Polished / Coloured Concrete / Epoxy
Polished concrete is a multi-step process where a concrete floor is mechanically ground, honed, and polished with bonded abrasives in order to cut a concrete floor’s surface. It is then refined with each cut to achieve a specified level of appearance. This process also includes the use of a penetrant chemical known as a hardener. The concrete densifier/hardener penetrates the concrete and creates a chemical reaction to help harden and dust-proof the surface.
Decorative concrete is the use of concrete as not simply a utilitarian medium for construction but as an aesthetic enhancement to a structure, while still serving its function as an integral part of the building itself such as floors, walls, driveways, and patios. The transformation of concrete into decorative concrete is achieved using a variety of materials that may be applied during the pouring process or after the concrete is cured, these materials and/or systems include but are not limited to stamped concrete, acid staining, decorative overlays, polished concrete, concrete countertops, vertical overlays and more.
Epoxy flooring, also known as resinous flooring or polymer flooring, is a two-part mixture consisting of resin and hardener. Epoxy is placed over concrete, wood, VCT, tile, or many other common industrial and commercial floors. The chemical reaction creates a bond to the substrate and forms a hard plastic. Plus, it cures fast so your company can get back to business quickly.
