HTC makes it easier to choose the right tool for grinding concrete.

Report this content

HTC's series of metal-bond diamond tools for grinding concrete are receiving a thoroughgoing update. Four new series of tools, covering all types of concrete grades, makes the choice of tool easier for floor grinders.

The diamond segments have been given a uniform design within each series and a new, thoroughly tested, composition increases stripping during grinding by up to 30% and service life by 40%.* This results in better economy for the floor grinder.

The new tool series have the names S, M, H and X, where the names are intended to indicate the type of concrete for which they are best suited. From soft to the hardest concrete (S = "Soft", M = "Medium", H = "Hard" and X = "Xtremely hard"). The areas of use of the tool series overlap, which makes the choice of tool easier and simplifies the process for obtaining the desired grinding result. The SMHX tools will replace HTC's tools in the C, CA, SF and CX series. The H and X series are available from today. The S and M series will be available for delivery during spring 2014.
