Polished Concrete | Gloss finish full stone exposure 

Polished Concrete

Galaxy Polished concrete is our premium polished concrete process having the smoothest feel and with a mirror finish.

 “Polished concrete” is different to “Grind & Seal” as there is no top coat sealer applied, therefore no need for re-sealing in the future, there is also no curing or drying time so polished concrete can be walked on as soon as the process is completed.

 

Polished Concrete is a process of 3 different technologies to produce the finest hard wearing concrete surface finish.  Polished Concrete has a smooth glass / granite like appearance and texture, whilst still having a natural look and occasional minor imperfect characteristics similarly found in Terrazzo or Stone adding to the elegance.  The sleek contemporary look of polished concrete is why it is such a popular flooring choice for businesses and residential properties.
