BETTER CHOICE FOR FAST CUT ON HARD WOOD SPECIES
Next generation of patented, premium, self-sharpening,
100% zirconia alumina abrasive for longer life, faster cut and
outstanding durability. The anti-static technology increases dust
collection efficiency for a cleaner working environment. The
improved resin bond ensures grain retention under the most
demanding applications. And, the consistent scratch pattern
means the finest finish of the floor.
When sanding pre-finished floors, common sense would say to start by using the coarsest grit available to sand off a very
tough coating. In reality, the opposite is true. By starting with a coarse grit, you will get decreased product life and performance.
The proper sanding technique for pre-finished floors involves sanding the floor first with a finer grit, usually 80 grit. Sand
the finish lightly with 80 grit, just to scratch the surface. Then come back with a coarser grit, usually 40 or 50 grit is coarse
enough to remove the finish. Using this technique will greatly increase product life and cut rate. This technique works for the
edger as well as the belt sander.
