ISF (Isotropic Super Finishing)

Get a Quieter, More Efficient Engine with ISF

This is a chemical process of smoothing the surface of certain engine components, namely gears, to an Isopropic Finish

  • Smoother shifting
  • Achieve low RMS finishes without heavy metal removal or radiusing
  • Removing surface peaks while retaining micro valleys for lubricant retention
  • Refine surfaces to mirror-like brightness and very low surface roughness
  • Reduce friction, lower torque requirements thereby reducing operating temperatures
  • Less surface wear, metal pitting and Increase fatigue life

This Process not only can be Performed on transmissions can be utilized on many other moving parts such as:

  • Starter, Idlers and clutch gears
  • Camshafts and Crankshafts
  • Ring and Pinions
  • Valve train components
  • much more

Any time two metal parts come into contact the resulting friction causes heat to build up. These high temperatures lead to wear over time, reduce efficiency, and eventually create the need for replacement

By creating a smooth and shiny finish, the ISF® Process increases the life expectancy and efficiency of moving metal parts. Increased life expectancy translates into both lower operating costs and improved performance. The ISF® Process is a physio-chemical process, using high density, non-abrasive ceramic media and conventional vibratory finishing equipment in which large batches of parts can be processed at the same time.

The ISF® Process removes the surface asperities inherent in machining processes. By safely removing these microscopic peaks, the ISF® Process leaves a highly uniform surface which reduces friction and allows for increased lubrication capability. While the dimensional integrity remains intact, the result is an improved component that will operate at lower temperatures, have increased durability, quieter operation, and increased time between maintenance.

REM's patented ISF® Process has been tested, proven, certified, and is currently in use in many different industries. It is highly successful on parts that operate under extreme conditions. The ISF® Process is used in military applications and is FAA approved. The results of the ISF® Process are undeniable. No matter what your product, the ISF® Process will greatly improve performance, and save time, energy, and money.
