You also went out of your way to have a normal conversation by e-mail. It looks like to me that you Paul care about small companies like me even though I live in NEW ZEALAND and also larger ones. Paul you are a credit to your company and may you go on to build it larger as you deserve it.”

 Diamond Polishing Buttons

 

These polishing buttons have been designed to work with a wide range of grinding and polishing machines.

 

Method for achieving optimum finish/longevity of diamonds – When polishing a new floor you must follow set procedures, missing out stages will result in higher wear rates on diamonds which can prove to be costly. Floors should initially be ground with steel bond diamond segment to remove imperfections such as trowel marks and high spots. Depending on the floor we have a range of grinding segments to match the concrete type.

 

Once the floor has been ground back to an acceptable finish you can start polishing, depending on which grinding segment you used will influence which grade of polishing segment you start with. Normally the first grade of polishing button will be a similar grade as the last steel segment used. 

 

We supply 2 types of polishing diamond, resin bonded and steel bonded. The steel bonded polishing segments give considerably longer life than the resin segments but don’t give as high a finish. To achieve maximum performance and longevity of diamonds it is best to polish the low grit sizes 50-100 and 200 with metal bonded segments, then complete the final polish, 400-800-1500-3000,  with resin bond buttons or pads.

 

To achieve the best finish in the 100-400 range after initially polishing with metal bond segments you should perform a final polish with the resin buttons.

 

Bond – The strength of the metal/resin binder that holds the diamond grit in the segment. Typically the harder the bond the longer the life. An abrasive subfloor will require a harder bond. A harder floor will require a softer bond.

 

Grit – The size of the diamond grit in the segment. Typically the larger the grit the more aggressive the segment will be. The smaller the grit the finer the finish will be.  The higher the number then the finer the finish will be e.g. 3000 grit will give a highly polished finish.

 

 Diamond Polishing Pads

 

Levels of finish.

 

50-100 grit, first stages of polishing, smooth industrial look.

200-400 grit, medium to low polish.

800-1500-3000 git, medium to high polish.

 

An example of a rough grind to a final finish would be as follows.

Stage 1 – Grind away trowel marks with DFG 7-4 Segments, leaving the floor at a 30/40 grit finish.

Stage 2 – Grind with DFG 7-5 or 7-6 to achieve suitable finish initial resin/hybrid polishing segments.

Stage 3 – Polish with resin / hybrid polishing segments 100 – 400 grit.

Stage 4 – Move onto resin bonded diamond pads starting with 400 grit through to 3000 grit

Stage 5 – Optional Seal the floor with a dust proof coating.

 

We also supply a Premium range of diamond segments that feature higher diamond concentrations for longer life and / or higher output. 

 

As a premium product they are priced at £47.28 each. Standard delivery is 7-10 days;  Express delivery can be organised at extra cost.
