Grinding allows the floor to be cleaned with diamond grinders. This method is mostly used to remove glue, paint or other existing residues. It is also useful for the correction and restoration of concrete slabs. This type of service requires a grinder equipped with diamond discs and allows the removal of any visible impurities as well as the repair of the concrete.
Diamond polishing is a unique and trendy process today. The new polishing technologies now allow the polishing of concrete slabs, the final appearance of which will be very resistant and more than brilliant. The HTC Superfloor polishing technique complies with the laws concerning volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and highlights the natural beauty and strength of concrete while respecting the environment. The method mechanically refines the concrete surface by removing the upper cement paste and exposing the more solid concrete beneath. Existing concrete is sanded and polished according to an effective method tested. The result is a floor with a totally uniform surface and high quality, both functional and aesthetic. The polishing process is a series of 8 to 10 steps of grinding and mechanical polishing. Depending on the condition of the floor, the procedure may take more or fewer steps. The first three or four steps prepare the floor by removing all finishing defects using metal-type diamond binders. The last four to six steps use a diamond-type resin binder. These last steps seal the slab and polish it with a matt, satin or gloss finish. The higher the number of polishing steps, the brighter and shiny the concrete will be. Polished concrete is an astute choice, with superior durability and the ultimate choice for the future. The HTC Superfloor method is superior to all other processes because it is more functional, ecological and economical. Low maintenance costs and longer service life make this method the most lucrative option for investment. The cost of the life cycle is about 60% lower than for traditional flooring solutions.
