How to diamond grind your concrete floor
Removal of thin hardened concrete surface layer using closely spaced diamond saw blade mounted on the high speed rotating drum of a grinding machine. The key to a successful floor coating application is correct floor surface preparation. Diamond surface grinding is highly regarded as the preferred method of pre floor finish installation by coating and floor covering manufactures.
Diamond grinders use horizontally rotating discs to clean, level and smooth the concrete surface. The discs are encrusted with industrial diamonds, which abrade the surface. Most diamond grinders have full vacuum extraction that will significantly reduce the level of dust produced by the grinding process. Well-executed diamond grinding completely removes laitance and levels off imperfections on the concrete surface. This method produces a flat, smooth surface with a profile ideal for all coatings applied by roller or applicator. It is recommended that experienced contractors be engaged to diamond grind your floor. Diamond grinders can also be
hired from specialist equipment suppliers.
