Diamond Polishing - Industrial
Industrial diamond polishing provides cost-effective option for refurbishing old flooring or producing new, durable, low-maintenance installations. Mechanically polished floors last longer than conventional concrete floors, cost less, and are an eco-friendly alternative to old-fashioned waxing, vinyl or urethane paint. Polished concrete is harder and more durable than any other floor finish, and it resists tire marks, has minimal maintenance costs and dramatic visual appearance with great reflection saving lighting costs.
Diamond Polishing - Decorative
The process of decorative diamond polishing involves using diamond-abrasive heads to remove the surface layer of concrete followed by resin-bonded diamonds to achieve reflective sheen. Polished concrete has several benefits, including elimination of dusting, increased concrete density, better abrasion and impact resistance, reduced lighting cost, higher friction co-efficient, elimination of tire marks, decreased maintenance, and minimal downtime.
Concrete is a porous material that can absorb water, stains, and other liquids. Sealing concrete floors can prevent this absorption and provide protection against high traffic, chemicals, and salt. Topical and penetrating sealers can be used for concrete floors providing wear resistance and surface strength. Areas that would benefit from concrete sealing include warehouses, manufacturing plants, food processing plants, public places with heavy pedestrian traffic, and more.
Epoxy coatings for concrete floors offer many advantages, including being seamless, easy to clean, resistant to high traffic and chemicals, and environmentally friendly. These coatings can be used on new or existing concrete floors and are beneficial for various industrial and commercial settings.
Epoxy Flake Floor
We offer professional installation of durable and aesthetically pleasing epoxy flake coatings for homes, offices, and garages. Mechanical preparation and attention to flaws are keys to a long-lasting epoxy flake floor. Abrasion-resistant polyaspartic topcoats produce a clear, easy-to-clean surface that does not require waxing or other upkeep.
Garage Floor Epoxy
Garage epoxy system is highly resistant to chemicals, moisture, and dirt, making it ideal for harsh climates. It also prevents dust and dirt from spreading throughout the garage, making it cleaner and safer. It can be customized with decorative flakes or coloured quartz to match the style of your home or office. The coating is also UV- stable and does not yellow like traditional epoxy.
Metallic Epoxy Coating
These floors offer a multidimensional, glossy 3D effect and are highly durable, making them perfect for both residential and commercial installations. They are also easy to maintain and come in a variety of colors, allowing customers to choose the exact pigments and colors they want. The polyurethane topcoat not only seals the floors but also makes them scratch and UV resistant to maintain their flawless effect for years to come.
Surface preparation of concrete is essential before applying coatings or repair materials. It involves removing surface contaminants such as dirt, oil, and grease, stripping away coatings, and filling active cracks. Profiling or roughening the surface improves the adhesion of the overlay. Polycrystalline diamonds are used to effectively remove different topical applications like epoxy, mastic, paint, and adhesives.
Concrete repair and joint filling are important to increase the durability and functionality of concrete surfaces. Proper repair can restore structural strength, provide a more seamless surface, and increase aesthetics. Joint filling is necessary to prevent early deterioration due to heavy traffic and moisture infiltration. Using the appropriate method and material for repair can save money and prevent future costly issues.
Self-leveling concrete comes in two forms: underlayment and overlayment. Underlayment is used to level uneven floors, while overlayment gives old concrete surfaces durable new layer of decorative finish. Self-leveling screeds are self- compacting and offer a smoother, flatter, uniform floor, making it an ideal base for final finishes like carpet, hardwood, tiles, and epoxy.
Parking Traffic Topping
Parking garage traffic topping system is necessary to protect the underlying structure from water, chemical fluids, and de-icing products. Unlike roof systems, garage traffic toppings must resist loading, shearing forces, and abrasion. Traffic- bearing membranes are liquid-applied in layers of epoxy and/or urethane polymers, with the ability to bridge moving cracks and improve surface traction, abrasion resistance, and durability.
Moisture Control Systems
Moisture-related problems with floor coverings and coatings on concrete slabs are a serious issue for constructors, manufacturers, and owners. Testing the relative humidity of the concrete using ASFM F2170 is essential to determine whether a moisture control system is required. The moisture control system blocks rising moisture vapor, prevents adhesive and flooring from coming into contact with the high pH in the concrete, and provides a solution to installing the desired floor covering without producing a failure.
