Wet diamond polishing pads are designed for polishing natural and engineered stone with a center-feed wet polisher or grinder. Wet pads are faster than dry polishing, can be used at a higher speed, and are generally more durable than dry pads. However, due to flying water and general mess they create, are often not practical for use on previously installed surfaces.
Dry diamond polishing pads are an excellent choice for polishing natural stone. While there is some mild dust, the lack of water for cooling the pad and stone surface makes for easier clean up. Our high quality dry pads will give the same great results and high polish as wet pads, however allow more time to get the job done than if you were using wet pads. Never use dry pads on engineered stone as the heat generated can melt the resin.
A variable speed polisher or grinder works well with dry pads as it allows a lower speed appropriate for dry polishing.
