The Grinder: What it Does to a Surface Made of Concrete
There are basically two main types of grinders for concrete: Handheld Grinders and Walk-Behind Grinders. Handheld grinders are smaller tools for concrete grinding that are better used for smaller areas and along edges or in corners. Walk-behind grinders are better suited for concrete grinding on medium to larger floor areas. A walk-behind grinder can cover a larger concrete area with a grinding area of 21 to 32 inches. Bigger industrial grinders may have a larger grinding area.
A concrete grinder uses diamond grinding pads that are designed to remove bumps on surfaces, can strip away existing finishes to prep for resurfacing, as well as other surface disparities.
Grinding: Grinding Process of the Concrete Floor Surface
At Concrete Floor Systems, our team of concrete grinding experts will run a grinder across the surface multiple times, using diamond grinding wheel with a variety of grits until the floor is ready for polishing. Typically, we start on the floor with a coarser level of grit wheel and progressively work down to a finer grit until the surface is finished to a point where it suitable for polishing.
This is not a Do-It-Yourself (DIY) type of project. Our professionals have a skilled eye that can identify when an additional pass may be needed or when the floor surface is ready for a final grit. Concrete grinders should be run by skilled technicians. the experts will know what appropriate combination of grinding discs, grit, passes, and bonding are needed to obtain the best look and finish for your floor surface.
