POLISHED CONCRETE MELBOURNE
WHY CHOOSE VISION SEAL’S POLISHED CONCRETE FLOORING?
Polished concrete flooring is fast becoming the most preferred floor covering for grocery stores, retail environment, restaurants, hotels and office buildings.
A concrete floor is often already installed in your space, just beneath existing floor coverings, waiting to be revealed and treated. Vision Seal can grind concrete floor surfaces, whether new or old, to a high-gloss finish that never needs waxes or coatings.
Polished concrete has superb durability and low maintenance costs. It combines function and practicality with a contemporary appearance, which can give your retail space, the brand image you’ve dreamed of.
These floors can also be coloured using UV resistant, solvent based dyes.
Each concrete surface is different in its density and surface texture and this creates its own unique ambience. With the use of different top coats, the flooring surface can have matte, satin or gloss finish.
WHY OPT FOR POLISHED CONCRETE FLOORING?
Polishing increases the density of the concrete’s molecules, the hardness of your floor’s surface can be nearly doubled. This makes it more difficult to scratch or damage, even if you’re using heavy equipment regularly.
- Resistant to moisture transmission issues
Polished concrete allows the floor to breathe and eliminates issues that arise with other flooring materials that seal off the concrete. Because the surface is hard and solid, the floor does not retain dust, debris or dirt particles.
- Less maintenance and longer service life:
Polished floors are easy to clean, requiring only occasional damp mopping. The glossy surface of polished concrete resists the marks of high foot traffic. With proper maintenance, your polished concrete floor can outlast any other flooring solution, lasting the full lifecycle of your retail space.
- High light reflectivity
Important for many retail and commercial spaces, that want to project a bright, clean and professional image. Also saves energy by reducing artificial lighting requirements.
Vision Seal can help you choose the level of sheen, that meets your maintenance and aesthetic requirements.
Concrete flooring is one of the most environmentally friendly building materials available. It can help to improve air quality and even cut down on your heating bills. Polished concrete does not require hazardous coatings, cleaners or adhesives.

HOW IT’S DONE
Concrete polishing is a flooring option in which either new or existing concrete is ground for exposure using a triple head planetary grinder. Minor cracks and surface imperfections are grouted and filled, the concrete slab is then densified to harden it. After that, the concrete is polished using a series of diamond pads that slowly get finer with each polish. This allows the concrete surface to be polished. A penetrating sealer is used in the final stage to enhance the floor and help it to maintain its durability over a long period of time. Usual traffic may resume on the area immediately following the above process, therefore there is no need to wait days for full cure-reducing downtime and therefore expenses!
