Diamond-bonded segments are a type of abrasive tool that is commonly used in concrete grinding, polishing, and cutting applications. They are typically made of metal and are attached to the working surface of the tool. The diamond-bonded segments are made by bonding synthetic or natural diamonds onto the metal surface using a bonding material, such as metal or resin.
Diamond-bonded segments are used for a variety of concrete flooring applications, including removing surface coatings, grinding down rough or uneven concrete surfaces, polishing concrete to a high-gloss finish, and cutting concrete. The diamond abrasives provide a high level of cutting efficiency and durability, making them well-suited for heavy-duty concrete flooring applications.
Diamond-bonded segments are available in a variety of shapes, sizes, and bonding materials, and they can be custom designed to meet specific cutting and grinding requirements. When selecting diamond-bonded segments, it is important to consider the type of concrete you will be working with, the type of coating you will be removed, and the desired level of gloss for the finished surface.
What is the meaning of soft-bond and hard-bond of metal diamond segment pads?
-’Soft bond’ refers to the metallurgical powders that hold the abrasive material(diamond grit) that would wear fast enough to expose the cutting diamond fast enough.
-’Hard bond’ refer to the metallurgical powders that hold the abrasive material(diamond grit) would prolong wear to reduce the exposure of the cutting diamond.
Rules of Thumb when choosing metal diamond segment.
-Choose a metal hard bond diamond for a soft concrete floor.
-Choose a metal soft bond diamond for a hard concrete floor.
What do we mean by ‘Hard Concrete’?
-Mohs scale of 7 and above using Mohs Hardness Test Kit.
-Difficult to scratch or abrade.
What do we mean by ‘Soft Concrete’?
-Mohs scale of 3 and below using Mohs Hardness Test Kit.
-Easy to abrade.
