What is Polished Concrete?
If you want to give your internal flooring a breathtaking shine, then choose polished concrete.
This method uses mechanical grinders to remove thin layers of the surface to reveal the desired amount of stone (aggregate) concealed within the concrete and then polish out the scratches to produce a shiny surface.
It is also known as Mechanically Polished Concrete (MPC) as it only relies on the machine to refine the surface to the desired gloss level. This methodical process can take up to 10 machine passes and reach a mirror like reflection.

What is Honed Concrete?
Some customers mistakenly assume that polished concrete and honed concrete are the same. There are similarities between these two concrete improvement methods, but the difference lies in the process. What makes honed concrete different from polished concrete? Let’s find out.
Honed concrete also uses a mechanical grinder to remove layers of the surface and reveal a flatter layer underneath. Typically completed in two to three machine passes, this process involves less refinement to the scratches on the surface, giving more of a matte or low sheen appearance with less colour clarity on the aggregate.
This in turn adds to the slip resistance, making honed concrete an excellent choice for outdoor surfaces.

Give Concrete a Unique Look
Want an interior floor or a patio that dazzles? Choose polished or honed concrete.
These concrete flooring solutions produce a gloss that gives any surface a timeless appeal. Whether it’s for a residential garage, a coffee shop, or an office, you’ll never go wrong with honed or polished concrete.
Simply sweep, vacuum or dry mop the polished or honed concrete floor to keep it clean daily. When wet mopping we only recommend the use of a pH neutral floor cleaner to avoid damaging the surface or the sealer. Steam mops are also advised against.
This type of flooring can last for many years when kept clean and maintained regularly.
