Polished concrete is rapidly becoming the ultimate decorative flooring solution. This high gloss finish never needs waxes or coatings, and it will transform your concrete floor into a beautiful, functional, low maintenance, high performance floor without the use of coatings. It will produce a floor that is slip resistant, very easy to maintain, and less expensive to keep clean.
Polished concrete is smooth, dense and lustrous. It can be polished to a smooth glass-like finish that appears wet, or you can have a brilliant marble-like luster, matte or semi-gloss finish in a variety of colors. The diamond-polishing process transforms a porous concrete floor into a tightened surface, dense enough to keep water, oil, and other contaminants from penetrating the surface.
When a concrete floor is polished, it may look like glass, but it has a higher friction co-efficient than ordinary concrete. Simply put, it is much harder to slip on a polished concrete floor, wet or dry. Polished concrete is able to meet and often exceed OSHA standards for floors. Polished areas can be put into service immediately after the process is complete. Due to the cleanliness of the process and the lack of toxic or hazardous chemicals, there is minimal impact on a business or residence.
