Description

Concrete floor polishing which involves grinding away the concrete skin and exposing the underlying, stronger concrete, in the form of fine material, gravel and where possible, aggregate. Due to the nature of the concrete construction, the larger aggregate may be exposed unevenly in the surface.

Typically, 2–3 mm of the surface is ground away, the floor is ground smooth and the glossy surface makes the floor easy to clean and more resistant to tyre marks from forklifts and dirt. The light reflection off the surface of the floor also provides a pleasant aesthetic.

The floor is ground and polished according to a well-established and tested method, using planetary grinding machines, diamond tools and in accordance with Denholm's grinding guide. The floor receives a completely smooth and glossy surface with many good qualities, both functionally and aesthetically.

If protection against stains is required, A stain protection is recommended.
