel
itself is transformed. The heat treatment gives
the steel its aesthetically pleasing black appearance
and provides a surface with a high resistance to the
corrosion and oxidation associated with the extreme
thermal cycling experienced in aircraft braking systems. This makes it an excellent choice for
agricultural aircraft that work in a harsh, chemical
environment, as well as anyone who leaves their plane
outside for most of its life.
