Polished concrete floors are an extremely popular – open any home or lifestyle magazine and you’re bound to see an example of it!
Polished concrete give the concrete a smooth matt finish, which is achieved by grinding the concrete surface and exposing the aggregates. Smoother polished concrete surfaces can be achieved through extended honing of the surface, using progressively finer abrasives pads for polishing. This imparts a lustre to the concrete surface that is then locked into place with a surface sealant.
It’s important to note that honing shouldn’t commence until the concrete curing has been completed and the concrete has attained adequate strength.
There are two main types of polished concrete:
- Easy Grind: surface is plain and shiny
- Hard Grind: colour, shape and size of the aggregate can be seen.
