Cryogenic Frets

Recommended Posts

Its a puzzle wrapped in an enigma surround by a mystery.

 

Oh yeah... I seem to remember the marketing on this. Is it gone and not used anymore? msp_confused.gif

Cryogenic Frets - "This NASA-developed process makes metals stronger without making them harder."

 

(If stronger doesn't mean harder what does it mean?)

 

Unless we're talking about stainless or carbon steel frets it does nothing except provide fodder for the marketing department. In steels it can be used to increase the hardness or the tensile strength.

Strength and hardness are not the same at all. In fact, strength isn't anything. It has to be defined. Tensile strength Vs compressional strength. Even hardness could be considered a type of strength. Strength is an unscientific term in this context but it's not complete nonsense (at least, not necessarily).
