This is the new version Zinc Plus lap - a laminated zinc pre-polish lap to replace the cast zinc lap.

Highly purified 99.99+ Zinc to which is added grain refiners, tougheners and deoxidizers. Gentler and smoother to use than prior zinc laps, but still more aggressive then the tin alloys. Produces very rapid prepolishes, and has been used for cutting with the “Watercut” Diastiks.  Lighter in weight than the heavy cast laps, they offer better balance, smoother running, and easier, more predictable use due to their finer and uniform grain sizes.

 Zinc Laps offer quick cutting using #3,000 Diamond or fast PrePolish using #8,000 Diamond.  
 
6" Diameter - standard half inch centre hole.
 
These are specially made from safe "NEW ZINC", not old Scrap and offer better results to the Old Typemetal Lap.  They ARE different: faster and more aggressive.  Particularly recommended for pre-polishing corundum, CZ, chrysoberyl, etc.
 
These Zinc Laps also offer a real solution to the ever increasing Tin and Metal prices - faster and flatter Facets at less cost is a winning solution for everyone.  Zinc Laps have been around for decades but results have been variable - probably because most, if not all old types used Lower Grades of Zinc.
 
FACT:   Zinc Laps using High Grade Zinc have never before been offered or used as Laps but instead have been made from lower purity alloys. 
 
These new Laps are receiving Rave Reviews from Cutters across the USA:
