How Concrete Grinding and Polishing Works
To begin the process, our heavy duty grinding and polishing machine uses a heavy grit to grind down the surface of the concrete to the level desired.
This first stage is where the most concrete is removed. We grind the top layer of concrete away to expose the aggregate. The amount of the top layer of concrete that is removed is dependant on the size of aggregate that is desired.
Once we have reached the desired depth, our contractors modify the grinding and polishing machine to use a progressively finer grit to smooth and polish the surface of the concrete to the desired sheen.
In addition to grinding and polishing, Substrate Solutions has these added capabilities:
Level and flatten floor in an easy way
Grind floor for proper drainage
Can help correct “rain damages” slabs
Environmentally friendly because a top coating is now not necessary
Incredibly cost effective
Perfect for high bay storage
Leveling a Concrete Slab
Step 1: Align guide and grinding machine on level section of concrete.
Step 2: Grind towards the guide. As the machine is grinding it is “guided” on how much cement needs to be removed in order to level the concrete slab.
Step 3: The concrete is level.
