Concrete is one of the world’s most used materials and is found in almost every construction project. Because of its chemistry, it is one of the only materials that with time become stronger and harder. Polished concrete is a vastly growing market and, has come a long way in the last decade or so. With new technologies in diamonds and resins, polished concrete is now becoming a very appealing finish to existing and new concrete floors. Polished concrete has a glossy, sealed, and natural looking appearance. Contractors use heavy duty planetary grinding machines connected to H.E.P.A dustless vacuums, with the use of diamond cutting heads, the top layer of concrete is removed to expose the aggregate. Once a desired look is achieved the operator switches from diamond metal cutting heads to a resin bonded head where the polishing steps begin and the result is a smooth, high sheen, sealed and natural looking concrete floor. Polished concrete is a floor that is environmentally friendly, user friendly, aesthetically pleasing, and durable.
