Mechanical Polished Concrete Flooring
The number 1 “Eco Friendly” floor surface available
Concrete polishing, liquid densifiers and a series of bonded abrasive stages transform the wear zone producing varies levels of gloss and reflectivity. To put this in to context, take a piece of glass lightly abrade the face and the reflectivity of the glass is now dramatically reduced. This relates to the clarity and reflectivity of high quality mechanical polished concrete flooring. Reducing imperfections and correct densifier application enables the surface to be highly refined. In turn, this results in a long lasting high performance floor.
The flexibility and design medium for your project, facility and residential properties alike can in most cases provide the end user a mechanical polished concrete that is long term superior to top sealer or coated finishes.
Preparing and treating concrete to be a lasting investment takes many years and tens of thousands of square meters to be efficient and effective. Certain level of required knowledge and understanding the performance capabilities of the selected treatment and products separates the long term quality.
Concrete floor polishing is a craft requiring a unique skill set in its own right. Combining uniqueness, technological advancements with customisation affords us to be adaptable. This in turn offers a range of concrete polishing procedures to better suit the end users environment.
Certain aspects of the Designed Polished Concrete (DPC) by Ultimate Floors processes and Husqvarna Polished Concrete range may require a processing upgrade to achieve the desired outcome can only be determined from completing a project “Mock Up” for visual appearance and sheen level.
The Mechanical Polished Concrete Process
A 4 Step Process...
2. Permanently dustproof/harden/seal with various molecule sized liquid densifier treatments,
3. Further dry honing & polishing steps to the specified gloss level required,
4. Protect polish surface with polish guard or liquid repellent impregnating sealers.
The Steps Explained...
Concrete density and surface hardness are important factors even when coatings are applied to a prepared concrete floor surface. Early planning is important when choosing new concrete as a floor finish. Recommendations by your concrete polisher are important to ensure the specified finish is achieved.
Excellent results can come from a variety of concrete pre-mixed suppliers without handing over hundreds of dollars per cubic meter of concrete to get a unique look.
