When you are browsing tools and materials to be used on a construction site, it can be hard to decide which products are the best to invest in. Diamond cutting discs, diamond core drill bits, diamond blades, diamond core drills and angle grinder discs are all common tools and materials used on a construction site. Using high grade, high quality equipment means that staff are able to do the best possible job. This will ensure productivity remains at its highest and the materials costs stay as low as possible. Using the best products will also give you the best chance of keeping your health and safety standards high, when combined with essential training.
Here are some brief descriptions of some common construction materials:
Angle Grinder Discs
When you're using an angle grinder you will need to consider which equipment you use carefully. The material being worked on will determine the best disc for the job. If a disc is not designed to be used on the material you're grinding or cutting, you could damage the disc, the grinder or yourself and those around you.
When you use a high grade grinder, this can be a very costly mistake to make.
Here are some example of different types of angle grinder discs:
● Polishing pads
● Wire brush
● Stone grinding discs
● Sanding discs
● Abrasive discs
● Diamond blades
Often the price of the discs will indicate its level of quality. You get what you pay for and the cheaper discs will generally not last as long as the more expensive versions so it is worth investing in the higher quality types.
Diamond Core Drill Bits
Diamond core drill bits work on hard material and although the drill bits are designed to deal with these hard materials, you still need to use specific drilling techniques in order to make the drilling effective. When you use the wrong techniques your drill may overheat, and you may damage your drill and the material you're drilling. When drilling you need to concentrate on speed, lubrication and pressure. All of these factors must work in harmony in order for the drill to work properly. If the drill becomes hot, you are drilling incorrectly. The heat should let you know you're using too much speed, too much pressure or you're not using enough lubrication.
