The Adamas SluriBand™
Did you ever accidentally speed up your polishing lap (80 rpms and above), throwing off the slurry? You had to take extra time to make a new polishing slurry on the lap and it costs more money when you use a diamond slurry.
The SluriBand™ is a silicone rubber band designed to fit around the circumference of a polishing lap, creating a soft barrier around the edge of the lap.
The SluriBand™ will not chip your stones and is easy to wrap onto or remove from your polishing lap. On a flat, rigid surface, simply stand the dry lap on the side along the inside centerline of the dry SluriBand™.
Pull the forward part of the band around the front circumferential section of the lap and fix it at the top of the lap with your left hand.
Then, pull and stretch the backward part of the band around the remaining uncovered circumference. Adjust the band so it is straight and centered around the lap and you are ready to mount it on your machine.
You may need to lower the height of the SluriBand™ above the lap when polishing the girdles of narrow and small diameter stones.
FOR USE ON SLURRY-BASED POLISHING LAPS ONLY AT ROTATIONAL SPEEDS BELOW 200 RPMS. DO NOT RUN A LAP WITH A SLURIBAND™ ABOVE 250 RPMS.
