1500 pound electric grinding machines are equipped
with diamond grinding discs that come in a variety
of grits starting at 80-100 and progressing from
3000 -6000 grit.
we start with coarse grit diamonds to remove the "dead
skin" and defects.
we install progressively finer and finer grits until
a beautiful shine develops.
Usually this is a 6 or 7 step process.
If the floor has existing coating or contaminates, then another 2 or 3 steps
applications of Densifier (hardener) will be applied
at the appropriate times.
It's a natural beautiful finish - No wax, no acrylic, no epoxy, and no floor
polish, nothing out of a bucket. Your shine is naturally produced with diamonds
only. Nothing to chip, fade or peel.
to Judge Polished Concrete
straight down between your feet and look at the lighting.
Is it just a foggy glow or can you see the individual lights?
Anyone can make concrete shine at a 30 degree angle and at a 30 foot distance,
but longevity is only obtained when you have clarity looking straight down.
POINT: Clarity and Longevity go hand in hand.
Benefits of Polished Concrete
• DRAMATICALLY LOWER MAINTENANCE COSTS
• END UP WITH AN ECO-FRIENDLY AND "GREEN" FLOOR
• DRAMATICALLY IMPROVE LIGHT REFLECTIVITY
• NO FADING, CHIPPING OR PEELING
• HIGH TRACTION FLOOR (.60 SCOF)
Polished Concrete is absolutely the floor of the future. It is Eco-friendly,
low in maintenance, stunningly brilliant, and loved by everyone that has had
their floors polished properly. However, to avoid disappointment, it is very
important for you to understand the following.
Disadvantages of Polished Concrete
1. POLISHED CONCRETE IS ACID SENSITIVE.
If someone spills muriatic acid on your floor it will dull the finish instantly.
Although it can be easily repaired, polished concrete should not be exposed
to acids or strong chemicals.
We don't recommend our floors in the following applications:
• Citrus Processing Plants
• Aircraft Hangars
• Wine Manufacturing Plants
• Pickle Processing Plants
• Acid Manufacturing Plants
• Outdoor Applications ... Rain is normally acidic (5.4ph) and over time
• Soft Drink Manufacturing
2. POLISHED CONCRETE IS NOT VISUALLY AS UNIFORM AS PAINT OR EPOXY.
Sometimes you will see aggregate, sometimes not.
Sometimes you'll see darker areas. Sometimes you'll notice "spider" cracking.
CONCLUSION: If you don't appreciate the natural beauty of concrete,
then polished concrete is not for you.
