Our polished floor concrete range is specifically designed for this application and comes in various colours and different aggregate size and colours subject to availability
Polished Floor Concrete
Our Polished concrete range is specifically designed to have the desired properties to enable the applicator to achieve a consistent texture and desirable strengths, enabling the concrete to be polished with. We supply various colours and can supply different colour aggregates to suit your desired style.
Our polished concrete floor mixes are designed to be functional, durable and aesthetically pleasing. We design the concrete to achieve the desired structural strengths as well as surface strengths to improve grinding capabilities. Different mix compositions are used to achieve the desired texture, colour and overall finish. We can suggest qualified and experienced applicators that can help with the specification of the concrete mix.
Polished concrete floor surface is made by a mechanical process of grinding and polishing with the help of a penetrant chemical to provide different textures. The polishing of concrete is a multi-step process that requires specialized tools and equipment. The construction process, features and the benefits of making polished concrete are explained below.
For polishing concrete surfaces, machines that are equipped with diamond segmented abrasives is employed. These machines help to grind down the concrete surfaces till the desired shine and smoothness is achieved.
As the grinding process proceeds, the coarser grit moves to finer-grits. Grits here is defined as the particle size of the diamond. Most of the concrete grinding process starts from a value less than 100. The machines available in the market have grinding discs with different grits.
Sealing the floor:
After the concrete floor has been polished, a sealer is applied which enhances and preserves the finish and also acts as a final protection layer. There are several different sealants on the market and it also depends on the desired finish that you want to achieve. Certain sealants are specifically designed for industrial applications that increase abrasive resistance. Then there are also different ranges of sheen levels that determine which products to use.
We suggest that an experienced applicator assist when making these decisions.
