POLISHED CONCRETE FLOOR ENTRANCE AT SHOPPING MALL
After initial challenges with the tooling choice on the floor, work progressed well and the floor was polished up to a 400 grid polish and sealed with a high quality solvent sealer.
In order to achieve this finish we went through a 20, 60 and 120 grid metal grind process to expose the aggregate and cut the floor level and filled up all imperfections in the floor. Here after we applied a high quality densifier to improve the composition of the concrete further, before the polishing phase could commence.
Polishing was done with 50, 100, 200 and 400 grid polishing pads until the desired effect was achieved as requested by the client. Lastly 3 coats of sealer was applied to protect the finished product and the result speaks for themselves.
POORLY CAST ENTERTAINMENT AREA FLOOR AT A RESIDENTIAL HOUSE
The floor was poorly cast by the contractor and on an initial inspection, it was not clear if the floor could be polished. Fortunately the correct concrete mix was utilised in the project by the contractor and we decided to go ahead and see if we would be able to save the floor and still enable the client to have a polished finished look in the entertainment area as desired.
