Concrete grinding and polishing are smoothing rough hard concrete surfaces to reveal a smooth and shiny finish. This method involves using heavy-duty grinders and diamond-impregnated discs that imitate abrasive paper. Throughout the concrete grinding process, the wheels are progressively replaced with finer grinding wheels to achieve high levels of brilliance or smoothness. As a result, you can quickly crush concrete to create a shiny or matte finish.
The concrete polishing process is the final step in the concrete grinding process, using the most delicate sanding discs to achieve a mirror finish. During the last phase of the concrete polishing process, a polishing compound can be added instead to remove almost all residual stains on the surface and add extra shine to the floor.
Grinding and polishing concrete can produce a much smoother, more distinctive surface that resembles a polished stone when used together.
Concrete grinding and polishing for floors in commercial and manufacturing applications offer several advantages, making floors robust and long-lasting. You have to do less to maintain the concrete floor, thanks to the improved longevity. For example, the surface is easier to clean if food or chemicals are spilled.
Concrete and asphalt grinding significantly improve road quality. The integrity of the entire road surface is not compromised, regardless of how often the asphalt has been ground. Concrete grinding provides a faster road ride, resulting in lower fuel costs and less travel time. A smooth road surface helps minimize noise, while improved texture increases slip resistance, making the streets safer.
What Can You Achieve with Concrete Grinding?
Glue and paint removal
Creating a level floor
Resurfacing and restoration of aged floors
Adding a coat of polish
What is the importance of grinding concrete slabs and floors?
Our company polishes concrete floors to the desired gloss level after finishing them. Concrete pores are opened up and roughened by sanding. Contaminants such as grease and dirt, as well as existing coatings, adhesives, or contaminants, will be removed. Your project will succeed from the beginning because the new surface will attach entirely to the old.
The flooring has traces of paint on it. Can you remove them?
It is challenging to remove paints and adhesives from surfaces. Manually removing this or using chemicals is time-consuming. So instead, we use a concrete machine with sanding pads to make the floor look good. This method is more effective than shot blasting or high-pressure water cleaning.
Can glue be removed by grinding?
When it comes to removing glue, grinding is a quick and effective method. Sanding removes paint and glue, preparing the coating for the next step. If you want a smooth surface, polish it or, on the contrary, add a rough surface to make it easier to adhere to the next layer.
Sanders looks and works differently than other power tools, so how do they work?
Typically, sanders (grinding machines) abrasively wipe concrete surfaces. Different grinding results are achieved by moving the discs in a circle. It results in a rough surface on the top layer of concrete.
How well does a grinder perform?
Depending on your goals and budget, a concrete grinding finish depends mainly on what you want to accomplish. Our highly skilled craftsmen and specialized equipment allow us to offer a wide range of concrete grinding and polishing services.
