The process of edging granite requires special cutting
tools in order to ensure the uniformity and the accurate measurement of
granite slabs or pieces. Granite is a composite stone made of mica,
feldspar and quartz. It is considered to be one of the hardest natural
stones to cut, polish and shape.
Sawing and edging granite works in the same way as milling. Diamond
segment blades can be used for edging and sawing granite. When the tool
is used in the factory, the individual diamond crystals, which are
exposed its edges, and the sides of the segment carry out the milling,
so that the granite is edged and/or shaped.
After the granite pieces are edged, the process of granite polishing
follows. To polish granite, you need to make use of diamond abrasives.
These diamond abrasives are attached to granite polishing pads, which
are then used to put a perfect shine on these granite slabs or tiles.
These pads must be used with a variable speed grinder or polisher along
with a water hose.
Edging granite is an expensive process: not only is it due to the high
cost of tools that are required to perform the task, but is also mainly
due to the special skills required.
In businesses that specialize in edging granite a bullnosing bench is
used to make the fabrication of these edges easier on the person
performing the task. A bullnosing bench saves a person time because the
process of edging granite is done onsite instead of having to send it to
a factory. You will discover that after edging a number of granite edges
equal to several kitchens that you will have obtained a return on your
Edging granite pieces onsite will allow edging granite tools to increase
your efficiency, profitability and quality output.
