This is because of a new manufacturing process developed for the stone industry. Normally, skipping steps results in scratches too deep to be polished out. However, our new pad design allows the fabricator to skip steps, saving time and money. These pads are made with the highest quality diamonds, which have multiple angles and a “polycrystalized” internal shape. The diamonds are easily broken during polishing to continuously expose new angles, giving longer life to the pad.
Diamond concentration is 60% of the pad weight in the new 3 step polishing system. This is the highest diamond concentration possible with current technology. Bond strength has been increased to hold the higher diamond concentration, insuring that the diamonds are fully used in the polishing process. By eliminating half the grits normally used for smooth polishing without scratching, the 3 step pads system shorten the polishing process by 50%.
In addition to reducing labor costs, the pads reduce inventory complexity and simplifies ordering. It is designed for granite and other hard stone, and will achieve a shine and high gloss.
