The Concrete Polishing Association of America (CPAA) defines polished concrete as the act of changing a concrete floor surface, with or without aggregate exposure, to achieve a specified level of gloss using one of the listed classifications; Bonded Abrasive Polished Concrete, Burnished Polished Concrete, or Hybrid Polished Concrete.



Benefits of Polished Concrete:

Retailers, schools, car dealers, offices, restaurants, manufacturing plants, and warehouse facilities are choosing polished concrete as a finished flooring because of its competitive advantages, as well as its aesthetic values. Some of the benefits of polished concrete are:

  • Cost Savings: traditional floor-covering materials are eliminated when the existing concrete slab is polished.
  • Light Reflectivity Properties: building owners, architects, and designers select polished concrete as it decreases the need for interior lighting, as well as projects a clean, professional image.
  • Extremely Low Life-Cycle Cost: annual maintenance costs and life cycle costs are typically a fraction of traditional floorcoverings or epoxy resinous floor coatings.
  • Unaffected by Moisture Vapor Transmission Problems: a polished concrete floor will allow concrete slab moisture to transmit and “breathe”. Virtually all other floorcoverings, flooring adhesives, and resinous floor coatings are extremely sensitive and have strict moisture limitations.
