Polished concrete is concrete that has been treated with a chemical densifier while ground with progressively finer grinding tools. The grinding process involves the use of progressively finer diamond grinding grits on cup wheels and diamond polishing pads. Polishing concrete is the smart choice for an attractive, cost effective floor; but good looks aren’t enough. We don’t just make floors fancy; we give them integrity. You can rest assured that our floor installation is right the first time; they’ll age well and save you money, and years from now, you’ll be glad you called us. We see your polished concrete flooring project through to the end; from the specification process to maintenance of your project.
Elite Coatings specializes in not only acid staining and polishing concrete, but dying concrete as well. Dyed concrete floors offer a wide range of customizable options and are ideal for commercial flooring. Concrete dyes move beyond the color range of concrete acid stains, as they have many more vibrant colors that can be blended to create an even greater color spectrum for your concrete floors. Concrete dyes are formulated using extremely small molecules of color, and along with the correct solvent or water, will penetrate any cementious surface when properly prepared. At Elite Coatings we use earth-friendly floor polishing systems and concrete dyes that can create both a translucent acid like appearance and a rainbow of vibrant colors.
Concrete acid staining is limited in colors and variations of each. The colors are generally earth tone in nature. Multiple colors can be achieved through a variety of methods. Our polished concrete system, along with concrete acid staining, will give the concrete a translucent permanent variegated mottled look that is UV stable. Concrete acid staining is an excellent way to change the color of existing uncolored or colored concrete commercial flooring that has been in place for at least 28 days.
