Diamond Polishing

WHAT IS POLISHED CONCRETE

An overview of how concrete floors are polished

Simply put, polishing concrete is similar to sanding wood. Heavy-duty polishing machines equipped with progressively finer grits of diamond-impregnated segments or disks (akin to sandpaper) are used to gradually grind down surfaces to the desired degree of shine and smoothness.

The process begins with the use of coarse diamond segments bonded in a metallic matrix. These segments are coarse enough to remove minor pits, blemishes, stains, or light coatings from the floor in preparation for final smoothing. Depending on the condition of the concrete, this initial rough grinding is generally a three- to four-step process. With this process we give the floor a smooth profile.

The next steps involve fine grinding of the concrete surface using diamond abrasives embedded in a plastic or resin matrix. Crews use ever-finger grits of polishing disks (a process called “lapping”) until the floor has the desired sheen. For an extreme- ly high-gloss finish, a final grit of 1500 or finer may be used. Experienced polishing crews know when to switch to the next-fin- ger grit by observing the floor surface and the amount of material being removed.
