What Are Grind & Sealed Concrete Floors?

“Grind and Seal” is an industry term for concrete floors that have a chemical-resistant polyurethane sealer finish, providing unique protective and aesthetic properties. Most of the time, the process of grinding and sealing involves passing the concrete over with a grinder to remove any contaminants and imperfections, and then the floor is cleaned and sealed with the sealer or seal system suitable to your preferences.

People choose grind and seal systems over alternatives such as concrete overlays or polished concrete floors due to its resistance to high abrasion and wear and tear. What is more, because grind and seal concrete floors are non-porous, they don’t stain easily and are naturally bacteria-resistant. For low-maintenance floors that provide your room a unique look and exceptional protective qualities, grind and seal floors are an excellent option.

Where Are Grind & Seal Concrete Floors Suitable?

  • Retail

  • Food Services

  • And More

Benefits of Grind And Seal Concrete

Why choose grind and seal concrete over alternative systems? One of the main reasons is that it works with any level of granite exposure:

  • Zero Exposure
  • Partial Exposure
  • Full Exposure

Zero exposure is where the top layer of the coating is taken off, leaving a smooth surface, such as in a garage or warehouse. Partial exposure goes a bit deeper into the concrete with grinding, for a consistently flat, polished surface. Lastly, full exposure goes deeper still, leading to the maximum amount of stones being exposed.

Unlike polished concrete floors, which are polished until they achieve the level of desired shine, grind and seal floors are ground down to usually around 60 or 80 grit and then coated with an epoxy sealant. The epoxy makes your floors not only shine but can add a wide variety of other benefits as well, depending on your property’s needs.

Five key reasons someone would choose grind and seal concrete flooring over polished concrete are:

#1: Price Considerations

Oftentimes, grind and seal floors are more affordable than polished concrete in both the long- and short-run. The reason for this is because they tend to require less preparation before the flooring can begin. Not only are preparation costs lower, they are also extremely durable and don’t require replacement for many years and require minimal maintenance. These things combined makes for a very affordable flooring system.

#2: Watertight

Many people choose grind and seal concrete floors in places where water damage is a risk, such as basements, kitchens, and bathrooms. Grind and seal flooring epoxy coatings protect your property from water seeping into your floors or walls.

#3: Speedy Installation

While polished concrete floors can take more than a week to install, grind and seal concrete floors can be installed in two to three days.

#4: The Shine

One of the reasons people choose to get polished concrete is for the shine. However, you can get the same shininess along with many other types of finishes with grind and seal floors as well.

#5: Slip-Resistance

In places such as warehouses and manufacturing plants especially, floors that are slip-resistant are extremely valuable. Get the shine and durability while also enhancing traction.

How Do You Choose A Grind & Seal System?

There are many different grind and seal systems for you to choose from. Premier Polishing Corp will help you find the system most suitable for your space and the desired look of your floors. The two things you have to choose are the type of grinder you’d like, which depends on the size of your room and its exposure level, and then also the sealant. Sealants can be either water- or oil-based, and can provide you with a matte, glossy, or satin finish. Multiple applications of sealant may be applied to achieve your desired look and to provide other qualities, such as greater impact-resistance and color.
