Hard Concrete (HC) – Softest bond. For use on concrete that contains low amounts of abrasive aggregate.
Medium Concrete (MC) – Medium bond. General purpose concrete.
Soft Concrete (SC) – Hardest bond. For use on Abrasive Concrete (recommended bond for Coastal Areas/Green Concrete).
Omni-Directional Accessories – Accessories are not specific towards the rotation of the disc:
• Can be loaded on both the LH-Left Hand and RH-Right Hand discs.
Directional Accessories – Accessories that are specific towards the rotation of the disc:
• Single Disc Grinders (SEC-NG, TL-9, TG-10 & TMC-7), require LEFT-Hand Accessories only.
• Dual Disc Grinders (2EC.NG, 2GC-NG & 2D-HD) require both LEFT-Hand and RIGHT-Hand Accessories.
**Concrete Surface Profile (CSP) – The surface profile is the measure of the average distance from the peaks of the surface to the valleys as seen through a cross-seciontal view of the concrete surface. The standards are rated 1-9 (1=Smoothest, 9=Roughest)
**See bottom of page for Concrete Surface Profile Ratings Chart.
Magna-Blades – Carbide tipped accessory specifically designed to remove thicker/soft coatings from concrete without grinding the surface.
Generally used to remove tacky material thicker than 1/16″. These materials include glues, mastics, paint and tar.
CSP: 0 to 1
Double Dyma-Dots – General grinding of epoxies, mastics, thin-sets, and other coverings. Leaves clean smooth surfaces with small amount of scratches and no gouging. General Purpose accessory used for a wide range of prepping and removal applications.
CSP: 1 to 2
Dyma-Segs – General purpose aggressive grind. Designed for coating and concrete removal. Leaves clean smooth surfaces with medium amounts of scratches. Available in Coarse Grit only.
Dyma-PCD* w/Backing Segment – Designed for medium removal of hard coatings & waterproofing membrane. The backing segment prevents the PCD from digging/gouging deep into concrete. However, it will slow down the removal rate on thicker coatings. Leaves a medium texture and medium scratch marks on the surface.
CSP: Varies depending on application
GENERAL PURPOSE GRINDING:
Dyma-Serts – General purpose grinding of bare concrete and thinner hard coatings. Ideal for erasing concrete surface imperfections, light concrete leveling, and coatings removal. Leaves clean smooth surface with small amount of scratches and no gouging. CSP: 1 to 2
Single Dyma-Dots – Aggressively Grinds concrete. Removes epoxies and other hard coatings. Leaves a clean surface with medium amount of scratches and no gouging. General Purpose commonly used for removing coatings. CSP: 2
Dyma-PCD* – Designed for heavy removal of hard coatings, & waterproofing membrane. Leaves a rough surface texture and can potentially create heavy scratch marks on concrete. Designed for fast removal of thick coatings and industrial strength coverings. CSP: Varies depending on application
Dyma-Arrows – Designed to remove mastic and glue from concrete and leave a clean smooth surface with medium amount of scratches. Ideal for fast concrete grinding. Not recommended for prepping concrete for polishing. CSP: 2
Retail Grinding Tool – Common surface preparation tasks on general-purpose concrete. Designed for thin-hard coating removal, prepping and smoothing concrete. Leaves clean smooth finish. Use this less sqft tool when application cannot be qualified. CSP: 1 to 2
