The Preferred Polishing Process

The Preferred Polishing Process

Coating Removal

First, steps are taken to remove any remaining sealer, VCT, glue or epoxy that is left on the floor.

Grinding

Passes are made with Metal Bond Diamond to bring the concrete to a uniform finish.

Densification

A densifier is added during the process to increase the abrasion resistance of the floor and to eliminate dusting on concrete.

Polishing

Resin Bond Diamonds are used to polish the floor to the customer’s required level of gloss.

Dying

Penetrating dyes can be added during the polishing steps to give concrete a particular color. Multiple colors and saw cuts can be used to create unique designs.

Sealing

A penetrating sealer is not necessary but can be added to protect from highly acidic, or harsh chemicals that can stain or etch concrete.
