Diamond Polish Concrete

What is Polished Concrete?

Polished concrete is a type of flooring that involves grinding down the surface of a concrete slab to achieve a smooth, glossy finish. The process typically involves multiple stages of grinding with progressively finer grits of diamond abrasives until the desired level of shine and smoothness is achieved.

The concrete surface is thoroughly cleaned to remove any dirt, debris, or existing coatings. Any cracks or imperfections may be repaired at this stage.

Coarse diamond grinding tools are used to remove the top layer of the concrete, exposing the aggregate (if desired) and creating a flat surface. The grinding process is typically performed in multiple passes with progressively finer grits of diamonds to refine the surface.

After the initial grinding, finer grit diamond abrasives are used to further smooth the surface and enhance its appearance. This step helps to achieve a more uniform finish.

Once the surface has been honed to the desired level, a series of polishing steps are performed using progressively finer grits of diamonds. This process creates a high-gloss finish and enhances the reflectivity of the concrete.

After polishing, a densifier may be applied to the surface to harden the concrete and improve its resistance to stains and abrasion. A sealer is then applied to protect the surface and enhance its durability.

While every project specification is different, the general steps involved are:

The result is a smooth, glossy surface that can resemble polished stone or marble. Polished concrete is often used in both residential and commercial settings due to its durability, low maintenance requirements, and aesthetic appeal. It can be customized with various colors, designs, and decorative elements to suit different preferences and design styles.

Compared to other flooring options like hardwood or tile, polished concrete is often more cost-effective both in terms of installation and long-term maintenance.

Polished concrete floors have a sleek, modern look that can enhance the overall aesthetic of a space. They come in various finishes and can be customized with different colors and even designs.

The high-gloss finish of polished concrete can help improve lighting in a space by reflecting light, which can reduce the need for additional lighting fixtures and contribute to energy savings. This is especially beneficial in the cannabis industry.

Concrete is a sustainable building material, and polishing it eliminates the need for additional coatings or materials, reducing environmental impact.

Polished concrete floors, with our special topical sealers, are resistant to stains, spills, and chemicals, making them ideal for areas where spills are common, such as kitchens and garages.

Unlike carpet or other flooring options that can trap dust, allergens, and other pollutants, polished concrete floors are easy to clean and maintain, contributing to better indoor air quality.

Polished concrete can be used in a variety of settings, including homes, offices, retail spaces, warehouses, and industrial facilities.
