The Beginner Lap Bundle

The Matrix polishing lap

Beginning faceters often wonder which laps to start with. Adamas answers the call by offering two versatile laps to provide almost universal pre-polishing and polishing.

The Matrix was developed by Adamas founder, Tom Smith, to provide faceters with a predictable polishing session, flat facets and linear facet meets.

This lap has a permanent microporous surface which accepts oxide or diamond powder for a fast polish at slow lap speeds and a narrow sweep.

The Matrix lap can polish gem materials 6 Mohs and harder without the possibility of scratching due to contact with a hard lap surface.

The Zinc+ chargeable lap

The Zinc+ chargeable lap is the most aggressive of all laps at removal of material. Charge this lap with 1,100, 1,500 or 1,700 mesh diamond compound for a surface finish ready for polishing.

Charge it with 3,000 or 4,000 mesh diamond for a finer pre-polish on competition stones.

Adamas offers these two laps at a nice bundle price.
