Diamond polished cement toppings
Diamond Polished Cement Toppings are among the most beautiful and durable floors on the market.
The placement and refinishing of these floors is a multi-phase operation requiring specialized materials and a trained crew. These floors are the perfect representation of our company’s work as they are unique in beauty and are produced by highly skilled artisans.
Our cement matrix of choice is CTS Rapidset TRU high strength cement, but other similar products can be used upon architect specifications (Ardex, Mapei). In order for the installation to be successful it is mandatory to properly prepare and profile the existing slab, also install metallic dividers or plan for control joints saw cutting, mix the cement with a special mixing station, place the cement with special tools, finally diamond polish the surface with the right tooling.
The diamond polishing process on cement is most similar to the one on concrete. Because of the higher compression strength of the TRU cement we can achieve a sheen even higher than on concrete. Integral pigment and acetone based dyes can be used to create vibrant, unique colorations and designs. We can also add colored glass or stone chips mixed in with the cement to obtain amazing effects.
