Polished concrete is cost effective & a practical solution for any nearly any concrete surface
Concrete polishing transforms ordinary concrete into a beautiful, durable, easy to clean surface. For both industrial and residential
applications, polished concrete is the newest type of fooring available today.
Polished Concrete is the fastest growing industrial / commercial flooring option for concrete
For Commercial locations in NH and Merrimack Valley MA polished concrete is long lasting, cost effective, and low maintenance. From
warehouses, schools, and restaurants to manufacturing facilities, automotive shops, and showroom floors, polished concrete may be the
right flooring solution for your business. The cost saving with polished concrete comes from low total cost of ownership. The only
maintenance needed is to run an autoscrubber on it for cleaning. The same autoscrubber can be equipped with a polishing pad to
maintain the shine.
Natural concrete floors provide long-lasting beauty and ease of maintenance plus additional environmental benefits. It is a breathable
solution for areas that have moisture vapor transmission problems like basements. Unlike epoxy coatings, there is no danger of peeling
or delamination due to moisture vapor.
Understanding Polished Concrete
Concrete polishing has been in use for about 15 years. It was first used in warehouses to eliminate dusting, increase lighting, and to
create a low maintenance, coating-free flooring solution. Advances in concrete polishing technology have allowed contractors the
ability to add color, decorative saw cuts, and specialty aggregate that later gets exposed by grinding. As a result of these advances,
the process of polishing is now being promoted as a flooring solution to other markets such as retail, restaurants, schools, office
buildings, and residential homes.
Concrete polishing starts with changing the existing concrete surface by means of a mechanical process that involves grinding and/or
refining the surface to a desired finish. Abrasives that are measured in grits (much like sand paper for woodworking) are used to grind
and polish the surface. Grits are applied from coarse to fine. Each higher grit increases the smoothness of the surface until the desired
surface finish desired is obtained.
When processing concrete to a achieve a fully polished finish of clarity and durability, up to nine different diamond grits may be used to
get the desired result. It is always part of the process to apply a densifier to the concrete to make it more stain resistant. The densifier
also makes the surface more uniform, increasing the clarity and durability.
The last step is to apply a penetrating sealer to protect the surface. It does not affect the floor shine in any way. The shininess is a
function of the diamonds grits used during the polishing process. This is a true mechanical finish and not a topical or chemical finish.
The penetrating sealer is not film forming so it is much less maintenace. Film forming sealers like acrylics & polyurethanes wear off in the
traffic lanes causing the floor to lose it's attractive appearance. The mechanical polish is the true polished concrete solution. A
chemical or topical polish is where the floor gets it's shine from the sealer (shine in a bottle). It is an inferior solution and will not last.
