The execution of polished concrete can be carried out on a concrete slab that is several years old or on a new slab. The first step of polishing the concrete floor is sanding the concrete surface with different diamond segment until we get a surface that is extremely smooth and without any imperfections then diamond segment finishing tools are used. To well protect the concrete, lithium densifying treatments are applied during and after the polishing.
Two choices can be offered, it is possible to leave visible the crushed stone (aggregates that are part of the concrete mix) or to only keep visible the smooth surface called ‘salt and pepper’. The choice is a matter of taste. It is possible to insert recycled glass that will bond with the aggregates.
As for the color, you can choose between a multitude of shades. You can even insert several colors onto the same floor! To carry out the coloring of polished concrete floors, we use first quality natural pigments, designed specifically for concrete. This dye is included in the mixture before pouring it. This process makes it possible to obtain a uniform color, without any demarcation, which will be preserved over time.
