Polishing Concrete, What is it exactly?
Polishing simply is grinding your concrete with diamond disc pads or resin base disc pads. We use heavy duty rotary type buffing machine with these pads, progressively using finer and finer grit discs to get the desired smoothness and shine (this is like sanding wood with different "grits" of sandpaper to achieve the desired smooth texture to the wood). First using a coarse diamond disc pad, which are coarse enough to remove minor blemishes such as pits, stains or light coatings from the floor. This prepares the floor for a final smoothing. All depending on the original condition of the concrete, this is generally a 3 step process.We continue to the next step using a finer grit diamond disc pad, again using heavy duty rotary type buffing machine. Our technicians use progressively finer grits of polishing disks in a process called lapping,for example a extremely high shine polishing will use a final grit of 1500 or finer; until the concrete floor has the required shine. The decision of the homeowner on the type of shine will determine the progression of the grit of the discs used.
Experienced, our technicians know when to switch to the next finer grit by the look of the surface and the amount being removed. Our Technicians will also polish with a concrete densifier which will impregnating hardeners and grinding bring the best shine out of your concrete. Polished Concrete give the home owner a wide range of colors and design options, Excellent longevity and durability with ease of maintenance. It is also a Environmentally safe material, Eco friendly as it emits not VOC's into one's environment, is not likely to be vulnerable to moisture damage, will be able to radiate heat and store solar energy and will not harbor mold or mildew or other allergens such as dust mites, making this a great alternative for a "Green" home.
