The Polisher

The Polisher is a commercial grade machine that has been evaluated by The Ohio Department of Transportation. It prepares asphalt samples as required when testing for long term traction validation. Standard asphalt samples are prepared for testing by The Polisher in a controlled process. The consistency of the process is critical when comparing data with other samples or correlating data for long term performance.

The Polisher is proudly manufactured and assembled in Northeast Ohio.


Any combination of or all accessories may be purchased with your Polisher or separately.
