How to Use Cup Wheels For Surface Preparation

How to Use Cup Wheels For Surface Preparation | Blades and Bits

In construction, surface preparation is crucial to the first stages of treating a hard surface of building material to increase its ability to adhere to coatings. Coating performance is affected by the quality of surface preparations. Coatings are a vital part of the construction process that provide your materials, like steel, with protection against corrosion. At Blades & Bits, we pride ourself on providing you with top-quality diamond grinding cup wheels that can help you achieve clean and smooth surfaces, with no swirl line finishes, at an affordable cost. With one of our diamond grinding cup wheels you can resurface materials like concrete, granite, steel and more.

Diamond grinding cup wheels are ideal for manual labor job tasks that require you to cover a large amount of surface area. Cup wheels are designed to be durable and reliable during the tedious and aggressive nature of grinding during the resurfacing process. Super-abrasive segments, like diamond, that are attached to their circular shaped metal core helps with resurfacing. Open spacing segments clear the way for debris that has been chipped away from the surface to safely allow your cup wheel to spin faster and cut smoother while you resurface concrete, stone and more. Large diameter cup wheels are more stable and spin faster, while smaller diameter cup wheels are best for smaller sections of surfaces or edges. We’ve put together some of our best cup wheels to help you find the right cup wheel to meet your specific needs.
