Designed to work for wet and dry granite, marble and engineered stone and quartz, the Weha 3-Step Hybrid Polishing Pads can reportedly save fabricators a good amount of time needed to complete a project by reducing the polishing process from the more  traditional 7-step process to only three steps. The polishing pads are made of diamond and high-quality resins designed to produce better quality finish and allow for more efficient polishing, according to the company. And, they are priced in the same range as traditional 7-step polish pad.

Z Keepers Launches GoClips Anchors

Posted on 08 July 2015 by cradmin

GoClipsZ Keepers LLC has launched a line of GoClips “5-Second Anchors” for quickly and easily undermounting sinks. GoClips are designed to make the undermounting process less hazardous while lowering the expense and improving reliability and professionalism. GoClips are slot-based anchoring clips for that require only tools you already have: a grinder and a 4- to 6-in. turbo blade.

To use this new method of sink undermounting, users cut a 1/2-in.-deep slot into the stone that is just wide enough to insert the clips’ down tab. It does not require butterfly cuts, drilling holes, cutting t-31 slots or waiting for epoxy to dry. By avoiding all of these time-consuming processes, users can saveGoClips significant amounts of time, and therefore money, when anchoring sinks.

The self-locking GoClips are designed to engage even before you tighten the screws. The attached spring clip is removable and strong enough to lock the clips in place even upside down. Users can insert a single clip into a slot and actually let go for true hands-free installation. The product accommodates any sink rims up to ¾-in.-thick. A low-clearance version of GoClips is also in production that can be used in tight spaces or near obstructions such as plumbing.
