The success of the Chrome Oxide GREENWAY™ Lap has been established in polishing quartzes, excelling with the beryls, and has done well with garnets, tourmaline, the feldspars and peridot. Similar to the Greenway™, the Creamway™ is a Zirconium Oxide/ceramic polymer “Just Add Water” lap. The polymer has further been modified to allow exceptionally high oxide loading.
Why another lap?
Because quartz is one of the most popular minerals encountered by faceters.
Monoclinic Zirconium Oxide is significantly more aggressive and faster than Cerium Oxide on polishing quartzes.
A companion product, the Zirconia BATTSTIK™ has also been released for use on the Darkside and other polymer laps, or can be used as a “Boost” on the Creamway™.
As always, there are surprises. Users have now reported good results on peridot and the beryls.
The Zirconia products are a joint venture with Adamas Faceting, who has been using zirconia with quartz for a long time.
