The Polished Concrete Look

Manchester Epoxy Floors creates polished concrte floors with a clean and bright appearance. The polishing process actually brings out the natural beauty of the concrete floor by exposing different amounts of aggregate.

The look of polished concrete depends on the level of sheen you desire for your floor. The level of sheen is achieved depending on the exposed amounts of aggregate of the concrete floor and the grit number. The gloss levels are as follows:

Level 1: Grit below 100 / 4 abrasive passes/ Flat with little if reflectivity.

Level 2:  Grit 100 – 400 / 5 abrasive passes/ Matte or Satin finish

Level 3: Grit 800 and higher / 6 abrasive passes / Objects may reflect on the floor but not crisp and sharp

Level 4: Grit 800 and higher /7 abrasive passes/ objects reflected are crisp and sharp and of mirror-like clarity

Each concrete floor in Manchester has unique properties. The types of cement and aggregates in the concrete mixes when cement was poured determine the compositions and colors of the concrete floor.

The polishing process of Manchester Epoxy Floors accentuates the unique colors, natural beauty and aggregate patterns of concrete floors. We can also use dyes and stains to integrate patterns and colors if you want design elements in your floor.

Is Polished Concrete for All?

Based on the general rule, old and new can be polished. The hardness of the concrete surface though has a direct effect on the high gloss finish of the polished concrete process.

Concrete floors with the required hardness based on the Newton Scale can be transformed into polished concrete floors. It is more difficult to polish concrete or in some instances it can never be done when the minimum hardness is not met by the concrete surface.

The lack in concrete hardness is often traced the wrong mixture of materials poured as concrete. The hardness of concrete is based on the ratio of sand, water and cement as well as the pouring and finishing processes.
