– Harder and stronger than other floor finishes
– Does not lift, peal or flake
– Dense surface helps protect against absorption of oil and contaminants
– Resists tire marks from fork trucks and other traffic
– More abrasion resistant than unfinished concrete
– No hydrostatic / vapor pressure issues
– Installation requires no cure schedule
– Flatter, more level surface
– Typically meets/ exceeds OSHA recommends of a static coefficient friction of 0.5

Economical Benefits of Polished Concrete:
– No down time while chemical processes cure
– Lower initial costs compared to most other floor coverings
– One-time application with minimal maintenance
– Lower maintenance costs with less wear on cleaning equipment and consumables
– Long life cycle

Environmental Benefits of Polished Concrete:
– Dry, dust-controlled equipment filters out 99.9% of all airborne dust
– Helpful in LEED projects
– No coating, urethane, waxes or topical coatings applied
