A properly prepared surface is the key to resurfacing success
If you have a concrete floor that needs resurfacing treatment, concrete floor grinding helps your new floor stands the test of time. Resin and epoxy coatings need a properly prepared, clean and textured surface to be successfully applied. Concrete sealants need a base free from contaminants to successfully penetrate the concrete slab. Concrete floor grinding is an essential surface preparation that removes:
- Uneven and rough patches in your concrete floor
- Contamination from adhesives, paints or chemicals
- Flaking surface coatings
- Superficial marks and scratches
Grinding back an old concrete floor also gives it a great key for adhesion. When investing in resin or epoxy coatings, adhesion is the most important factor for long lasting and durable results.
Why do concrete floors need grinding?
Preparing your concrete floors by grinding ensures a longer lasting, more durable finish – whatever coating you are planning to use. Without this first step, your new floor coatings may flake, drum, develop surface bubbles and eventually break down. Preparing your commercial and industrial concrete floors correctly with grinding will give you a better, long term outcome for your flooring investment.
