Concrete polishing is a process that involves grinding, honing, and polishing concrete surfaces to achieve a smooth, shiny finish. The process can be used on new and old concrete surfaces and applied in various commercial and residential settings.
The first step in the concrete polishing process is to grind the surface using coarse diamond abrasives. This removes existing coatings, stains, or impurities and exposes the underlying concrete. After the initial grinding, progressively finer diamond abrasives are used to refine the surface and achieve the desired level of smoothness and shine. The honing process uses a series of increasingly finer abrasives to smooth the surface, while the polishing process uses progressively finer abrasives to create a high-gloss finish. The final step is to apply a concrete densifier, which penetrates the surface and hardens the concrete, making it more resistant to stains, damage, and wear.
