Surface Treatments

CPS (for nitrided steel rings) and CPG (for nitrided cast iron rings) are chemical passivation processes. They reduce the risk of microwelding through a controlled modification of the surface morphology to create shallow micro-depressions and remove grinding mark ridges. They also have a favourable effect on corrosion resistance and fatigue strength.
