The right grinding technique and using high-quality equipment are essential to getting the professional results you need, but so is having proper concrete tooling for your floor grinder. Whether you need to remove thick epoxy coatings, smooth a rough slab, or bring your concrete floor to a beautiful sheen through mechanical polishing, we have the tooling you need to do the job right.

Choosing the Right Concrete Tooling

When it comes to finding the right concrete tooling, there are several factors to keep in mind: 

  • What is the goal of your project? Do you need to remove a thick coating, create a rough surface profile to lay down new epoxy, or do you plan on a mechanical polish of the floor? 
  • Do you use water to wet grind your concrete slab or do you dry grind and use a dust collector? 
  • How hard or soft is the slab you are working on? We recommend using hard-bond tooling for softer slabs to avoid wearing the concrete away too quickly while a soft bond will wear away more easily on a hard slab and keep your diamonds from glazing over. 

At Substrate Technology, Inc., we have several types of concrete tooling available for all types of projects, including:

  • Bush hammer attachments to break up concrete and create a rough surface profile and non-slip surfaces.
  • Complete diamond systems of coordinated concrete tooling ranging from rough grit to ultra-fine grit to help you mechanically polish a concrete slab.
  • Individual concrete tooling in a range of grits and bonds to work with both hard and soft slabs and get the results you need.
  • CASH pads for light polishing maintenance and to scrub away dirt, dust, and resin swirls.
  • Cutting tooling to quickly eliminate mastic and thick coatings and create heavy scratch patterns on unopened concrete prior to laying down a coating.
  • Grout pans to fill in pinholes and small voids to prevent damage or premature wear on the concrete slab.
