Heat sintered in a mold with a durable resin compound, these discs are extremely flexible with consistent performance.

Frequently Asked Questions:
Q: What materials can I use Ceramica Resin on?
A: Ceramica Resin is designed for use on granite only.
Q: Why do I need to use the 60 Grit Ceramica Vitrified or Metal Bond disc?
A: The 60 grit Ceramica Vitrified disc is necessary to remove saw marks and grinding marks. If the 60 grit disc is not used, the 150 grit will have to work exceedingly harder than necessary and will have a reduced life.
Q: Can I use Ceramica Resin discs on my Makita tool?
A: Alpha® Ceramica Resin is designed to be used wet and at a low RPM. Ordinary angle grinders are much too fast and will cause the discs to burn. Only a water-feed machine will supply enough water to the Ceramica Resin discs. Do not try to run on high-speed machines that run above 4,000 RPM.
