There is a growing demand for alternative methods of flooring that offer long life, durability and ease of maintenance. This has brought about an expansion of the implementation and use of polished concrete floor systems. Places such as aircraft hangers, museums, cafes, shops, factories, gymnasiums and residential houses can benefit from industrial-strength polished concrete floors.
Polished concrete is achieved by a process in which concrete is diamond-ground to a desired look. The grinding exposes very little stone “fines” to large amounts of stone. Then, by use of special resin diamonds, the concrete is highly polished to a fine gloss finish. Densifyer chemicals are added to increase its strength, durability and protection. Stain resisters are also added. The gloss levels are created by burnishing the polished concrete. Because there is no topical coating its extremely hard wearing and does not scratch. There are now new full water-proof polished systems available for concrete floors. These give a reliable no-staining floor surface – which is not always the case with all concrete polishing techniques.
Concrete flooring is used in many places which see the daily pounding of many feet. Concrete is used because it resists damage from regular wear and abuse as well. However, concrete can look dull, and if left to sit without a protective polished surface it will absorb stains from food, gum and dirt. By contrast, polished concrete floors have a beautiful sheen and have even found a place in residential design where they can look very attractive. Polished floors reflect light better than many other floor materials. Cleaning is easy as well, due to the a very smooth surface of a material that can be made resistant to stains. Simple mopping with soap and water is usually enough to bring back the shine of any Superfloor polished concrete floor.
Concrete polishing has become the flooring choice of the 21st century, a design with an aesthetic appeal and outstanding durability and lifespan. It is popular in private homes, commercial and industrial flooring situations. Polishing concrete is economical and almost indestructible when compared to other conventional flooring methods.
