Grinding is used to remove thinner coating, surface grime and sealers. This will help open the pores on the concrete to have a better bond with sealers and coatings. Diamond grinding uses special grinding plates to either take off certain coatings or leave a surface with a particular profile in preparation for a coating.
Diamond grinding uses:
- Roughen surface to prevent slipping (Husky Stadium job)
- Prepare concrete for a waterproof coating especially on vertical surface that we are unable to hit with our shotblaster which only hits horizontal surfaces
- Smooths out shotblasting tracks if the customer does not want to see the tracks left behind by a typical shot blasting process
- Prevent small vehicles from hydroplaning
