Description

Diamond-grinding, concrete and cement screed polishing service.

The polishing process:

  • Undertake the initial floor preparation works to ensure the floor surface is in a uniform state and is flat and free from surface materials or imperfections.
  • Floor surfaces are diamond ground using horizontally rotating discs with the exposure level of aggregate determining the amount of grinding and grit level used.
  • Honing the floor surface with diamond polishing tools or pads using grit size 150 to 200.
  • The floor is treated with a chemical densifier (differs dependent on project) which penetrates into the concrete and creates a reaction to help harden and dust-proof the surface.
  • Polishing with diamond-polishing tools and polishing pads.
  • Finished to a grit level of 400, 800, 1500 or 3000 depending on the level of shine and exposure level of aggregate required.
  • Optional stain protection is applied to the floor after the final polishing stage.

After polishing, concrete floors will have the following benefits:

  • Easy to clean, hard-wearing, and will not require the application of further floor-coverings.
  • High resistance to foot traffic.
  • Anti-slip properties.
  • High light reflectance, helping to open up spaces.
  • Reduced dust mite, allergen and mould problems.
  • Sustainable flooring solution, utilizing existing materials.
  • Cost effective maintenance.
  • Vibration free for vehicles.
  • Spark and fire-proof.
