Polished concrete flooring is simply a concrete floor that has been ground with aggressive to progressively finer grinding diamonds from 30 grit to 3,000 grit. As the number on the grits increases, so does surface shine and reflection, a polished concrete floor reflection starts about 400 grit, , although other polishing grits range finer from 800 to 1,500 as high as 3,000 which will be smoother and more reflective than one with a lower grit finish. The process is similar to sanding granite with progressively finer grinding tools until you have a mirror finish. At different point during the process filing of holes and cracks in the concrete will be preformed. Also a Lithium densifier will be applied. At the completion stage a guard will be applied to the polished concrete to help protect and keep the concrete clean.
