Colour Enhancing Sealer for Honed Concrete

colour enhancing sealer

Ultimate floors recently enhanced this Keppera families entertainment area with our external honing process. Adrian & Wendy originally selected the natural finish impregnating seal then switched to the colour enhancing sealer finish you see here after asking our thoughts on how the finish will look when compared the natural patina.

Ultimate Floors recommended the “ENHANCE SEAL” colour enhancing sealer sytem to highlight the natural colour of the mix and bring out the light aggregate colour hues…. what an awesome result, clients are super stoked!

We also need to acknowledge the  skill and attention the concrete contractor took for us to make their work look as awesome as it does. In saying this, the concreter commonly does washed aggregate finishes and had not done a place / finish for follow on honing previously… kudos to crew for actually delivering an outstanding canvas for us to work with.

Our concrete honing is typically completed at 60 grit minimum for inclines exceeding five degrees and wet zones such as pool areas for enhanced traction. Flat surfaces are most commonly completed to 80 – 100 grit surface profile. Do keep in mind that honed concrete requires cleaning to ensure the surface is at the recommenced safe zone for foot traffic, especially when water wet.

When choosing Ultimate Floors – Grinding and Polishing for Honed Concrete, in return we take your objectives and work through suitable options.
