|Dynamic Labs’ Pro Edge 3 Finish Blocking Pads
Thanks to their firm green foam substrate material, Pro Edge 3 blocking pads reduce slippage and twisting during high torque edging. Pro Edge 3 works on all coated and uncoated lenses and easily and cleanly de-blocks. 888.339.6264, DynamicLabs.net.
|OptiSource Cad-Con 1000
Adding 4 ounces of Cad-Con 1000 treats 5 gallons of alloy tank wastewater by acting like a magnet to attract and chemically bind with dissolved particulate cadmium and lead. Once metals are bound, they are unable to become soluble again and remain trapped in the sediment in a chemically stable state that leaves water clear and free of cadmium and lead. Cad-Con 1000 also treats other alloy-contaminated wastes such as block washer waters, swarf sludge, coolant, polishes and emery. 800.678.4768, 1-800-OptiSource.com.
