MK Diamond IXL 5" Vacuum Shroud is designed for concrete and surface grinding dust control. The shroud easily attaches to a vacuum or dust extractor resulting in a cleaner working environment. It controls airborne particles, protecting workers from dangerous crystalline silica exposure. The use of a shroud prolongs the life of the tool by preventing abrasive dust and debris from entering the motor.

Safety

Pending OSHA standards are mandating worker protection from harmful air-borne particles created from drywall sanding and diamond tool grinding of concrete, masonry and stone materials. The dust from these materials is tied to lung cancer, silicosis and other serious maladies. In some areas right now, contractors are not allowed on the job without having a dust-containment system.
