Polishing

Polishing is the final step before evaluation of your sample and usually consists of two separate steps. Polishing and final polishing

 

Polishing

It is normally done with 3 µm diamonds, and generally with a soft polishing cloth like Aka-Moran-U for soft to medium hard materials, and hard polishing cloths like Aka-Silk or Aka-Ramda for any other materials.

 

Final Polishing

is done with oxides on most materials, and diamonds in the case of very hard materials like ceramics.

 

Type of carrier

A wide range of diamond products is available suiting a variety of specific uses. In general Pastes or Sticks are used for preloading a polishing cloth. During polishing, diamonds are usually dosed with a combination product like DiaMaxx or DiaDoublo.These suspensions with built in lubrication are a very convenient way of working and gives reliable results.

 

Economy

A more economical way of dosing is real suspensions like Aka-Poly and Aka-Mono in combination with separate dosing of lubricant. This allows for precise and economic dosing of diamonds. Few diamonds when working with soft materials or small samples, and much diamond when working with hard materials or large areas. An even more economical way is Aka-Poly+ and Aka-Mono+ instead of the normal suspensions. These highly concentrated suspensions require only 50% dosing of a normal suspension.
