Free Diamond Grinding
Commonly used for:
Preparing concrete for new floor coverings such as V.C.T., roll goods, ceramic tile, carpeting and many
other floor coverings requiring a smooth substrate.
(Can reduce or eliminate patching).
Removing or reducing concrete curls, high spots,
surface roughness, and irregularities in concrete.
Removing most adhesives, sealers, floor coatings,
thin set mortars and even epoxy overlays.
On well bonded ceramic and quarry tile to
deglaze and remove high areas such as tiles sticking
up or bumpy areas.
Enhancing floor flatness and smoothness in most
Deglazing Quarry tile
Dust free concrete grinding is not as simple as most
people would think. It requires specific equipment and
properly trained personnel. Even for experienced
operators there is always some trial and error to
getting the surface to grind properly; experience is a
key element for success. Concrete surfaces vary in
hardness, color, finish and condition; these factors
will determine the types of tooling and equipment used
to perform the task.
The right machinery for the job is important, that is
why certain setups are used in specific situations. Some
machines perform certain tasks better than others.
Design and proper setup of equipment make it easy to
operate, safe and highly productive.
The design takes the power and weight of the grinder and
puts it to work on the floor surface. This works well
because the torque from the large rotating head is
countered by 3 heads turning in opposite directions, thus
putting the entire muscle on the floor’s surface not the
operator. Combined with a multitude of diamond tooling,
it is a winning combination.
Diamond grinding is very
versatile and covers a wide spectrum of finishes from
coarse grinding to highly
polished floors and every
where in between. Dust-free operation is accomplished
with HEPA dust collection systems. This provides removal
of 99.9 % of airborne dust. Also see
blasting for surface preparation.
