15th Sep 2022
WHAT IS POLISHED CONCRETE?
Polished concrete is a multi-step, mechanical process where the concrete is ground, honed, and polished using bonded abrasives to cut a concrete floor and then refined in each additional step to a desired level of appearance.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF POLISHED CONCRETE?
- Superior durability
- low maintenance
- Improved reflectivity and ambient lighting
- Elimination of dusting
- Reduced tire wear
- No production/plant shutdown
- Ideal for areas with heavy foot traffic
WHAT IS NEEDED TO POLISH CONCRETE?
- grinding/polishing equipment
- diamond tooling
- dust collection/slurry management
- accessories for application
Before grinding and polishing the floor must be evaluated and expectations must be discussed. Is the goal shiny? Longevity? Smooth, and easy-to-clean? All of this will determine the equipment, tools, chemicals, and process used. Luckily, you are not in this alone and NIagara is here to help every step of the way!
