Toyota Plant Epoxy Removal Interview

An interesting interview with Mike Lucky of Diamonds In the Rough on his experience with removing over 100,000 sq.ft of epoxy and polishing the floor with WerkMaster equipment. Will give you an idea of what is involved in working in a large facility like this Toyota plant.

Diamond Abrasive Tooling for Removing Epoxy Coatings & Finishes

What is a PCD Diamond?
Polycrystalline Diamond (PCD) is a diamond grit that has been fused together under high-pressure, high-temperature conditions in the presence of a catalytic metal. This diamond tool will leave heavy to severe scratch patterns and it is recommended you use a Super Brazed diamond on the same tooling plate when using PCD tooling
