Polished Concrete

Polished concrete is fast becoming the decorative flooring option of choice for many different businesses. This technique provides a cost efficient way to achieve a smooth, high-luster surface that can even be designed to simulate the look of polished natural stone.

We recommend using Päram 6000, which is a designer, self-leveling concrete that is high-strength and fast setting. The concrete can be stained or dyed to incorporate the colors and designs of your choice before it is polished. Päram does not promote the growth of mold or mildew, making it ideal for industries in which health and safety are key priorities.

Polished concrete is completed in a series of stages, making it possible to achieve various levels of sheen, ranging from satin to high-gloss, depending upon the objectives of the client.
