Abrasive discs, wheels, and paper are all designed for sanding, grinding, finishing and stripping materials. The type of abrasive you need will depend on the size of your project and the material you are working on. Discs have one side of abrasive particles and one side of a soft material, usually cloth or sponge that can be used for polishing. Grinding Wheels are attached to a grinding machine that can cut, sand, grind and polish the same as an Abrasive Disc, but on a much larger scale. Abrasive Paper, more commonly known as sandpaper, can be affixed to handheld power tools or used by hand for small projects. It is commonly used for removing old layers of paint, finishing wood, or to roughen a surface as in preparation.
Diamond Blades are the sturdiest and most durable blades available. Diamond is the strongest mineral and can grind through almost anything, this is why synthetic diamond particles are used in the blade. The tiny particles are mixed with the metal coating of the blade and the exposed part of the diamond is what grinds the material. These blades are proven to be the safest on the market and are the most reliable when you need a clean and professional cut. Diamond Blades range in size and patterns depending on the material you are working with. At Direct Trades Supply we stock a large range that can be used on Green Concrete, Metal, Asphalt, Ceramic, Brick, Marble and everything in between.
