REM's ISF® Process significantly reduces wear up to 95%, reduces contact fatigue and reduces lubrication requirements. Finished gear sets have a significant friction reduction that sheds oil faster and offers quicker break-in. Treating gears with this process removes the microscopic peaks in the machined gear surfaces, resulting in a final Ra of 4-6 µin. Quite literally, this means the surface finish is "as smooth as glass", which also typically measures about 4 µin.
A Parasitic Friction Comparison Study done by REM on a T101 Transmission 3rd Gear showed a Six Horsepower gain over a standard untreated gear. The test was conducted using UNICAL 90W gear oil preheated to 180° F. It's very likely you'll see even more HP gain with rear end gears due to their larger friction area.
Important - Please include your contact information including Name, Shipping Address, Phone and Email along with what services you are wanting done to the gears on a sheet of paper protected with a zip lock bag inside the box. This helps avoid confusion and lost parts within the shop. Thanks!
Package your gears in the original manufacturers shipping container. If one is not available, take extra care to prevent pinon and ring gear from banging together during shipment such as packaging them in individual boxes wrapped with foam or other suitable material. Innovators West can not be responsible for your packaging to our facility, we recommend insuring your shipment for it's full value as well.
