Advanced Floor Coatings uses Concrete Polished Floors on concrete floors as an alternative to marble, granite, tile, wood, and linoleum. You can enjoy the low maintenance benefits because there’s no wax, epoxy, acrylic, or any other shiny coverings applied that will eventually fail. Polished concrete floors provide higher levels of co-efficient friction than any other coating on the market.
Wet or dry polished concrete floors can meet OHSA standards. So if you’re tired of stripping and waxing floors, a polished concrete floor might be the way to go over a decorative epoxy flake floor system.
Benefits of Polished Concrete Floors
Polished concrete is a mechanical grinding & polishing process that utilizes industrial diamonds to grind the concrete surface down. From there hardeners and sealers are used to level, densify, polish and seal the concrete floor from within the interior of the floor’s concrete surface.
In heavy industrial, commercial or institutional use, an inexpensive re-polish may be needed years down the road, depending on your maintenance. There are many ways for concrete floors to break as they age: rain damage, surface stress, delamination, improper curing, curled cold joints, joint shoulder failure and several more.
The dry concrete polishing process actually removes the top part of the surface of the old concrete floor (including any patchy, partial, or whole coatings) and hardens the exposed concrete surface beneath. Old, deteriorating, or weak concrete is strengthened and its impact and abrasion resistance is increased.

What Are The Benefits of Polished Concrete?
When a forklift burns out on a coated floor the friction caused between its tire and the concrete surface leaves a mark. This does not occur on a polished concrete floor because there are no resins to burn on the concrete’s surface.
