Why Consider Polished Concrete?
Polished concrete floors (HTC SuperfloorTM) are one of the most durable, easily maintained, natural and versatile floors in the world. The naturally beautiful surface is not only aesthetically appealing, but is durable, cost effective, environmentally friendly & the popular choice for domestic, commercial & industrial projects.
The polished concrete floor can also be retro-polished on an older good quality type floor. In some cases, concrete floor repair or self-leveling may be required prior to commencing the polished concrete process. Cutsue Ltd is able to offer a number of finishes for your HTC Superfloor.
When a concrete floor is poured, the stone aggregate settles below the surface leaving mainly cement at the upper surface. The HTC Superfloor process entails mechanically enhancing a newly cast or existing concrete floor. The concrete is ground step-by-step according to a well-defined process for achieving the desired characteristics.
Which HTC SuperfloorTM surface finish is right for you?
Polished concrete floors (HTC SuperfloorTM) are available in 4 different surface finishes and degrees of stone aggregate exposure: Bronze, Silver, Gold & Platinum. It’s the grinding depth and number of polishing steps that differentiate the finishes.
HTC SuperfloorTM Bronze: With its finely honed upper layer, Bronze is the simplest HTC SuperfloorTM. The aggregate will not be visible. This produces a smooth and gloss surface with some-what lower resistance to wear.
HTC SuperfloorTM Silver: Silver is a less glossy variant of Platinum because the grinding depth is the same. However, the polishing steps are fewer. It thus provides a matt but strong floor.
HTC SuperfloorTM Gold: Gold entails that the floor is not ground as deep as with platinum. However, the floor is polished to the same gloss.
HTC SuperfloorTM Platinum: Platinum is the best of the best. By repeatedly grinding and polishing the floor, you get a smoother, more even floor with more aggregate exposure, high gloss and unmatched resistance to wear. Platinum is the most popular surface finish and is a good choice for most applications.
