Grind & Seal

The GALAXY Grind and Seal process is an affordable flooring option that is suitable for both indoor and outdoor areas. 

This is the cheaper option for a "Polished Concrete Look" and is a cost effective flooring commonly used in homes, retail outlets, cafes, restaurants, hardware stores & warehouses, factories and commercial properties just to name a few, as an attractive low maintenance, hard wearing flooring finish that is resistant to many elements.

Grind and Seal is a process of grinding concrete to the desired stone exposure level removing as many scratches as possible,  filling minor cracks and surface imperfections to give the concrete a smooth level appearance, and then applying a clear or coloured high quality protective sealer to enhance wear and durability.

Advantages of Grind and Seal

Levels of Stone / Aggregate exposure
  • A full exposure gives a full stone effect,

  • Random exposure is where there are variances of stone showing

  • "Salt and Pepper" or Light Random exposure is when the concrete is lightly ground so that minimal stone is seen

  • Coloured sealers are opaque (not clear) therefore aggregate exposure is unseen

  • Options for exposure level may vary depending on the condition of the concrete

Grind & Seal - Maintenance
  • Coatings take 5-7 days to fully cure

  • Keep internal floors vacuumed and dirt free

  • Protective pads under furniture is recommended

  • Micro fibre mops are best for a streak free cleaning result

  • If using a cleaning solution use a PH Neutral Floor Care cleaning solution and rinse with clean water

  • Generally Sealers will need to be re-applied every 5-7 years depending on traffic
