Another Great Power Trowel Concrete Polishing Project - This Time in Texas
Friday, December 21, 2018
Concrete polishing has been around for a while, but the traditional way of polishing concrete has been found to be very labor intensive & time consuming. Redimere Surface Solutions is on the leading edge of a revolutionary concrete polishing process – power trowel concrete polishing . We are able to quickly transform ordinary concrete floors by retro-fitting our power trowel finishing machines with diamond grinding pads & polish large, open spaces of concrete in the fraction of the time it would take using the traditional dry-grinding method.
We were contacted by a property management firm in the Chicago area about a large commercial warehouse space they had recently acquired in the Dallas-Ft. Worth area. Redimere teamed up with our sister office in Grand Prairie, TX and got to work on figuring out manpower, scheduling and equipment to fulfill our client’s time requirements. This type of inter-office communication is a big part of what allows the Painters USA family of companies to efficiently tackle nationwide projects.
Our crews got to work grinding & honing this large warehouse floor with the following steps:
50 Grit Diamond
100 Grit Diamond
200 Grit Diamond
Densify with Prosecco Consolideck LS Densifier
400 Grit Diamond
800 Grit Diamond
3000 Grit Diamond impregnated burnishing pad
Apply one coat of LS Guard
Finish the process with a final burnish
