One of our valued customers was contracted by the CFA Institute of Chasseneuil-sur-Bonnieure (France) to polish their concrete floors. An area of more than 3000 m2 were carried out producing a high gloss finish.
After several passes, starting with a metal bond then followed by resin bond diamond tools, a high gloss finish was achieved. As well as being aesthetically pleasing, polished concrete has many advantages. It has a high wear & perforation resistance and contrary to popular misconceptions, polished concreate is skid-proof (superior to 0,41 of the NF norm – British Pendulum Skid Friction Tester: 0,65 on average). That’s an antistatic & dust proof surface maintained only with water.
The CFA Institute of Chasseneuil-sur-Bonnieure chose this innovative, aesthetic & economical solution so there was no need to lay tiles.
