The Advantages & Array of Diamond Tooling Options

Diamond tooling cuts into concrete and other surfaces using diamond grains that are bonded onto special parts of surface preparation equipment. Because the diamond is considered a super-hard material, diamond tooling has many advantages compared to tools made with common abrasives such as corundum and silicon carbide.

In addition, the concrete, rock or steel you need to cut into are also some of the hardest materials known to man. To cut through them with precision, you need something even harder. Diamond tooling fits the job.

Diamond Tooling Comparison Guide

We carry a wide array of diamond tooling for concrete surface preparation and concrete polishing available as private label and from leading manufacturers such as Husqvarna, HTC, CPS and STI. We’ve also created this quick-read, full-color Diamond Tooling Comparison Guide to help you choose the right diamond tooling for your job or project. Take a look:

Whether grinding and polishing old or new concrete floors, our products combine advancements in the latest diamond technologies, planetary floor grinding equipment and floor treatment products that help you transform your floors into highly abrasion-resistant, incredibly dense, smooth and visually appealing surfaces.

Advantages of Diamond Tooling

If you need tools to get a slab ready for new VCT, epoxy, urethane concrete, carpet or concrete polishing, diamond tooling can offer a range of advantages:

  • High grinding efficiency, low grinding force: Less heat is generated by the hole in the grinding process, which decreases or avoids burns and cracks on the surface, the equipment’s wear and energy consumption.
  • High wear resistance: Diamond tooling’s change in dimension is small, performing with good grinding quality and precision.
  • Long lifespan, long dressing period: This can greatly increase the work efficiency, improve the work environment and decrease labor intensity.
  • Low comprehensive cost: Diamond tooling is designed to yield the best possible productivity and cost per square foot for the contractor, so that he or she has the best chance at being profitable on every job.
