The whole process of concrete grinding has recaptured the imagination of property owners, engineers, architects, contractors and interior designers in the last decade. This process involves industry experience, technical knowhow and bit of artistic expression too, which can bring a very different effect to your regular concrete. It all depends on the skill level of the grinder crew. A good crew will not only make your concrete grinding process an easy task, but will also explain the different stages involved and inform you of the approximate time and cost required to carry it out. This is exactly what Marble Pro’s Polishing & Restoration strives for.
So, what exactly is concrete grinding? It is the process that helps in smoothening down the rough surface of concrete into shiny flooring. We make use of heavy machinery to carry out this process, along with segments and discs encrusted with diamonds. These discs or segments look a lot like sand paper. The concrete grinding process uses discs with finer grit compared to regular discs, in order to make a smoother and shinier surface.
Marble Pro’s Polishing & Restoration carries out concrete grinding in a step-by-step process to refine the existing look of the flooring in your home or office, giving it a perfect finish. The first stage of the process is grinding, followed by honing and polishing, in sequence. Each of these steps is further divided into a number of smaller steps that make use of abrasives with increasing fineness of grit. Once we are through with these steps, a densifier is applied, which is absorbed by the concrete and reacts with it chemically. The flooring then feels hard and rough, and has the right finish we are looking for. Some of the densifiers we use are Sodium, Lithium and Potassium.
There are a number of factors that need to be carefully considered, and controlled, when performing the concrete grinding process. The first is the equipment itself, with key factors being the equipment weight and the speed in RPM. The abrasives are controlled for the diamond thread’s configuration, its hardness, the saturation and the time to move on to the next level of abrasives. The third important factor is the densifier, where we have to consider the type of densifier to use and the time for its application.
