Grinding and Polishing Concrete
HyperGloss Grinding and Polishing System
The Hypergloss Grinding and Polishing System (HPG) is a proprietary system using only the highest quality German tools and Chemicals.
Due to high technology combinations, results can be achieved in 3 to 5 steps that are simply not attainable using standard systems.
It allows the user to achieve 3 basic finishes at any depth of surface removal.
This is controlled by the starting tool and grit, then stopping at the desired grit to achieve either no gloss as in the matte finish or higher shine like semi-gloss or gloss.
The chemical treatments are an exclusive Nano Technology blend that hardens the concrete, closes the pores and stops dusting and surface decay.
The sealer also minimizes the intrusion of staining agents into the concrete.
The 3 levels of finish are:
Matte finish (stop at 100 grit HyperGloss Pad)
Semi-Gloss (stop at 400 grit HyperGloss Pad)
Gloss. (Stop at 1500 grit HyperShine Pad)
Grinding depth is controlled by the choice of the first tool. A depth of 1 mm to 4 mm or more is easily achievable.
The tools are a special proprietary titanium bond multi-purpose tool that allows the user the freedom to use the same bond on all degrees of surface hardness and aggregate hardness without the worry of excessive wear or glazing.
Below are the tool names and approximate depth level for initial grinding.
Transition tools are used to remove the scratch pattern left by the metal bond segments.
Resin and metal bond combination segments allow for smooth cutting and a fine finish for subsequent grits.
When properly used there are no issues with tool marks or heavy scratches showing through the polished surface.
Chemical hardening and Pore Filling
After transition tools comes the first chemical treatment, which hardens the surface and densifies the concrete reducing the pore size and stopping the dusting.
This treatment also enhances the color of the concrete.
The final chemical treatment is to seal the concrete. There are two choices available:
First is our Aquaseal, which is a high quality exclusive water based formula. It is used when no color change is desired for the concrete. In an exterior application it has a lifetime of 5 — 15 years depending on weather and pollutants as well as cleaners being used. There is a matching maintenance cleaner available, which continues to seal the surface and will provide protection indefinitely.
Second is our ConcreteGuard Sealer, which is used when color enhancement is desired as well as some surface sheen. This also has a lifetime of 5 — 15 years when used in an exterior application.
For interior we have a line of patented Nano Technology surface sealers. This system is a two part process which uses our Proguard Primer and our Proguard Coat n’ Seal. They are very thin mil coatings that exhibit a natural look unique to only our system. They do not have the plastic coated look of most other acrylic surface sealers. They provide a high gloss with a very simple maintenance process and long life.
To achieve professional results the contractor must use a complete system designed to work harmoniously together. This requires workers who have been properly instructed in the use of the system and who have demonstrated the required skill level needed. We are available to provide training if necessary as well as on site inspection to assure that the correct procedures are being utilized to achieve the desired results. NewGrind’s commitment to simple excellence in machine, tool and chemical quality will give you the peace of mind needed to complete your projects to perfection in a timely fashion.
