5″ Sets of Wet Polishing Pads
$83.16 – $164.62
The backer pads that come with a polisher when you purchase it are usually a hard rubber. They are supposedly flexible, but they are designed for granite, not concrete. They are too hard, and instead of flexing will just scallop the concrete. Even worse, if you try to use them as rigid backers, they don’t actually stay flat.
Our rigid plastic backer WILL stay flat, every time. And, plastic backers are less expensive than aluminum and won’t corrode, but still provide excellent performance and flatness. Arbor size is 5/8″ diameter, 11 pitch (5/8″-11).
The 5″ diamond pads have all the features you need for concrete countertops:
- High concentration of diamonds for faster cutting
- Narrow gradation of diamonds for a swirl-free surface
- Thick enough for long life
- Thin enough to be flexible
- Ideal channel design to eject slurry and prevent clogging
- Ideal resin binder for long life without glazing
CCI’s diamond resin polishing pads and diamond hand pads were designed specifically for the concrete countertop industry. These are not pads borrowed from the granite industry that work well on stone but not so well on concrete, nor are they bargain-basement lookalike disks offered because they provide a generous profit margin to the seller. They’re designed and tested by CCI, the most knowledgeable and experienced force in the concrete countertop industry.
These are the best discs on the market. Period. Because we are a training company, not a product sales company, we choose our products based solely on quality and suitability, not on the profit margin they earn for us.
They give you everything you’ve been looking for in a premium polishing disk: versatility, fast cutting, quality finish and long life. Unlike thick, rigid pads, they don’t curl and wear unevenly. The thin pad is flexible, so you can hone flat surfaces and curved sinks with ease. Numerous, wide grooves channel slurry out from under the disc, reducing clogging, premature pad wear and scratches from the cuttings. And tightly graded, premium industrial diamonds cut fast but leave a smooth, scratch free surface.
