What is Concrete Polishing?
Concrete polishing is a relatively new flooring option that is environmentally sustainable, using currently present concrete to keep it eco-friendly. Polishing is the process of progressively grinding concrete and then smoothing it to a hard reflective finish. This flooring option offers a large amount of versatility, as concrete of any age can be polished, which not only creates an aesthetically pleasing surface, but makes it much more durable and low-maintenance. Polished concrete achieves its sheen through grinding, akin to polishing a stone. Its shine is much clearer, more resistant to wear, and will last about 7 times longer than topically sealed concrete.
BENEFITS OF POLISHED CONCRETE
The process of grinding, densifying and polishing the surface eliminates dust from efflorescence that causes many epoxies and coatings to fail.
the process of densifying and polishing tightens the molecular structure of concrete. This reduces porosity protecting the surface from water, oil , chemicals, grease and heat
densification increases strength and long term performance
Enhanced Light Reflection
tightening molecules in concrete causes light to reflect off surface.
reflection brings wall colors into surface enhancing decorative appearance.
Coefficient of Friction exceeds OSHA recommended guidelines.
