Polished concrete


The polished concrete is used most often for flooring, when a smooth, or even shiny surface, easy to clean and maintain is needed. This concrete is obtained by polishing the surface of the hardened concrete using special equipment and hardening and compacting agents that increase the resistance of the concrete’s surface. The polished concrete is suitable for all types of interiors, both in residential buildings (houses, blocks of flats) and in commercial buildings (shops, showrooms, shopping centers). Benefits: • High durability - with proper protection ensured by film application • Easy to maintain • Easy to clean • Reduces problems with mites and allergens • Anti-mold • Improves natural / artificial lighting • Particular appearance especially by coloring the paste or by using aggregates of different colors • Allows customized design - by using templates, design areas (e.g. business logos) can be obtained.
