Concrete Polishing

concrete polishing

Concrete polishing is a fast and inexpensive method of grinding and polishing pre-existing concrete surfaces with diamond sharp disks in order to create smooth attractive flooring. Concrete polished floors are rapidly gaining in popularity in the flooring industry for a cool contemporary look, while being at the same time exceptionally hardwearing and low maintenance.

StoneMaster® technicians have extensive experience polishing existing and new concrete using our state of the art equipment to suit your polished concrete requirements.

Polished Concrete

Is that really concrete?

Concrete will typically not conjure thoughts of beautiful and aesthetically appealing environments; still we use concrete almost without exception in every building we construct.

Long relegated to life as a sub-floor, interior concrete slabs are mostly hidden under flooring materials such as carpet, hardwood, vinyl or ceramic tile, but why waste resources and your money adding another layer of flooring when you can simply leave the concrete exposed?

When considering the life-span of an overlayment, the process represents expensive installation, ongoing maintenance and eventual replacement costs, however in all circumstances the underlying structural concrete remains. Polishing concrete eliminates the need for overlayments by converting the actual existing concrete into an economical, durable and low maintenance finished surface with spectacular visual appeal.

How is it done?

How does the concrete become so shiny?

Concrete polishing is a fast and inexpensive method of grinding and polishing pre-existing concrete surfaces with diamond sharp disks to create smooth, attractive and highly durable flooring. Existing slabs can be ground and polished to create very hard wearing, scratch and stain resistant surfaces that will not chip or peel and are extremely easy to maintain.

To achieve a smooth, glossy surface, our technicians start by using grinding machines with rotating diamond-abrasive heads to remove the surface layer of the concrete in order to level the floor and remove any deep scratches. Following the initial stage, finer diamond-abrasives are progressively used (usually starting at 40 grit going up to 3,000 grit) to reveal or expose the aggregate within the (new or existing) concrete slab.

Typically, concrete is not considered polished before 400 grit which is known as honed concrete. Polished concrete is normally finished to either the 800, 1500, or 3000 grit level depending on the shine and reflection you desire. Polished concrete is measured in grades and finishes: the higher the grade, the larger the exposed aggregates; similarly, the higher the finish, the shinier the polish.

At one stage during the grinding process, sodium silicate is applied to the concrete in order to increase its density, or harden the concrete. The sodium silicate solution is absorbed into the concrete and fills the pores. A chemical reaction then occurs with the calcium hydroxide in the concrete further strengthening and crystallising the material.

Further grinding with progressively finer diamonds creates a very smooth surface and when completed also provides a high degree of sheen. (The surface instead of having a pitted surface that refracts light will reflect light from off of the floor.)

Because polishing is a multi-step process, you can choose the level of sheen to meet your maintenance and aesthetic requirements, from a satin to a high-gloss finish. This versatility makes polished concrete an ideal flooring material for a variety of applications.

Polished Concrete Floors Are Versatile

Because polishing concrete is a step-by-step process, business owners and home-owners alike are able to choose the level of shine, from satin to a very high gloss finish. This amount of versatility makes StoneMaster concrete floors an excellent flooring option for a variety of different locations. Some of the most common places you’ll find our polished concrete floors include:

  • Restaurants
  • Hotels
  • Garage floors
  • Living Rooms
  • Schools
  • Warehouses
  • Retail stores
  • Office buildings
  • Car dealership showrooms

If you're installing a new concrete floor, the choices of textures, colours, and finishes are nearly limitless. Texture and finish are determined by the grade of concrete used, how it's poured, and the polishing process. Colour can be introduced in several ways: Pigment can be mixed into wet concrete to achieve any desired colour (coloured aggregates, too, such as stones, marbles, and pieces of glass, can be added), or an acid- or water-based stain can be used to colour dry concrete.

WANT A FLOOR THAT LOOKS AMAZING, IS EASY TO CLEAN AND DURABLE?

Polished concrete can range from a paste polish, where the final colour is uniform with no aggregate visible, all the way to a deep polish where large aggregate is exposed, closely resembling terrazzo.

  • Cream polished concrete floor
  • This is a very popular style that simply polishes the cream at the top level of the concrete not exposing any of the sand or aggregate. A cream polish will give you the smoothest and most consistent sheen possible, which is easy to clean and maintain. Cream polished concrete finishes can range from low gloss matte to a high gloss mirror finish.

  • The salt and pepper polished concrete floor
  • This look has a fine aggregate exposure and is produced by removing a very thin top layer of the concrete during the initial grinding process to expose some of the sand aggregate. The exposed sand resembles salt and pepper and provides a nice colour accent to the concrete without the addition of stains or dyes.

  • Light aggregate exposure polished concrete floor
  • Medium exposure to reveal the top side of the aggregates. This concrete floor style has a light aggregate exposure with little to no large aggregate exposure spread randomly.

  • Heavy aggregate exposure polished concrete floor
  • Heavy exposure to reveal the maximum size of aggregate. This finish has a large aggregate exposure with little to none fine aggregate exposure which is spread randomly.

Concrete Polishing offers a wide selection of finishes

  • Ground concrete (20 to 100 Grit grinding)
  • Honed concrete (200 to 400 Grit polishing)
  • Low Sheen Polishing (400 to 800 Grit polishing)
  • High Shine Polishing (800 to 3000 Grit polishing)

Energy Efficiency

Concrete floors are ideal for passive solar home designs. Concrete floors shielded from the sun will stay cool for longer and can help to lower air-conditioning costs, conversely in the cooler months concrete floors can absorb the heat from direct sunlight and release the stored heat as needed during the night to keep rooms warmer.

Low Maintenance

Polished concrete floors are low maintenance, harder wearing and more likely to withstand pressure than other flooring option, they do not require aggressive cleaners or brushes to lift dirt away.

Mopping with warm soapy water once a week is the only maintenance required. A concrete floor that has been hardened and polished has an extremely long life expectancy compared to other flooring.

If your polished concrete is situated in a large work space or public area, an auto-scrubber can be used with super soft brushes and a gentle cleaner designed for polished concrete to suspend dirt off the floor and squeegee it up.

Concrete floors are more enduring and easier to clean than most other flooring options. A well maintained, regularly cleaned concrete floor will last for decades.

How to Measure Size in m2:

It is simple to calculate the square metre size of an area.

When measuring rectangular shaped areas. Just multiply the length by the width in metres and you have the answer.

When measuring more complex shapes it is best to divide them into separate rectangles and then add them together to get a total area.
