One of the industries that have undergone great evolution is the polishing industry. Many grinding companies have been developed and other many created. Still other companies will start as most people are getting into this industry. Quality concrete polishing can be done with the companies that apply the tips contained in this article. Below are the tips that can be applied in concrete polishing.
Determining the surface hardness is the first thing that should be done. This is done by testing its hardness using a concrete hardness tester. This is to help in deciding on the right abrasives. The surface can be scratched using the first tip with the largest number. Then the scratching is then done in a decreasing order. This is done until the tip cannot do the scratching anymore. At this level, the level of hardness is ok.
Then the preparation of the concrete surface is done as the next thing. Sometimes one can get the coated floors. Here, the coat is removed with the right equipment. The type of coating is what affects the equipment to be used in the removal of this coat. Some floors normally have cracks and holes. It is good to remove the holes and cracks first. Then gritting is done to a level and desired flatness with the metal bond tooling.
Then the metal tool marks have to be removed. Transitional tooling can help here. The ability of transitional tooling to eliminate all the marks is high. The process is considered successful when all the tool marks disappear.
Then densifying and hardening of the floor is done with the process of vacuuming. The pore and crack filer is used to densify and solidify the surface of the floor. Also vacuuming helps in protecting the floor from allowing water penetration and stain creation. A lot of care is needed so as the pooling does not result when using the floor densifiers. Pooling creates stains that can harden the process of polishing.
After all the above things are done effectively, the polishing is now done. One is advised to start with the resign band. Then all the dust is removed that is, the space is vacuumed in between the passes. After the final grit level is reached, burnishing is done with the use of a burnishing pad.
Then the last thing that should be done to the floor is protecting it. The floor get the protection by the sealing it. Some of the things that the floor is protected from are the grease, oil and any other chemicals. The pump can be used to apply the sealer to the floor. The floor can be left shining after burnishing is done. Successful concrete polishing can be done with the tips given.
