Concrete polishing can be done on a new concrete surface (having minimally completed its 28 day cure) or an already existing surface. All concrete surfaces are porous, and the polishing then transforms it into compact concrete making the surface incredibly bright (similar to granite). The polishing technique in question closes the pores of the concrete, therefore preventing dust accumulation. The surface becomes harder, more resistant to abrasive substances, waterproof and also easier to clean.
The method employed by Béton LC reaches full maturity after a few months so that the combination of chemical and mechanical action will give you the final result. In addition, it is important to note that the reaction in question is not visible to the naked eye, it is active within the surface. This method can also be applied to terrazzos and other natural stones, such as granite and marble.
Another significant advantage of this method is that it is an economic choice on the long-term since it replaces changing the flooring periodically and perpetually, and saves on expensive cleaning products. One application of our lithium based products does the job for a minimum of ten years.
Our technique offers several options depending on your needs. We can prepare the surface only, make a base for the polishing or apply a decorative polish on the concrete surface of your choice.
