Polished concrete is the hottest trend in flooring as it allows you to turn any drab grey concrete area into a durable, dazzling space with a unique color, pattern, or shine.
This polished look is achieved by grinding the top layer of concrete with diamond discs, much in the same way sandpaper is used. The diamond grit becomes finer and finer until the desired luster is achieved. These are represented by low-satin finish (400 – 600 grit), medium-gloss finish (800 grit), high-gloss finish (1500 – 3000 grit). During the polishing, a densifier is added which helps further strengthen the floor. Finally, a protective coating is added to the top of the finished surface.
A B Floors & Restoration uses an industrial planetary grinding/polishing machine that has a HEPA dust containment system to grind and polish the floor to the perfect level. Here are some popular uses of polished concrete in Orlando:
Industrial warehouses and storage facilities are a natural choice for concrete polishing because the refurbished surface can withstand heavy traffic from equipment and requires little maintenance. Concrete polishing involves preparing the floors with diamond grinding and applying an epoxy or polyurea application which both protects and beautifies.
