Grind, Sand, Strip, Buff, Burnish, Polish & Edge…
The demand for polished concrete flooring is growing; it is hard wearing, utilises the existing substrate and looks good.
The process of polishing this type of surface with floor grinders is similar to refinishing wood with a floor sander. Concrete grinders are used to gradually grind down the concrete surface using a combination of diamond tooling and formulated liquids to achieve the desired shine and smoothness. A properly finished and maintained surface is likely to give 100+ years of service, whereas other materials, in much shorter time frames, will peel, flake, stain, chip, bubble or fade.
Historically creating a good looking, long lasting polished concrete floor has been messy, complicated and often time consuming. However Ultrafloor have developed a superior solution to anything else on the market. The machinery used from surface preparation to polishing has given clients versatility, speed, maneuverability, productivity, and the results set them apart from the competition.
Ultrafloor have utilised the WerkMaster range of grinding machines, all of which can uniquely grind, sand, strip, buff, burnish, polish, and edge to within 1/8′′ (3 mm) of the wall – 7 machines in one. The only decision that needs to be made is choosing the appropriate sized machine for the job – from kitchen worktop to a 10,000 meter plus floor. The two technologies that has enabled this breakthrough are firstly the use of eight counter rotating discs (conventionally single/ double head or planetary machines have been used) and secondly simple to use ‘plug in tooling’, that can easily be changed per application- giving each machine full versatility. Furthermore all machines are compatible with the MaxVac range of vacuums making floor preparation a virtually dust free process.
The final step is how to keep the floor looking great and slip free. Ultrafloor have developed an environmentally friendly sealer and cleaning formulations to eliminate high maintenance and surface break down. These formulations ensure stain and etching resistance to acids, wine, coffee, vinegar and other chemicals- plus a slip free formula that exceeds industry standards.
A properly prepared, polished and sealed floor is a valuable investment, either in your home or within a commercial environment. The Ultrafloor solution enables those that use it to enjoy the benefits of having a distinctively beautiful, long lasting, safe, easy to clean and maintain concrete floor.
