Polished concrete has become one of the leading styles of flooring throughout Australia, it is a fantastic choice for industrial, commercial and residential floors combining the durability of concrete with the stunning aesthetic appeal of natural stone.
Choosing polished concrete floors is not only low maintenance but also offers a sustainable and environmentally friendly option.
Many clients often ask the question, what is polished concrete? Concrete polishing is is a multi-step process where a concrete floor is mechanically ground, honed and polished with bonded abrasives in order to cut a concrete floor’s surface. It is then refined with each cut in order to achieve a specified level of appearance.
This process also includes the use of a penetrant chemical known as a hardener. The concrete densifier/hardener penetrates into the concrete and creates a chemical reaction to help harden and dust-proof the surface. During concrete polishing, the surface is processed through a series of steps which includes a penetrating sealant. Not only will polished concrete stand the test of time, but it can add significant style and value to any residential or commercial property.
