Polished Coating Systems
Traditional Polished Concrete is achieved through a series of mechanically grinding and polishing using products such as APC Grout and Densicure Densifier.
During the concrete polishing installation, the surface is processed through a series of steps using a Diamond Grinder and Polishing Pads which gives a stunning finish to any residential or commercial environment.
Alternatively, there is the APC Cut and Coat System where the concrete is ground down to expose the desired level of stone and then coated with a topical Urethane such as Tetrathane® or Liquathane® or an Epoxy such as EPO100G® Glaze which may also have a Urethane Tetrathane® top coat.
A great advantage of a Cut and Coat system is the finish is non-porous, therefore easier to keep floor stain free and is an easier system to install, typically less time an in most cases will be a more cost-effective alternative to mechanical polish system.
Both systems are very modern, attractive and a long-term solution and a great flooring alternative to other traditional flooring options.
