Polished concrete is emerging as the top flooring solution for the industrial market. Recent developments in equipment and application techniques have made concrete polishing faster and more cost effective than ever. This has made it a popular option in new construction, due to its high end finishes and low maintenance costs.
When you take into consideration the extreme durability and life expectancy of polished concrete floors, it is easy to see why concrete polishing has become the industry standard. Whether it's a supermarket, office, or warehouse, polished concrete is becoming more and more popular.
Linoleum, marble, granite, tile, and concrete coatings are quickly becoming a thing of the past, because industrial polished concrete flooring is more budget friendly and elegant. Additionally, commercial polished concrete has a unique sheen and can be color customized to meet the needs of any facility.
Another benefit of polished concrete flooring is that it requires a number of different passes using a diamond grinder, which gives the client plenty of room to determine the level of sheen they desire, ranging from satin to high gloss.
When installed properly, commercial concrete contractors will ensure that your polished concrete floors have a glassy, mirror-like finish. The customization process is nearly limitless, as there are a number of different finishes, colors, patterns and aggregates which can be added to your floor prior to polishing. Even the amount of light reflectivity your concrete polish will have can be completely customized.
The concrete polishing technique can be utilized using a wet or dry process. Every concrete contractor has their preference, however, dry polishing is the technique most regularly utilized today, since it's quicker, convenient, and more eco friendly.
Wet grinding utilizes water to cool the diamond abrasives and limit concrete dust. Since the water diminishes grinding and works as a lubricant, it expands the life of the diamonds. The central weakness of this technique is the cleanup process. Wet diamond grinding makes for a large measure of concrete slurry that is left behind, and discarding it is very laborious. With dry grinding, no water is required. Rather, the floor polisher is snared to a residue regulation framework that vacuums up the majority of the concrete debris.
