Substrate Technology Inc. Surface Preparation Equipment for Sale

Based in Morris, Illinois, Substrate Technology Inc. was founded in 1995 by William “Bill” Jones. After spending 30 years as a contractor working in floor covering and preparation, he realized that there were no surface preparation systems that would improve and enhance productivity while offering durability and reliability. Instead, all the “systems” available required additional work by the end user to get the results they wanted.

Inspired by this challenge, Bill created a comprehensive system of floor grinding equipment and diamond tooling that reliably delivers professional, predictable results. From this, the Prep/Master brand of concrete floor grinders and diamond tooling systems were born. For a quarter of a century, contractors, flooring professionals, and concrete professionals have relied on our products knowing they offer unbeatable results and unmatched durability.

When you need a compact floor grinder for use in residential garages, basements, and small offices, the Prep/Master Junior is easy to use in these compact areas while still delivering the power and performance you expect.
