The major benefits of Concrete Polishing

Little-to-no downtime

Polished concrete floors can be used as soon as the process is done, no additional time needed for drying or curing. And Painters USA has worked on many projects without shutting down the facility by isolating and coordinating work, area-by-area.

Cost effectiveness

Polished concrete can be a budget-friendly option as the process involves low material costs. Factor in minimal daily cleaning requirements and long-lasting performance, concrete polishing can save money and time in the long run.

Slip resistance and safety

Polished concrete floors can be very glossy, making them look slippery. Yet as long as the surface is dry, polishing will maintain and even enhance the natural slip-resistance of concrete, plus the added brightness enhances visibility.

Appearance and visual appeal

Polishing significantly boosts the sheen and reflectivity of concrete, creating a lighter, brighter space that looks better and feels safer and nicer to be in. Plus staining and other elements can be incorporated for design versatility.

Energy efficiency and LEED

Polishing revitalizes and extends the useful life of concrete floors for long-term performance and reduced energy and natural resource consumption. Polished concrete typically contains no VOCs, and the glossy surface maintains a lighter space to conserve power.

Questions you should be asking

What is concrete polishing?

Concrete polishing is the process of mechanically grinding and honing a concrete floor with specialized equipment using industrial diamond polishing pads. The process cycles through progressively finer grits, as well as a densifier chemical for dust-proofing and hardening. The finished result is a durable, reflective surface that is easy to clean and maintain under the right circumstances.

How much time is needed to polish a concrete floor?

It depends on a number of variables, such as the current condition of the concrete slab and the area size. The good news: Once the polishing process is completed, the floor is immediately available for a return to normal operations, no additional drying or curing time required. As a point of reference, we are polishing loading docks for a food distribution company that can only shut-down for 6-hour windows. The process allows them to start loading again immediately.

What are the benefits of polished concrete floors in commercial / industrial facilities?

Functional benefits include: Strength and durability, good resistance to basic wear and tear, easy cleaning, minimal downtime. Visual benefits: Smooth, glossy surface that reflects light for added brightness. Polished concrete also can be customized with dyes and additives for design considerations.

Are polished concrete floors slippery and unsafe for people to walk on?

Because polishing results in a glossy finish, a common misconception is that they are slippery. As long as the surface remains clean and dry, polished concrete generally has good traction. For extra protection against slips, trips, and falls, special anti-slip conditioners can be applied.

Does concrete polishing include a coating step?

The bright, shiny surface of polished concrete looks like it has a glossy coating, but the concrete essentially remains bare. Grinding and hardening gives it the appearance of a coated finish.

What are the steps in the concrete polishing process?

The number of steps can vary from a few to several, depending on the desired outcome. The steps basically go from base grinding to a honed / satin level with a low-luster, matte finish to polishing levels for increasing sheen and light reflectivity. High-shine floors, with a mirror-like finish, generally take more steps to achieve.

What are gloss levels in concrete polishing?

Gloss is a generic description for what is technically referred to as specular gloss, or the measure of light reflected by the surface. Gloss is measured in units that range from 0 – 100 at different angles. The most-used measurement angles are 20, 60 and 85 degrees and the concrete polishing industry has traditionally used 60 degrees.

How do I know if polished concrete is a good solution for my facility?

Polished concrete is a viable option for many light industrial environments and commercial settings. It may not be optimal for certain environments, such as facilities with heavy wear and traffic or where strong acids or other chemicals are used routinely, as they can etch the surface and dull the finish. Also, the condition of the existing concrete slab is important—floors that are cracked, blemished, stained or uneven may not be a good candidate for concrete polishing. Painters USA is happy to assess your circumstances to help you choose the right solution for your facility.
