Dry Polishing E/S (Engineered Stone)

Does anyone make a pad for dry polishing engineered stone?

low speed PVA wheels might be your best bet. We have a 3 step diamond pad set that works ok on the darker e/s, but haven't had much luck on the lighter stuff.

I've used 6" hook and loop wet/dry disks on a variable speed grinder. It takes a little time but it will work.
