What is Vapor Honing?

Vapor honing is a process used for cleaning many types of materials that allows specific control of the surface finish without damage, removal or media embedment of the surface material. Also known throughout various industries as Vapor Blasting, Wet Blasting or Aqua Honing the process utilizes water, air and an abrasive media combined in specific ratios to produce the level of cleaning and surface finish desired. Wet blasting as it was first known was invented in the UK back in the 1940’s and was primarily used in the Aircraft Industry. Since then the process has been refined and adapted to many other industries where it has been found to produce superior results when compared to other cleaning processes.
