CREATE AND DECORATE
Polished concrete 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 floor covering. It is something to consider when building or modernizing towards a more green solution.
Concrete polish is the process of grinding the concrete with progressively finer grinding tools. The process can leave a consistant salt and pepper or expose the aggregates creating a unique look particular of each concrete floor.
The levels of polished finishes can be matte up to a 400 grit, shine up to a 800 grit and high gloss with over 1500 grit. Sealants, dyes or stains are often applied to increase the brilliance and protect the concrete surface.
Concrete is very durable and long-lasting, and a nicely polished concrete flooring will give the space a dynamic look. For commercial uses, the strength and durability of concrete can’t be beat, but sometimes the aesthetic appearance of concrete leaves something to be desired. Concrete polish helps to transform the look of a traditional dull gray concrete slab into a beautiful marble-esque flooring option that is ideal for almost any venue.
STAINS AND DYES CONCRETE
Stains and Dyes, imparts a richness rather than a solid opaque effect like paints, stain and dyes permeate the concrete to infuse it with luminous, translucent tones that vary depending on the surface. They work by penetrating the surface and reacting with the calcium hydroxide in the concrete. Once they react it becomes permanent and wont fade, chip off or peel away. Acid stains are limited to earthy tones and soft blues and greens while water based stains comes in a much broader spectrum of hues, even metallic tints and can range from translucent to opaque. Concrete stains are intended to enhance rather than disguise the surface, they will not hide cracks, or other flaws. They have excellent UV stability and resistance
ENHANCED YOUR SURFACES
Epoxy coatings comes in many colors, they can cover cracks and flaws on the concrete leaving a smooth and consistant surface,
There are epoxy floor coating systems specifically for garage floors, to give them a wear- and chemical-resistant surface. They come in a wide variety of color options, and can be accented with decorative quartz or multicolored chips to provide a look similar to granite or terrazzo.
This new type of epoxy-based system allows you to "guild" your concrete to replicate the look of copper, silver, aged bronze, nickel, and other shimmery patinas. Some of these coatings contain real metallic powders, while others use special reflective pigments. They are especially popular for floors in retail, office, and restaurant settings, where a modern, upscale look is desired.
