Liquid (Vapor) Honing

The Liquid (Vapor) Honing process is applied to metals for the following reasons:

  • Treat the surface to make it metallurgically clean, prior to electro-polishing, electro-plating, or other coating processes.
  • Remove machining or directional polish lines or marks on such objects as molds and dies for metal, plastics, or rubber.
  • Produce a controlled, microscopically pitted surface to retain lubricant uniformly.
  • Remove microscopic fuzz from cutting edges of tools to reduce flank wear and tool friction.
  • Produce an attractive matte surface.
  • Increase tensile strength and relieve stress concentration through impact.
