What are polished concrete floors

TABLE OF CONTENT

Polished Concrete is concrete that has been processed through different mechanically ground “grinding/polishing” steps using professional equipment specifically made for concrete polishing. The final stage to achieve the truly “polished look” demands the use of a concrete densifier or hardener that penetrates the concrete, strengthening it, making it dustproof and scratch-resistant.

Your truly Polished Concrete floors are versatile interior finishes that can give your floors that elegant and attractive appearance. They shine like marble and can be dyed to match your décor. In reality, Polished or honed concrete is one of the end results that occur when concretes are processed. This means that there are three main categories of processes, including grinding, honing, and polishing. It is possible to stop the concrete process at any of these stages, according to the desired result.

To deliver the best service, we begin by evaluating your property and helping you select from a wide range of polished concrete flooring available. We might work with you, your architect, builders, and contractors depending on the size of your project to implement the right polished concrete steps that meet your needs. Although we can stop at your desired concrete processing level, our highest concrete polishing level involves five main steps:

Our very first step in your concrete floor polishing process is grinding. It is also called the preparation step for those who wish to go beyond this level. Here, we’ll remove the latent on your top surface using diamond tooling to unravel the aggregate. We’ll also ensure your concrete surface is smooth and even, which means removing all scratches and uneven spots. We also use polyurethane repair systems to fill out cracks if necessary and epoxy grout for surface imperfections ready for the next step honed concrete

At your request, we may apply stains to your concrete slab. This is the stage where your customization needs are fully achieved. Thus, we’ll talk to you about the diverse staining options suitable for your project.  We may also add densifiers, especially if you are using your floors commercially to achieve a more durable, hard-wearing floor.

Depending on how far you want to go with the polished concrete surface, this might also be your final stage. If you are looking towards a truly polished concrete, then at this stage, you’ll see a recognizable shine as your honed concrete floors come to life.

At this stage, we’ll work with you to determine the most durable and aesthetic results. We’ll use resin grits from 800 to 3000 to achieve the gloss level you desire, which can be a matte finish, medium, or high gloss finish.

We’ll polish your floors with a sealant (resin) to achieve a brighter or natural look that is also slip-resistant.

CONCRETE GRINDING

In reality, Polished concrete is one of the end results that occur when concretes are processed. This means that there are three main categories of processes, including concrete grinding, honing, and polishing. It is possible to stop the concrete process at any of these stages, according to the desired result. 

Concrete grinding is the lowest category and is done to slabs of concrete to give no or very slight reflection and low sheen. A grit abrasive of approximately 50-grit resin is used at this stage. At Drytec, we use a diamond floor grinding technique alongside dust controlling machines to efficiently remove all particles, and cover severe or deep scratches and unevenness in your concrete and reveal as much aggregates as needed.

HONED CONCRETE

Concrete Honing is the next main category or step done after concrete grinding and uses about 100 to the 400-grit resin. The end goal is to have a concrete surface with slight clarity or matte outlook and can be made to deliver low medium or high sheen. 

Honed concrete floors are usually external floors around residential spaces or restaurants because they beautify the outdoor area while being practical and durable. They have a smooth, satin-like, velvety touch that is also resistant to slips, unlike washed concrete or pavers. Drytec uses high-quality honed concrete floors products and sealants to deliver a surface that is resistant to damage, erosion, or corrosion.

CONCRETE POLISHING

Concrete Polishing is the highest category of processing concrete. It demands approximately 800-grit resin to 1,500 or 3,000 grit to deliver a mirror-like clarity and high gloss finish. Our concrete polishing process is performed using an extremely fine graded abrasive diamond disk.

 machine running at different speeds to derive the perfectly polished appearance according to your taste.  Depending on your budget, Drytec can deliver the patented HiPERFLOOR polished concrete finish.  It’s a perfect choice for residential or industrial spaces because it is durable and entirely slip and scratch-resistant.
