Polished concrete floors are created using the mechanical process of polishing the surface of an existing concrete slab using engineered floor grinders fitted with industrial diamond abrasives. During this process, the concrete is polished using finer grits of diamond abrasives until the floor reaches the desired level of shine. With polished concrete, choose from 4 levels of shine.
LEVELS OF POLISHED CONCRETE
Level 1 - Matte, Flat: The floor has a matte finish and will appear somewhat hazy with minimal clarity or reflection.
Level 2 - Low Sheen: The floor has a very low luster sheen with a matte finish. At about a 100 feet distance, you can start to see slight overhead reflection.
Level 3 - Semi-Gloss: The floor will have a higher gloss than compared to a level 2. There will be good light reflectivity. At about a 30-50 ft distance, the floor will clearly reflect light.
Level 4 - High Gloss: The floor produces the highest level of shine, similar to glass with high light reflectivity. The floor almost appears wet from many vantage points.Polished Concrete - Level 2, 400 grit
