Your Concria floor is available in three concepts

Polished concrete floor has become the ultimate flooring option for big-box retailers, warehouses, convention halls, and production facilities around the world. Thanks to our award-winning Concria system, concrete polishing can be fast, effective, and fun. As an added benefit, Concria system makes concrete longer-lasting and more affordable than traditional options like epoxy or tile.

For new and old concrete floors

Concria transforms old and new concrete floors alike into beautiful, glossy surfaces. Our patented Concria process mechanically grinds and polishes the floor surface, creating an extremely smooth and 100% dust-free floor.

 It is possible to use our Concria system on new floors during the construction phase, and on existing concrete floors with or without coatings. When used on existing floors, the final appearance of the polished concrete floor is dependent upon the previous condition and treatment of the surface.

 

The three most popular concepts for industrial or design floors

Our Concria™ floor system is available in three different concepts, and we are confident one of them will meet your specific aesthetic goals: Concria™ PRO, Concria™ SATIN and Concria™ UNIQUE.

Get the best out of your floor with a highly-polished “salt and pepper” finish

If you want the very best for (and from) your floor, Concria PRO is the polishing concept to choose. Concria PRO transforms concrete into a beautiful, high-gloss floor, and is ideal for demanding environments that call for a low-maintenance, high-performance system.

Concrete floors with a satin finish

Concria™ SATIN is the same “salt and pepper” floor, just with a satin gloss. Aggregates are exposed, but there are three fewer steps to completion than there are for ConcriaPRO. Concria SATIN includes just 5 different polishing steps for new and old floors, creating a beautiful, durable flooring with a smooth satin finish.

Shiny and unique concrete

If you would like a truly unique finish for your new concrete floors, Concria UNIQUE is the right choice. In Concria UNIQUE, the aggregates are not exposed, and the concrete paste is polished without being ground away. This results in a rich, cloud-like finish that is still high-gloss – it’s stunning!

Several factors will affect the final appearance of your polished concrete floor

The successful completion of a Concria diamond polished floor is dependent upon the quality of the concrete slab on which the polishing will take place. Concria Team professionals can offer insight into how to achieve the very best finish possible, including:

  • Floor flatness/levelness criteria
  • Concrete mix design
  • Placing concrete
  • Finishing the surface
  • Floor reinforcement
  • Concrete curing method
  • Floor protection during construction

Grinding depth

By strategically choosing different grit sizes, you can control how deeply you grind into the concrete surface. The grinding depth will then determine the degree to which the stones are exposed, and subsequently, control the finished appearance of the polished concrete floor.

Polishing level

Different grit sizes also determine your floor’s level of polish. Highly-polished concrete can be like looking into a mirror, while a matte surface is not nearly as reflective.

Add color to your concrete!

Bringing a little color into the equation is simple! You can either add colorful dry-shake toppings or add pigments directly into the cement. There are also colorful, polishable overlays and toppings on the market that you can choose from.

Concrete Polishing Council’s polished concrete specification charts

There are many different charts and specifications for polished concrete floors all over the world. One of the most well-known is the Concrete Polishing Council (CPC), a specialty council of the American Society of Concrete Contractors (ASCC). This council has two specification charts for polishing contractors, concrete contractors, designers, and facility owners.

Polished concrete Appearance Chart and Aggregate Exposure Chart

The Aggregate Exposure Chart classifies three different levels of exposure based on the amount of visible aggregate. This chart also classifies four different levels of gloss. With the Concria system, you can create every class and level of exposure and gloss, ensuring that you achieve exactly the finish you need.
