Recent projects demonstrate a list of specific products from a company that aims to deliver products of a high standard that serve every possible installation need.

More than 700m2 of decorative floor has recently been laid by industrial and commercial flooring technology specialists Cement Technology Industries (CT INDUSTRIES). They made use of a wide range of equipment supplied by Diamond Products who manufacture, assemble and sell diamond tools and equipment for industrial and commercial applications.

According to CT INDUSTRIES’s Michael Pretorius, a substantial amount of grinding work and substrate preparation had to be done to ready the surface for installation of the new 10mm thick terrazzo-look, cement-based flooring product. In order to achieve this and the final finishing of the floor, CT INDUSTRIES made use of the Diamatic range of BMG-435-WD Planetary Floor Grinders, BGS-250 Edge Grinders and BDC-1330 Dust Collectors.

“We worked closely with the team from Diamond Products to select the perfect set of floor grinding and polishing pads to give us the correct combination of pad and speed of cut in the flooring product without dislodging aggregate in the process,” explains Michael. “Diamond Products has exceeded our expectations in terms of equipment and service supplied.”

Diamond Products Director Brian Clark explains that the BMG-435-WD grinder is the ideal machine for this project, as it is designed for surface preparation, concrete grinding, and cleaning and removal of coatings.

The Diamatic BGS-250 single-disc concrete grinder used for this project is designed for small-to-medium horizontal surface preparation applications, as it is easy and comfortable to handle, with low vibrations.

The Diamatic Dust collection systems metal-framed BDC-1330 is robust enough to handle the toughest operating conditions, while ensuring optimal performance and suction. “The Diamatic BDC-1330 dust collector enabled our team to grind all day without releasing any dust,” concludes Michael. “Diamond Products has proven to be more than just a supplier, but a trusted partner that we can rely upon in any circumstances.”
