The use of high-pressure water jets, which may contain abrasive powder, for cutting and removing materials. For example, water accelerated up to twice the speed of sound [343 m/s (1125 ft/s) at 20°C (68°F)] can penetrate and cut rock in a few seconds. Among the methods of cutting metal and nonmetallic materials, pure and abrasive water-jet cutting techniques have a distinct advantage because of their versatility and speed. They can cut all materials, including hard-to-machine materials such as super alloy, Kevlar, and boron carbide. They can also easily cut aerospace materials such as graphite composite and titanium and brittle materials such as advanced ceramics, granite, marble, and glass.
