FE Process

Materials the IOSSO-FE Process can be used on:

The unique IOSSO-FE Process can be bonded directly to all iron based metals, tool steel alloys, stellite, stainless steel, brass, bronze, beryllium copper, tungsten carbide, ferro-tic carbide and zinc.

IOSSO-FE Process Benefits:

  • Increases surface hardness up to 72 R.C.
  • Extends base metal life
  • Reduces corrosion
  • Increases life expectancy
  • Increases resistance to wear
  • Reduces friction
  • Increases lubricity
  • Economical
  • Increases production by reducing down-time

Characteristics of the IOSSO-FE Process:

  • No hydrogen faults, cracks or blisters
  • No peeling, flaking or spalling
  • Anti-galling, anti-soldering
  • Non-magnetic, static free
  • Heat resistant
  • Corrosion resistant
  • Reduces maintenance downtime for clean-up of mold base plates and components

Application for the IOSSO-FE Process include but are not limited to:

  • Component wear parts: shafts, gears, cams, rollers, pinions, valves, valve spools, pistons, bearings, seals.
  • Molds, dies, cavities, cores, ejector pins.
  • Blades, knives, cutters, scissors, slitters,
  • Roll forming dies, cutting tools.

IOSSO-FE Surface thickness and coverage:

  • Controlled tolerances range from .000020 to .0005
  • Penetration of base metal up to 15 millionths of an inch
  • Hardness up to 72 R.C.
  • Uniform over complex shapes
  • No build-up on sharp edges or corners

IOSSO-FE Process Part Physical Capabilities:

  • Small parts from 1/4" and up.
  • Large parts from 6 feet by 2 feet.
  • Parts up to 1000# or so, also depending upon size.

Photo micro-graphs of the IOSSO-FE Process:

Photo micro-graph of .00010 thickness penetration into base metal contours with pore-free, crack-free deposit with complete uniformity. The picture shows a cross section of a four flute mill depicting uniformity over a complex shape, with no edge buildup. The bright uniform outline of this end mill cross section shows the Iosso process. Deposit conforms completely to the complex shape of this typical cutting tool.

Life expectancy is 5 to 8 times greater than an unprocessed identical tool and metal plating increases surface hardness for iron based metals.
