Polished concrete is the ultimate in attractive natural finishes and can closely resemble polished stone. However, not all polished concrete is the same. The term “polish” is sometimes loosely applied. Often, concrete is just ground and sealed (sometimes called “honed finish”). The sealing compound adds lustre and reflective qualities that resemble polishing without the effort of polishing. A true polish is a much longer and exhaustive process which involves ever finer grades of polishing pads. The ultimate in polished finishes does not utilise a surface coating (sealer). The working surface is achieved progressively with impregnating hardening compounds and a great deal of very fine polishing – a mirror finish. This surface is hard, durable and completely maintenance free.
