The RetroPlate Concrete Polishing System® includes three basic steps performed by our certified applicators ensuring that every floor turns out just right.


GRIND

The first step is to grind the floor with industrial strength diamonds.  Grinding removes imperfections such as trail marks or scratches and exposes bare concrete by removing existing coating or mastics.  Grinding can be light to heavy depending on the desired level of exposed aggregate.  A new floor’s colored aggregate, recycled glass or other decorative material can be broadcast into the surface to be exposed during the grinding process.


DENSIFY

The second step is to densify the floor with RetroPlate®.  RetroPlate penetrates the concrete and chemically reacts to harden and seal floor by filling pores and creating a dense surface.  Densification is key to the long-term benefits of polished concrete.  Many densifiers on the market claim to work for polished concrete, but there is only one RetroPlate.


POLISH

The final step is to polish the floor with progressively finer diamond grits. This polishing procedure is what produces the sheen.  A floor can be polished to a matte, medium or high gloss finish.  Adding color or seeded material allows for unlimited possibilities for floor design.

The RetroPlate Concrete Polishing System® is installed by a network of factory approved applicators.  Contact Advanced Floor Products for a list of approved applicators in your area.
