Polished cement floors in Portland
Polished concrete has many benefits for your flooring surface, and the expert team at Specialty Coatings has the tools and resources to help you from start to finish. Generally, polished concrete is a sustainable process and uses less energy and materials than a different floor covering material. Concrete can be stained, colored, stamped, ground, or polished; whatever look you desire, we can achieve it. Concrete floors inside of buildings provide thermal mass, which reduces energy costs across the board. Their durability and easy maintenance requirements are important factors, too. Weekly scrubs with soapy water are all that’s needed. Mold and dust mites stand no chance with this flooring option compared to other materials.
Diamond concrete polishing
One of our most popular options is diamond concrete polishing. During this process, concrete is treated with a chemical identifier. We then ground the surface with progressively finer grinding tools attached to a professional Pulse-Bac vacuum system to control dust. Concrete is usually not considered polished before the 400 grit level, and is normally finished to either the 800, 1500, or 3000 grit level. We then apply stains and dyes to enhance the polished surface.
Acid-stained concrete polishing
Rather than a dye or pigment-base coloring system, acid staining concrete is a chemical reaction. We apply a mixture of water, salts, and acid to the concrete surface and later neutralize it with a basic solution of ammonia and water. Chemical reactions with the existing minerals in the concrete create new colors on the concrete surface. Due to inconsistencies in the surface of concrete, acid staining creates a variegated or mottled appearance unique to each slab. Penetration of the color change ranges from 1/16 to 1/32 of anh. It is important to remember exterior concrete surfaces may not color as well as interior surfaces because of the leaching of the mineral content from the concrete due to environmental exposure. In addition, exposed aggregate (rocks) in worn concrete will not accept staining.
