If you want your floor to shine, search no further than the concrete polishing method used by West Coast Epoxy in Union City. We use cutting edge concrete technology to stain, polish, and afterward protect your newly colored concrete floor.
The Polished Concrete Process
Here are the typical steps employed when polishing concrete:
- Grinding – A strong grind of the current concrete eliminates faults and ensures the floor sealers bond permanently. We use top shelf industrial vacuum equipment to collect the dust produced during the grind.
- Leveling – Areas with cracks or faults are refloated to the same level as the rest of the floor so that the polish is 100 percent flat and solid.
- Staining – Your concrete floor is infused, not just coated, with a color stain of your selection. Your selected patterns are also added at this step. Stains can be heavy, hiding the concrete grain, or light, allowing patterns in the concrete to shine through like polished wood.
- Transparent protective layer – Floor sealants applied above the polished floor fill the pores and highlight the impressive gloss. These transparent sealers bond to the smooth surface with great strength, creating a floor that is very low maintenance. For areas where heavy traffic is normal, we use a thicker coat of protective sealers to compensate.
Concrete polishing provides the finest in decorative durability while also producing scratch and chemical resistance. This method is great for businesses wanting a beautiful, tougher, and lower-maintenance floor surface in their commercial or industrial facility, as well as for homeowners wanting an exciting floor that’s easily maintained.
