About this site

Diamond grinding is a pavement preservation technique that corrects a variety of surface imperfections on both concrete and asphalt concrete pavements. Most often utilized on concrete pavement, diamond grinding is typically performed in conjunction with other concrete pavement preservation (CPP) techniques such as road slab stabilization, full- and partial-depth repair, dowel bar retrofit, cross stitching longitudinal cracks or joints and joint and crack resealing. Diamond grinding restores rideability by remo

Diamond Grinding – Pavement Interactive

Diamond grinding (Figure 1) refers to a process where gang-mounted diamond saw blades (Figures 2 and 3) are used to shave off a thin, 1.5 – 19 mm (0.06 – 0.75 inch) top layer of an existing PCC surface in order to restore smoothness and friction characteristics. Most often, it is used to restore roadway friction or remove roughness caused by faulting, studded tire wear, and slab warping ...
