LET US KNOW IF YOU WANT TO MIX AND MATCH THE 7 POLISHING PADS, WE CAN MAKE SETS TO SUIT YOUR REQUIREMENTS.
These diamond polishing pads can be used with any angle grinder to polish a range of very hard materials into beautiful shiny pieces such as kitchen benchtops, concrete hearths, garden art, custom poured concrete vanities etc.
There are 7 velcro backed polishing pads in the set which simply stick to the included velcro backing pad that attaches to your angle grinder. The best control is achieved when using a variable speed angle grinder. The backing pad is flexible so it makes it easy to polish without gouging.
They are designed to be used dry which in most situations is a lot easier especially if a concrete hearth or benchtop has been poured in place and water would make a huge mess. However, if necessary they can also be used wet.
WET OR DRY POLISHING?
Wet polishing eliminates harmful dust but makes a messy slurry that can be difficult to clean up. Dry polishing is convenient but the dust needs to be managed. Either method gives the same finished result. So which is better for you depends on the situation.
