Concrete Polishing

Your Industrial Epoxy Floor Experts


Concrete polishing is a simple, cost effective process that works with the uppermost layer of both old and new concrete floors to micro-buff worn, unattractive concrete floors into a final pristine finish, adding beauty and value to your facility. At less than half the cost of other flooring solutions (between $0.31 and $0.37/square foot per year), the process of concrete polishing mechanically and chemically seals the pores in the concrete, inhibiting penetration of oil, water, and other contaminants. In turn, concrete becomes harder, denser, dust-proof, and extremely simple to clean and maintain. Polished Floors are also stain and slip resistant, aesthetic and reflective, also making cleaning your concrete floors a breeze. 

Polished concrete floors are ideal for commercial spaces that don’t require strict industry code requirements for their flooring. There are a range of finishes available that will offer varying degrees of polish, so you can choose how matte or glossy you would like the floor to be.  This is often the most cost effective, long-term floor solution on the market to breathe life back into your concrete floors, and set them up for yet another life cycle of success. Repolishing should occur only every 6-9 years.

The problem


Applied Industrial Flooring Canada is proud to be a certified applicator of Diamond Plate Concrete Polish Systems. The Diamond Plate Concrete Polishing System is a simple, cost-effective flooring solution for concrete polished floors that transform worn, unattractive concrete floors into brilliant, shiny showpieces, instantly adding beauty and value to your facility. 

This system uses heavy-duty polishing machines with progressively finer grits of diamond-impregnated discs to mechanically and chemically grind down to their desired degree of shine and smoothness. This seals the concrete’s pores to inhibit penetration of oil, water, and other contaminants. Floors can repel stains, making cleaning your polished concrete floors a cinch.


Questions we get a lot

Diamond Grinding is a multi-step buffing process whereby we grind the concrete surface starting with a coarse diamond/metal grit, and moving to a finer grind for a smooth finish. After the grinding process is complete, a special surface treatment is applied and polished into the concrete pores using another multi-step buffing process from coarse to fine diamond/resin polishing tools. This process of polishing and sealing, and buffing the concrete produces a natural polished concrete floor finish that can last with high-traffic for up to 10+ years.

Yes, Polished concrete floors are a fantastic alternative to a traditional hard surface floor that can outlast many other commercial or industrial floor coverings. There are many benefits to grinding and Diamond sealing concrete with our polishing machines, such as an increase in natural light reflectivity that can help cut energy and lighting costs, concrete floors are extremely low maintenance, easy to clean and hygienic.
