Hi-Tech Diamond Smoothing Discs, Sponge Pads, Backing Plates and Glass Grinder
 

A note about Hi-Tech Products:  Our diamond smoothing discs ensure rapid removal of scratches and high spots on cabochons. They also smooth large, flat areas in channel inlay work and are perfect for smoothing, refining and polishing a wide range of material such as glass, gemstones, synthetic material and even metal. These diamond smoothing discs are the same discs that come with our All-U-Need and Slant Cabber lap machines.

Using a propriety technique, a high concentration of premium diamond is loaded onto each disc to provide an extremely aggressive grinding rate yet leaves an exceptionally smooth surface finish. Each disc is color coded to easily determine what grit the disc is. These smoothing discs are guaranteed to out-perform silicon carbide sanding discs and other diamond compound finishing systems. Depending on the care and material you are working with, these discs on average will last for 100-200 pieces. They do not crack or peel either.

We have both 6" and 8" diameter smoothing discs available. All discs come with a 3M pressure sensitive adhesive backing that bonds to backing plates, flexible discs and polishing heads. Our sponge pads may be inserted under these smoothing discs to create a soft touch for cabochon work.
