FLOORING POLISHED TO PERFECTION


The Preparation Group outlines the benefits of grinding and polishing a concrete floor and advises how to achieve the optimum result.


If you are laying a new concrete floor or have an existing concrete subfloor, do you need to cover it? Grinding and then polishing it presents a good sustainable design flooring option because it makes use of the materials already present. Most modern buildings are built on a concrete slab; polishing the exposed concrete eliminates the energy and material consumed by applying a floorcovering. It is something to consider when building or modernizing towards a ‘greener’ solution.


Concrete doesn’t have to be dull. Polishing the laitance (sometimes referred to as ‘fat’) that sits on top of the concrete or exposing its aggregate is extremely popular for industrial, commercial and residential projects.


A laitance polish is where only the very thin top layer is polished to a finish. It is carried out with resin diamonds or a very fine and gentle pass with metal diamonds first, without exposing any aggregate. The importance of a good initial concrete install is critical, as this method is only polishing the top layer and will not level out a badly laid,

uneven surface. A minimal amount of material is removed which gives a deep cloudy look with plenty of character.


An exposed aggregate polish is produced by grinding down to the centre of the first layer of aggregate, then polishing to a terrazzo-type finish to the degree of shine required. Its composition will naturally dictate the finished result.

Using a variable speed multi-head grinder such as a Terrco Grinding & Polishing machine, where the configuration of the heads provides a more efficient operation, you get
