Diamond lapping film

Diamond lapping film

These self-adhesive lapping films consist of a tough 125 µm (1/8 mm) thick polyester film with a uniform, waterproof diamond coating. The diamond coating produces a precise finish on even very hard surfaces. Besides tools, many materials such as metals, plastics, rubber, and wood can be effectively ground with these films. Use the films with oil or water, or dry. Commercial sharpening lubricants can also be used. We recommend wet applications for a longer film life and a smoother finish.

This diamond lapping film is excellent for sharpening and honing hardened hand tools with a hardness of up to 60 HRC. The sheets can be easily cut with scissors and affixed to any suitable flat surface, eg, plexiglass sheets, glass panes, stones or wood.

Use sheets with a grit size of 30 µm for grinding the edges of chisels, plane blades and knives – whether carbon or alloy steel – in double quick time. To finish off the tools with very fine edge use sheets with a grit size of 9 µm. With the diamond lapping film, you can achieve results at least twice as quickly as you would with comparable grit size in water stones or alumina abrasive sheets.

In addition, 60 and 80 µm grit sizes are ideal for dressing water stones.
