Long Life Beveled Edge Polishing Pads - 9mm Height.Resin Pads.  Used after the surface area has been totally cleaned and smooth.  Depending on the initial condition of the floor, Metal pads may have to be used first.  As you progress through a series of Resin pads, increasing to the finer grits, the pores of the concrete are progressively closed to ultimately result in a retail-like finish.  The multi-step process provides the flexibility for the user to choose how many steps are needed to achieve the desired surface finish.  Use the coarse 50 grit and proceed as you would with your regular floor cleaning routine.  

After a few passes of using the 50 grit, you progress to the next grit.  By the time you reach the end of the process, the floor will transforms into a beautiful, smooth and polished surface.  The multi-step process provides the flexibility for you to decide how many steps your surface needs.  Depending on the type of floor and its condition, as well as the machine's down pressure and speed, the number of passes you make with each grit will depend on the level of gloss you wish to obtain.  

Resin pads are designed to abrade the scratches left from a Transitional / Semi-Metal or Hybird Pads.  With the diamonds exposed on the surface of the resin pads, they quickly sand away deep scratches by the diamonds that are suspended in a plastic matrix.  The plastic matrix is what gives them their less aggressive nature or polishing capability.  While it is true that you can hone with a coarse resin pad, they are not really designed for this task (step) as they will quickly wear under this circumstance (step).  Approximate Pad Life, 9mm Pad Thickness:  5,000 - 8,000 Sq. Ft.

Ceramic Transitional Pads.

Copper Transitional Pads.Semi-Metal (Transitional or Hybrid) Pads.  These pad are significantly more aggressive & provide longer life than the Resin pads.  Depending on the initial condition of the floor, Hybrid Pads are generally used before Resin pads or after rough grinding with Metal Pads or Diamond Cup Wheels.  The Hybrid pads actually start the polishing process as they begin to close the pores of the floor.  

 

Beveled Semi Metal Resin Discs.X Long Life, Semi Metal Resin Discs. Hybrid Pads offer all the benefits of a smooth Resin pads but the advantages of longer life and the aggressiveness associated with Metal pads.  After rough grinding with a Metal pad the scratch pattern typically cannot be removed by a Resin pad, Hybrid pads solve the problem.  Additionally, their life is much longer than resin pads (50,000 to 65,000 sq. ft).   These thicker pads (6mm - 9mm) are used on heavy weight machines such as our 21" Propane Machine.  They are not used on lightweight machines such as our 20" Electric Floor Grinder or auto scrubbers.  On these machines, use the same type of "resin" pad but 3mm in height. 

 

Metal Grinding Tools.Metal Discs.  Very aggressive and provide very fast stock removal of concrete or any type of coating, sealer or mastic.  Metal Discs & Cup Wheels are used when the concrete surface is damaged, has a rough or broom finish, or is coated.  Their grinding performance is very smooth, fast, they will deep grind concrete, remove any type of coating (hard acrylic or mastic without melting) and they provide a uniform, consistent finish.  Approximate Metal Pad life:  30,000 to 50,000 sq. ft.  The 3" Green Metal discs (right) are used on heavy weight machines such as our 21" Propane Machine, while diamond cup wheels are use with our 18" Cup Wheel Floor Plate or hand-held angle grinders.

•  Ceramic Pads (like car brake pads) are your best performing, longest lasting pads - They will not build heat during use which ultimately increases pad life
•  Faster removal of scratch patterns left behind from using metal diamond tooling - Significantly faster than traditional hybrid or semi-metal pads plus much longer pad life
•  Provides the purest blend of diamonds possible without the worry of larger straggler diamonds - Ultimately provides a smoother, more consistent scratch pattern
•  A+ for blending edges with the rest of the floor.
