- Client – Cadco Inc based in Winsted Connecticut
- Project Size – 20,000 SF
- Time To Complete – 1 Week
- Problem – Old Epoxy was dirty, became porous due to age and hard to maintain.
- Solution – Grind Off Old epoxy with our diamond grinding machines. Then grind the floor with Diamond Grinding PCD’s (Polycrystalline Diamonds are high performance grinding tooling capable of removing the top layer of coatings and cement ). Then the floor was honed in various steps including 30, 80 then 150 diamond resins. Floors were densified using Consolideck LS and Sealed with Consolideck PolishGuard.
About Concrete Polishing – Polished concrete floors are extremely popular due to the natural, decorative appearance, high performance and low maintenance. Floors can be colored with stains and dyes to improve appearance. Various levels of shine can be created from a matte to high gloss finish. This is achieved with resin bonded diamond pads from 100 – 3,000 grit. Read More
