As a designer, architect or end user looking at the options for polished concrete you have no doubt seen the finish time and time again in retail stores, public areas and office spaces.

Using tattooing techniques, we can remove surface microns on the concrete to give the illusion of a two tone pattern effect on your floor to elevate your polished concrete floor and give your space a unique feature.

Maybe you want floral patterns, vines or a really unique pattern on your floor, talk to us as we want to make your vision a reality.

Polished Concrete with Etching (2)

CREAM POLISH OR CLASS A

Minimal Aggregates Exposed

Minimal exposure of fine aggregates or sands, this look maintains the finish created by the power troweling completed by the concrete finishers. No aggregate is exposed in this option. Any staining or flaws in the existing concrete whether it be new or old will be visible using this option due to the minimal grinding.

SALT AND PEPPER OR CLASS B

Fine Aggregates

A Cut depth of 1/16 of an inch using specialized floor grinders, exposes fines and sand, with no larger aggregate seen. A high floor flatness requirement is critical to maintaining a uniform appearance. With older concrete slabs, you could potentially see a spots of no aggregates in the polish and other areas see a few larger aggregates within the floor due to the floor no being a flat surface.

FULL EXPOSURE OR CLASS C

Medium Aggregates

A Cut depth of 1/8 of an inch exposes small to medium aggregate. High Floor Flatness requirement is critical to maintaining a uniform appearance. With older concrete slabs, you will get some fine aggregates and some larger aggregates within the floor finish due to the floor slab not being a flat surface.

LARGE AGGREGATE EXPOSURE OR CLASS D

Large Aggregates

Cut depth of 1/4 of an inch on the concrete, exposing coarse aggregates within the finish giving a similar appearance to terrazzo flooring. With older concrete slabs, there is a good possibility to get a more consistent aggregates exposure on the floor to.
