CPS Diamond Tooling Guide

To help in choosing the correct CPS diamond tooling for a number of grinding or polishing jobs, we’ve put together a one-page, full-color CPS Diamond Tooling Guide outlining seven of the most common removal and polish jobs, the right tooling, recommended machine speeds for each job and the average production per hour that contractors can expect.

Attributes of CPS Diamond Tooling

CPS Black Series (first 3 tasks): Black series metal bonded tooling is a traditional trapezoid-type tool that is soft bond. Life expectancy is an average of 8,000 to 10,000 square feet. Available in 6,16, 30/40, 60/80 and 150 grits.

CPS MACH Series (task #4): The CPS MACH series tooling cuts like resins and wear like metals. They don’t glaze up on hard concrete and can replace metals on 90 percent of floors. They are built tough, with an 8,000 square foot life span, increasing production over 100% as compared to dry metal bonds on hard concrete. MACH tools need no water, taking on hard concrete and grinding down to exposed aggregate if needed.

CPS Sektors (last 3 tasks): CPS Sektors are one-size-fits-all tooling that works equally well on soft, hard or medium floor surfaces. Sektors combine reduced labor costs with excellent tooling life to create the lowest cost per foot dry polishing system on the market.
