Gem-Polished Concrete

Polished Concrete is a high quality and economical flooring solution that exhibits the raw beauty of exposed concrete with the industrial performance of a long lasting floor. Polished concrete is achieved through grinding the floor several times with progressively finer diamond tooling. Because polishing is a multistep process, you can choose the level of sheen – from matte to high-gloss. During the polishing process, an impregnating chemical hardener called densifier is applied to the floor in order to harden the concrete and increase abrasion resistance, stain resistance and anti-dusting qualities. Stain guards are often used as the last step in polishing in order to provide an additional layer of stain resistance. Customers can add dyes and stains to change or enhance the color of the concrete.
