Tips Of Concrete Polishing
Jul 09, 2018

   Polish concrete can be use wet or dry. mostly are dry because it is faster and convenient,environment friendly. wet use is inconvenient with cleanup

 

   Many contractors use a combination of both the wet and dry polishing methods. Typically, dry polishing is used for the initial grinding steps, when more concrete is being removed. As the surface becomes smoother, and crews switch from the metal-bonded to the finer resin-bonded diamond abrasives, they generally change to wet polishing.

 

Step-by-Step:

 

Remove existing coatings (for thick coatings, use a 16- or 20-grit diamond abrasive or more aggressive tool specifically for coating removal)

Seal cracks and joints with an epoxy or other semi-rigid filler.

Grind with a 30- or 40-grit metal-bonded diamond.

Grind with an 80-grit metal-bonded diamond.

Grind with a 150-grit metal-bonded diamond (or finer, if desired).


Apply a chemical hardener to densify the concrete.

Polish with a 100- or 200-grit resin-bond diamond, or a combination of the two.

Polish with a 400-grit resin-bond diamond.

Polish with an 800-grit resin-bond diamond.

Finish with a 1500- or 3000-grit resin-bond diamond (depending on the desired sheen level).

Optional: Apply a stain guard to help protect the polished surface and make it easier to maintain
