Ceramic media is the most popular type of vibratory media. Ceramic vibratory media offers a wide-range of finishing capabilities. There are a variety of formulations for extremely fast-cutting, medium-cutting, light-cutting, and non-abrasive burnishing processes.

​The compositions range from ultra-lightweight (65 lbs per cubic foot.) to high-density formulations (130 lbs per cubic foot). Most formulations will utilize aluminum oxide grain mixed in the ceramic composition to provide the cut and finishing characteristics.

Ceramic vibratory media is available in dozens of sizes and shape combinations to meet the finish requirements of the parts being processed.
