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.
