Dry Polishing Wet Polishing

The difference in the selection of polishing pads

The direct difference between dry polishing and wet polishing is the choice of polishing pads. Dry polishing uses dry polishing pads while wet polishing uses wet polishing pads. Wet polishing pads with Velcro backing are glued to the joints of the grinder for grinding, and suitable for floor polishing. Dry grinding discs are mainly used for dry grinding construction. It is a processing tool made of diamond and composite materials. Since no water is added during use, it can achieve the polishing effect of wet polishing pads. It has great advantages in saving water resources and is widely used in some floor grinding and renovation projects.

The difference in construction process  

Wet polishing is to sprinkle water on the floor before polishing, and then use the grinder to polishing the floor. During the polishing process, the wastewater needs to be treated with a water absorber immediately, otherwise it will affect the polishing effect. Dry polishing is to use grinder to directly polish the floor under construction. Generally, large-scale grinding machine is used. The machine has a large width and heavy weight. It not only has good cutting power, but also has good floor flatness after grinding. The gravel and dust produced after grinding can be cleaned up with a vacuum cleaner during the grinding process, or they can be pushed together after the construction is completed and then cleaned up.

The difference in construction environment  

Wet polishing on the floor has no fly ash and does not need to be vacuumed, the environment is clean. However, wastewater will be generated during wet polishing, and each process needs to be sprinkled water, collected and treated with waste water. The process is more complicated. Dry polishing will be dusty during construction, which will cause environmental pollution. Constructors need to wear dust masks.

The difference in polishing effect  

Because the wet polishing pad is polished deeper, scratches are not easy to appear. The luster of wet polishing is softer and more beautiful. In contrast, dry polishing is relatively shallow, and the amount of dust is relatively large, and scratches are easier to appear. Under natural temperature, the gloss is soft and smooth, and the color is bright. But under high temperature conditions, the instantaneous heat generated by friction has a destructive effect on the crystal structure of the stone, so the luster produced by dry polishing is dazzling, ablated and not transparent enough.

The difference in usage cost

Dry polishing pads are more durable and can save more costs. Because the wet polishing pads are soaked for a long time, they will be consumed very quickly, and if they wear too much, the use cost will increase. In the case of wet polishing, the curing agent polished product is soaked in water for a long time, which will have a certain impact on the reaction and performance of the product.

It cannot be directly stated which is better between dry polishing and wet polishing. From the perspective of construction technology and polishing effect, it is better to use wet polishing. But from the perspective of construction environment and cost of use, dry polishing will be better. TransGrind diamond tools is engaged in manufacture both dry diamond polishing pads and wet polishing pads which are suitable for most of the grinder on the market.
