BV Products has released a variant of the isotropic super finishing and polishing process for the race car industry.
ISFP is a process that changes the way traditional machining operations, such as fine grinding and lapping, leave metal components.
The latter processes render the surface as a series of parallel or unidirectional machining lines of micro peaks and valleys that causes lubricating oils to lay in the “valleys” leaving the higher “peaks” to come into friction contact with mating parts.
The subsequent high friction, wear factors and loss of power output are obvious from this circumstance.
ISFP is a relatively new process that combines the long established ability of mass finishing processes to create isotropic surfaces that are multi-directional (this spreading lubricating films over a wide area) with a non-invasive chemical process that renders the surface of the metal super smooth.
