The Most Common Polished Concrete Floor Finishes
All structural concrete floors when originally poured by the builder to form the foundation and floor, has aggregate content embedded in the concrete floor. Each concrete mix company has slightly different aggregate colours, sizes, and the composition and colour of the concrete can and will vary from one concrete mix company to another. As such this is the primary reason each finished polished concrete slab has it's own beautiful and unique look. However we can and do control the level of the aggregate we expose during the grinding process and (prior polishing) as described below.
Aggregate Levels: Below are the three most common types of grinding and polishing finishes. The biggest difference between the finishes is the depth of aggregate exposure(the more aggregate exposure is desired, the more aggressive grinding and more time is involved in grinding before polishing stage). The second major factor is the level of sheen that is desired of the floor, from low to high can be obtained from polishing the concrete.
A. Cream Polished (Minimal aggregate) This is the most basic form of polishing concrete. It is a one or two step grinding process (minimal surface cream removal) with majority of time is emphasized on polishing the concrete with minimal with virtually no aggregate exposure.. (typical finish for industrial facilities and box stores, lofts, or over freshly cured self-leveling cement overlay products.)
C. Large aggregate Exposure
We own and operate the finest quality American and European made concrete grinding/polishing equipment technology and the process we use called the HTC SUPERFLOOR system is a time tested and proven floor polishing system. This manufacturer developed process along with our own tweaks and premium tooling produces superior high definition floor finishes with various grades from low to high reflective sheen.
