Leyland Lancashire: Polished Concrete Factory Floor

Here is the first part of a large ongoing contract with have a blue chip company. We were selected above others to transform an area of a 40 year old factory floor made up of multiple concrete slabs. We were chosen for our professional integrity, health and safety awareness and of course the finish we produce from our state of the art diamond tooling.

As you can see from the before photograph, the whole floor was covered with industrial epoxy floor paint, literally layers upon layers of paint with silica sand impregnation. We used a complex blend of diamond abrasives to cut away the soft paint and epoxy and abrade away the sand, leaving a bare concrete floor, ready for honing and polishing.

After the coarse grinding with our metal bonded diamond abrasives, we used the advanced CARRcrete ceramic pads to smooth out the grinding scratches leaving a smooth, matt finish that is smooth to the touch and ready for impregnation with our nano silicate densifier CARRcrete PROhard. PROhard soaks down into the concrete and reacts with the free lime present, converting this material into a much harder product called calcium silicate hydrate which increases the abrasion resistance and reduces porosity significantly.

After fully saturating the surface with densifier we continued processing the surface with finer diamond abrasives to create the flat mirror like surface. Once complete we added a layer of additional stain resistance with our CARRcrete PROseal impregnator, a type of sealer that soaks into the surface to help resistance soiling.
