Concrete, unless sealed is a porous surface, prone to staining, chipping and damage.
Applying a penetrating sealer can stop oils, dirt, salts and liquids from setting in. It prevents water from entering though small hairline cracks and cause them to grow over time or even worse, reach the concrete metal joints and cause them to rust.
Concrete sealing has a similar look to polished concrete, but instead of the concrete being polished until it shines, grind and seal brings more darker, richer look to your concrete.
With its clean and rustic look grind and seal is becoming the preferred flooring choice for many industrial, commercial and residential properties in and around Brisbane
We use high-performance concrete sealers, that are designed to stand up to heavy traffic in different settings. Our sealers are resistant to chipping, scratching and other types of damage. As they are water resistant, liquids cannot penetrate, damage or stain your concrete.
As our concrete sealers penetrate the concrete surface, they wear away only when the substrate surface wears away, between 5-10 years depending on how heavy the traffic is.
Unpolished and untreated concrete is porous, which results in fine concrete dusting laying around your property. This concrete dusting is not only bad for your health, but can also damage delicate equipment and manufacturing good. By sealing your concrete and preventing the wear and tear, you are ultimately protecting your health and your investment.
With its smooth surface, sealed concrete won't harbor any dirt, dust or allergens, making it easy to clean, requiring only occasional mopping.
The sealed concrete also resists the marking of heavy equipment and staining from oils and chemical spills.
The most common places we find untreated concrete is basements, garages, foyers and entryways. The thing these places have in common is the constant access to water.
Concrete sealers are water tight, preventing water from soaking into the concrete and damaging it. It also prevents concrete joints corrosion, caused by water.
Being water tight makes grind and seal suitable for indoor and outdoor use.
Grind and seal doesn't require as much floor prep as polished concrete. Compared to polished concrete which can reach up to 3000 grid polish, with grind and seal, the concrete is grinded only up to 400 grid. This removes the added cost of lengthy floor preparation. The upkeep of grind and seal is also relatively lower than for polished concrete.
Grind and seal Brisbane comes in matte, satin or gloss finish. If you don't want to keep the natural concrete look, you can choose from an array of different concrete dyes and stains, to enhance the natural look of the concrete and to match with your interiors.
Almost any structurally sound concrete slab can be grinded and sealed. One exception is for newly poured concrete, where the concrete must be at least 28 days old and fully dried and cured.
If the concrete has higher level of moisture, sealing it can cause moisture and water being trapped in it and ultimately damaging the final finish.
For concrete sealing, we start by mechanically grinding the top layer of the concrete slap, until we remove all dirt and stains. This applies to newly laid concrete slabs.
We then repair any cracks, holes and hairlines.
We finish off the concrete with a penetrating topcoat.
With epoxy flooring, there isn't one size fits all. Different spaces require different flooring performance, like anti-slip, anti-microbial, impact and abrasion resistant, chemical resistant.
