Concrete polishing is the process of grinding, hardening, and honing concrete using specialized diamond abrasives and planetary grinders.
Take a look at our concrete surface preparation specialists in action:
- We start by using 30 grit metal bond diamonds on our planetary grinders then proceeded up to finer grit diamonds until we get to 200 grit.
- Once we get to 200 grit, we can apply a stain to color or create a design in the concrete. Next we apply glass to create a hybrid silicate densifier. This process hardens and intensifies the surface making it abrasion and stain resistant.
- After densification, the concrete is honed at 400 and 800 grit to eliminate scratches from the previous grinds.
- The last step is to apply two coats of a Mira polish sr2 impregnating concrete sealer and stain blocker. The floor is burnished using a high-speed propane burnisher and spin flex 3000 grit heat pad. The end result is a beautiful reflective concrete surface that can be easily maintained!
