The 43 Series V.E.S.P.A. Pad has been designed for demand in the concrete polishing market. A Value Engineered Simplified Polishing Application is an economical alternative to traditional concrete polishing when smaller budgets need to be met but a densified/hardened/refined surface is needed for the end result. Universal Polishing Systems has infused our proprietary 07 Series GTO Hybrid semi-metal bond matrix into our diamond encrusted 40 Series Hurricane Pad. The V.E.S.P.A Pad is designed to use on burnishing/buffing equipment as well as automatic scrubbers. A faster cut, faster hone and faster polish is the result. The V.E.S.P.A Pad is ideal on new, flat concrete. It is designed to open, hone and polish/refine; it is in no way intended to flatten a concrete surface. For older, uneven surfaces, the concrete should be processed with traditional grinding equipment and tooling in preparation for the V.E.S.P.A Pad to complete the polishing process.
The 43 Series V.E.S.P.A. Pads may be used wet or dry and will open the surface of flat concrete and hone the surface to properly accept a densifier/hardener and continue to hone and polish to 1500 grit ready for guard/sealer. The more aggressive grits (30, 50 and 100) are ideal for quick mechanical preparation for coatings and overlays. Quickly refurbish/re-polish existing, well-worn, improperly maintained densified/hardened concrete. There are many uses within a proper maintenance schedule and ideal on auto-scrubbers, swing machines and burnishers.
The V.E.S.P.A. Pads have many uses and applications. The entire pad is coated with a diamond powder of the same grit as the infused 07 Series GTO Hybrid semi-metal bond. The pad can be flipped over and used to as a cleaning or burnishing pad. Please read cautions.
