Polished Concrete Flooring

What is Polished Flooring?

Polishing is a unique, multi-step process of progressively finer grinding concrete or terrazzo floor surfaces through the use of diamonds and high-technology equipment. The polishing process turns an ordinary floor surface into an impressive, beautiful floor with a quality sheen, colour and the ability to prevent water and other contaminants from penetrating the surface.

The polishing process has less impact on the environment than traditional flooring systems. Polishing repurposes your existing concrete or terrazzo floors eliminating the need for demolition or replacement slabs therefore reducing material use. It is a dry, slurry-free process using synthetic diamonds and silicate densifiers with zero contribution to VOC pollutants. Customers can also choose the level of reflectivity for your facility which ease the energy required for interior lighting.

Polished concrete and terrazzo floors also allow for customized, designer-looking floors with various decorative finishes. Use these treatments to brand your facility, help with directional signage or as identification for certain areas. Decorative elements can be added by colouring or staining the concrete, saw cutting patterns or through overlayments specifically designed for polishing. All decorative elements have the same durability and benefits as your traditional polished concrete or terrazzo floors, they just allow for a personal touch.
