Polished concrete ‘grind and seal’ is a standard system of grinding and honing the concrete surface to the desired level using course 16 or 30 grit metal bonded diamonds. Once the desired aggregate exposure is achieved the surface is ground again using 60 grit diamonds which will remove any visible scratches. My Floor use a specialized grouting procedure to fill any cracks, holes or imperfections. The surface will then be cleaned and prepared for application of a gloss or matte finish surface coating or sealer.
My Floor utilizes a wide range of penetrating and film coat sealers which can be applied to meet any specification or design requirement. Sealers range from the traditional solvent based product to the advanced water based (environmentally friendly) products. It is important to choose the correct sealer for the required application, as different sealers will alter or change the appearance and feel of the finished product.
A floor which has a grind and seal finish applied will require stripping and re-sealing on an average of 1 – 5 years, depending on the volume and type of traffic the area is subject to. Another important factor is on-going care and maintenance, using the correct cleaning solutions recommended by My Floor will help to pro-long the floor.
