Cylinder Bore – Extremely Plateau Honed

Extremely plateaud cylinder bore surface texture

In applications such as high performance diesel and some racing engines, an even more extremely plateaued surface is required. In these cases, the plateaued texture described above is pushed to more extreme limits.  The valley texture is created by an even rougher honing process, creating deeper valleys that are spaced farther apart. The plateaus are then created with even finer stones, often producing an almost mirror-like peak structure.
