2” Cerium Oxide Polishing WheelDiamond Pacific
Install these Cerium Oxide Polish wheels to finish your works in a much cleaner and neater way than messy pastes on your polishing discs. This wheel eliminates the mess of loose powder. Use these polishing wheels to give your stones a super fine polish.
These wheels are built similarly to our beloved foam-backed Nova wheels, with a cerium oxide polishing belt affixed to the foam backing. For a non-commercial volume rockhound, Diamond Pacific suggests a lifespan of 3-5 years, but your mileage may vary based on what you cut and pressure applied to the wheel.
The primary benefit of these wheels is found when cutting stones with pits or absorbent matrix... gembone or ocean jasper, anyone? The typical slurry-based polish residue staining of undercut or porous areas in your stone can be avoided since it's an impregnated belt with water. HOWEVER, when the wheel is brand new they may create a small amount of the paste-like residue, but your wheel will run clean once the application layer of polish from manufacturing is worked into the belt.
