The quality of the Weha 3 Step Hybrid diamond polishing pad system is changing the way fabrication shops are operating
The Technology developed behind these 3 step diamond polishing pads is truly an advancement that will change the fabrication process.
In the past, we all knew that in order to get a real deep quality polish, 7 step diamond polishing pads couldn’t be beat. Then we started seeing 5 step diamond polishing pads. Sometimes they worked on light materials. But when it came to dark granites, we would get good results but still have to use a buff pad.
So when the 3 step diamond polishing pad system came along, many of us thought:”what is this gimmick? It is possible to work on light materials but the polish will not be there, especially on dark stone”.
In reality if you use less expensive 3 step pads, you may not even get that.
In a 3 step diamond polishing pad system, quality and the price will truly set the pads apart. Cheap simply will not work.
When we take the Weha 3 Step Hybrid diamond polishing pads to a shop, we hear that the fabricator has already tried a 3 step pad and it didn’t work. And they are skeptical to try it. But we ask the fabricator to go get a piece of black or brown engineered stone, or a white marble, or a black granite and run a 3 foot section with the Weha 3 Step Hybrid diamond polishing pads and just see the results.
After seeing the results, he will call every fabricator in the shop has to come over and see the finish. If you run them you will just shake your head and can’t believe that 3 pads will give that depth of gloss and polish.
We are not talking about on light materials. That is just a given. We have seen the results on: Black Absolute, Baltic Brown, Uba Tuba, Every dark piece of Silestone from gray to black to brown.
Marble: absolutely! Why buy separate 4, 5, or 6 step marble pads? Let the shop use the same pads on all the stone that comes through the shop.
What about Dry polishing?
There are times that you want or have to run pads dry. The Weha 3 Step Hybrid diamond polishing pads will polish marble and granite completely dry with outstanding results.
You cannot use them on Quartz materials. The heat generated burns the resin in the quartz.
Quality at a very competitive price
As with any premium quality product, price cannot be equal to inferior made products.
As the old saying goes: you get what you pay for.
That saying is extremely true in 3 step pads.
You cannot manufacture 3 step pads using cheap materials, inferior diamonds, and poor quality resin and get the results needed to generate a quality polish.
Weha 3 Step Hybrid diamond polishing pads will only be made using the best diamonds, materials, and resins. Frankly when these pads are made, price is not the concern. Polish, deep polish, fast polish, polish on marble, polish on granite, polish on quartz. That is our concern. Speed, polish, production, quality. That’s it.
The end result with the Weha 3 Step Hybrid Diamond Polishing Pads:
1) Better quality finish than traditional 7 step pads
2) 40%-60% faster shop production
3) 1 pad to polish marble, granite, quartz stone
4) Priced at the traditional 7 step quality polish pad price
Benefits for you as a fabricator:
1) No worries about the quality of work going out of your shop because of pad issues
2) Drastic increase in shop production. Get more footage out the door every single day
3) Using 1 pad, the fabricators in the back get extremely familiar with pads and can get greater efficiency and life out of the pads.
4) Using 1 pad it makes it more simple for purchasing, less cost in multiple types of pads
5) The cost per Linear foot will be the same or less than buying the 7 step pads.
As a note of caution: Be careful who you give the Weha 3 Step diamond polishing pads to in the back for testing. If the guys are hourly they will NOT like the pads!
If the guys are being paid on production or subcontracting let them test the pads.
You very well may see different results..
Weha wanted the fabricator to cut their polishing process in half the steps, saving 50% labor, doubling production, while improving the quality of the polish.
Weha 3-Step diamond polishing pads have fully achieved this with results that have to be experienced to believe.
Add a Position 0 pad for very aggressive removal if desired (not included in set)
