Grind & Polish
The Grind and Polish system (also referred to as “Diamond Polished Concrete”) is created by grinding the concrete back to achieve the desired stone exposure levels (same as in the Grind and Seal system). After the grinding process the concrete is hardened with a densifier that reacts with the cement, hardens and increases the surface strength of the concrete. The densified surface is then “Honed” or “Polished” to achieve the desired sheen or gloss level. The honed or polished concrete is then sealed with a penetrating sealer to protect it form stains and migration of water into the surface of the concrete. After sealing, the surface is Burnished to remove any surface contamination.
The Grind and Polish system is becoming more widely used and accepted as a far superior system to the Grind and Seal system.
Polished Concrete Floors are the ideal application for residential or commercial floors. The neutral colour of concrete is a great back drop for retail displays. The floors are easily cleaned and offer low ongoing maintenance costs. Floors can be ground back to expose the stone to achieve a decorative finish with character. Alternatively the plain concrete can be highly polished to achieve a blank canvas with interest. Concrete polishing will bring your floors to life
