Question: Can I skip grits when I polishing concrete?
Answer: It is not advised to “skip” grits. You are not removing the last profile you put into the floor with the diamond pad. Grits steps should not be more than double the last grits value. For instance, if you are using a 50 grit, your next grit should be double the value (100 grit). Moreover, if you skip to the 200 grit and eliminate the 100 grit, you are not able to successfully improve/remove upon the 50 grit pad. You will not have a successful polishing job by skipping grit values.
Note: If you’re working on a brand new floor that is finished very well, you can start at a higher grit. Once the starting grit is chosen, we advise you to not skip grit values as you successively polish the concrete. Therefore, we want to utilize the 200, 400, 800, and 1500 grit.
