Know All About Surie Polex Diamond Polishing Pads
When they hear the words "diamond polishing pads" most people don't know what they are. There are, in fact, a lot of misconceptions out there.

Let's begin with a somewhat textbook definition. Diamond polishing pads are resin bonded diamond abrasives used for the grinding and polishing of natural stone, engineered stone and concrete. The word diamond in the name comes from the synthetic (man-made) diamond powder that is used to make these polishing pads. Synthetic diamond powder is the best abrasive grain available for grinding and polishing of stone.
Diamond polishing pads are basically bonded abrasives. Various types of resins are used along with synthetic diamond powder to make the diamond polishing pads that are so popular today. There are two main types of diamond polishing pads available today. The first type (known as DCRPD, Figure 1) has a plastic holder and the second type has a hook-and-loop back.

The most popular diamond polishing pad by far is DCRPD and it is used with hand held high speed angle grinder machines. It is mainly used for edge polishing of granite. The other popular diamond polishing pad (known as DCRF, Figures 2, 3 and 4) are also referred to as a flexible polishing pad. This is because they are thin (typically in the range of 2mm-5mm) and the hook-and-loop backer used allows them to flex easily. These are used for a wide variety of applications like marble, granite and concrete polishing and on many different machines such as a floor polishers and hand polishers. Finally there are even thicker pads (like DJ3R, Figure 5 or DJ4R, Figure 6) that are made for specialized applications like floor polishing of concrete.
