Polished & Stained Concrete
Definition of polished Concrete: 3 types
- Full Polished Concrete is concrete that has been processed through a series of mechanically ground "polishing/grinding" steps similar to the production of terrazzo. This process also includes the use of a penetrant chemical known as a hardener. Most durable and longest lasting.
- Topical Polished Concrete is the application of a liquid coating to a concrete floor surface in order to achieve a glossy finish. Durable but may require more maintenance based on traffic.
- Burnished Polished Concrete is defined as the friction/rubbing of a concrete floor surface with abrasive pads until the desired level of glossy finish is achieved. Maintenance process for full polished floors can also be used as a finished product that requires periodic maintenance.
