Grinding Stones

The C06 and C10 is a coarse grade and one of the most popular and provided the maximum material removal rates. They are utilized for general grinding and the removal of trowel marks., hight spots and rought sections on concrete surfaces. The average servise life is approximately : 4 to 10 hours

The C24 is a medium grade stone that will result in a lower material removal rates. It is utilized for finer finish grinding of concrete and rought grinding on terrazzo and other tyes of stone floor configurations. The average service life is approximately: 6 to 10 hours.

The C80 is a fine grade stone the will result in still lower  material removal rates. It is utilized for polishing concrete and medium grinding on terrazzo and other tyes of stone floor configurations with a water/slurry mixture only. The average service life is approximately: 8 to 20 hours.

The C120 is a super fine grade stone the will result in still lower  material removal rates. It is utilized for final polishing concrete and medium grinding on terrazzo and other tyes of stone floor configurations with a water/slurry mixture only. The average service life is approximately: 40 to 75 hours

 
Material:
Silicon carbide as the abrasive medium and a clay binder as the matrix.
Application:
Remove up to 1/8 inch material thickness. The larger the number, the finer the grain structure and usually, the smoother the resulting finish
Finish:
Coarse to supper fine grades available
Hints:
C10 stone most popular. Water and slurry minimizes clogging. Do not use to remove any thickness of paints, adhesives, epoxies, etc because of clogging characteristics similar to sandpaper.
