CARBIDE F.A.Q. - SUPPORT - SAFETY

CARBIDE F.A.Q.

Q:
Can I sand a wooden floor using carbide grinding discs?
  Yes, we produce abrasive floor grinding discs. Due to the sharpness of the abrasive disc, we recommend that you start with a finer grit. After sanding part of the floor you can look at the results and determine whether you should increase grit size.
   
Q:
What about lacquered and varnished surfaces?
   Lacquer and varnish are no problem to remove. Just use the machine at low speed with few revolutions and avoid pressing down too hard against the floor, as this will cause the floor surface to heat up and become sticky. In the case of soft lacquers and varnish, stickiness cannot be avoided. But this is not a problem. Just take the pads off, clean them with a solvent and use them again and again.
   
Q:
Can carbide tools be used on steel and granite?
   No, steel and granite are practically the only materials that Carbide tools cannot be used on. The abrasive tools can, however, be used for sanding on the outside of steel - on paint or rust coatings, but not into the material itself, as the abrasive surface of the tools are simply too hard. However, you can sand and grind on aluminium surfaces using carbide tools.
   
Q:
I have different things I need to sand using Carbide abrasive tools. Is there a list of receommended grit sizes?
