Wet Honing 

Unlike dry blasting, the wet honing process is a non-abrasive blast due to the cushioning effect of water. 


Delicate Surfaces 

Very fine medias are used for very delicate surfaces and substrates. 


No Warping 

Wet blasting does not impregnate media into the surface and does not create heat, which eliminates part warping. 


Gentle Refinishing 

Vapor honing is more gentle to soft aluminum than dry processes, yet it will remove a microscopic layer of oxidized metal and corrosion.


Like Brand New 

Vapor honed parts look practically brand new. It can clean down into tight spaces that are very difficult to clean chemically. 

Years of concours restoration experience lead to the discovery of this non-invasive surface cleaning.
