Understand How Diamond Tooling Actually Works
Apr 07 , 2021

Without understanding how each metal bond tooling option works or does its job, it’s easy to select the wrong tooling unintentionally. That may not seem like a big deal, but selecting the wrong tooling will affect your production rates and the impair the potential quality of your outcome.

Basically diamonds are set in a matrix that interacts with the concrete dust produced in the grinding process and wears down the matrix exposing more and more diamonds as you grind, to continue cutting the floor.

When grinding hard concrete you won’t have the same amount of dust, and the dust can be very fine compared to soft concrete; which results in a lot of dust or larger grindings. Since we know it's the dust that interacts with the matrix on your concrete floor diamond tooling in order to expose the diamonds, the hardness of the concrete is an important factor to consider when selecting tooling. If you choose incorrectly, you may run the machine and nothing happens. The diamonds do not cut due to heating up and glazing over. This happens mostly on hard concrete.

Knowing the hardness of the concrete and understand how each bond hardness works are very necessary in every grinding and polishing jobs. You must pair the appropriate diamond bond with the hardness of concrete you’re working with. And remember the rule that soft concrete requires hard bond diamonds and hard concrete needs soft bond diamonds. Once you understand the concrete hardness, you can easily use the rule to find out the balance diamond use and productivity. This will help you save money and time and also produce optimum results for you jobs efficiently.
