Thank you for purchasing our 100 micron ( orange) Diamond Resin Plate. This is a medium coarse abrasive. It should serve you very well for thinning metal behind the edge and restoring chipped and damaged edges.
This is a bio friendly resin. Both the resin and the pigments are made with FDA approved food safe materials. The binder and pigments are also compostable. Please note that the diamonds will not degrade.
We are using a triangular hole pattern to increase cutting speed and make grooming the surface of the plate more efficient. We recommend our NL-4 lapping plate for this operation. This plate requires very little water for sharpening. In fact, you can use it dry if you like. The resin will take on a very small amount of water as it is slightly hydrophylic. Please let it dry after use before putting it away.
*Don't store it in Water
*Don't leave it out in the sun
Peace and good Sharpening
