CGP Polishing Procedure

CGP Polishing Procedure

Once your concrete slab has been laid allow 7-28 days to cure. In regards to a new Development we prefer to Grind the slab before any construction starts therefore we can grind the slab as flat and even throughout. At this stage we require customer to be on site to approve the amount of exposure they request. If construction has started or it’s an existing house, we would prefer to leave off skirting boards, Joinery off and final coats of Painting are preferred to be done after we are finished, unless painting is already completed.

Stages

  1. Grind with Coarse 30 Grit to expose amount of Aggregate and Flatness of slab making sure the whole floor is Ground Even and customer is satisfied with amount of exposure.
  2. Grind with Medium 60 Grit to remove 30 grit scratches.
