Benefits of Polishing

Slip Resistance

  • Measurement of coefficient of friction and slip resistance
  • Exceeds OSHA standards for floors
  • Exceeds ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act)
  • Higher degree of polish is not directly related to slip resistance

 

 

Stain Resistance

  • Reduces the porosity of the floor in conjunction with densifier
  • Densifying process is a chemical reaction, stain resistance not immediate
  • Slows down penetration of water, oil, and other contaminants

 

Restoration of Older Floors

  • Rain damage, spalling, pitting, delamination, floor failures
  • Removal of top surface and harden the concrete below
  • Deteriorated concrete can be strengthened
  • Impacted and abrasion resistance of the concrete can be increased

Better Lighting

  • Reflectivity of the floor
  • Can reduce lighting costs

 

Slip Resistance

  • Measurement of coefficient of friction and slip resistance
  • Exceeds OSHA standards for floors
  • Exceeds ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act)
  • Higher degree of polish is not directly related to slip resistance

 

Less Maintenance

  • Reduced penetration of contaminants, remain on surface
  • Tire marking significantly reduced
  • No sealing, waxing or stripping of floor required
  • No aggressive scrubbing required

Reduced Tire Wear

  • Smoother concrete surface can significantly reduced tire wear.

 

Timing of Installation

  • Applied after 28 days-no extended time frames between finishing and applying as with specialty coatings
  • Non-toxic-can be applied while building is still occupied
  • Densifier used in process-approvals through CFIA for use in food handling facilities

 

Cost Effective

  • Relativity inexpensive application costs
  • Low maintenance costs
  • One time application-no replacement costs as with specialty flooring systems

Types of Finishes

  • 800 Grit: Satin finish that will reflect images from side lighting
  • 1500 Grit: Semi-gloss finish that will reflect overhead and side images from 35-45 feet with increased light reflectivity
  • 3000 Grit: High-gloss finish that will look wet and show mirror like reflections of side and overhead images

Where can it be used?

  • Manufacturing
  • Commercial
  • Warehouses
  • Sports Arenas
  • Airport Facilities
  • Institutional Facilities
  • Residential
  • Convention Centers
  • Airplane Hangers
