Our dressing stick is used to open Aka-Piatto before the first use and maintain it by dressing it once in a while afterwards to ensure a continuously high removal rate.
Aka-Magnet is a polymer-based magnetic foil with PSA backing to convert a standard preparation disc to a magnetic support disc. Like this you can use the same preparation disc for several different consumables, which saves you the cost of buying a separate preparation disc for each relevant product i.e. Aka-Piatto, Aka-Allegran, Aka-Largan or polishing cloths.

How do I use the dressing stick to open my diamond grinding disc?
Place the diamond grinding disc on the magnetic support disc and let the disc rotate with 150 rpm. Turn on the water then take the dressing stick in both hands and press it, with the long side facing downwards, gently onto the Aka-Piatto. Start from the center and move the dressing stick slowly towards the periphery. Make sure that the dressing stick gets in contact with the entire surface of the grinding disc. Repeat that a couple of times, then flush the diamond grinding disc thoroughly with water to remove all the debris. Your Aka-Piatto is now ready for use. For dressing the diamond grinding disc in between, repeat the above.
