Our Expert Concrete Coating Technology
Here at AAAdvantage Concrete Coatings, we strive to always go above and beyond the expectations of our customers. That’s why we use the industry’s best tools and technology to ensure every completed floor is an example of our best work.
Using state of the art tools and technology, we strengthen and protect floors and increase both their safety and lifetime in residential and commercial applications.
Both new and older floors require proper preparation before any coating can be applied. That’s why we always start a project by choosing the best method for the coating we will install.
Diamond grinding is a process by which we remove a thin layer of the concrete surface using diamond impregnated segments. This process smooths the surface, opens the concrete pores to accept the coating and also serves as the cleaning process. Generally this process is used for thin-mil coating systems.
Some of the Benefits of Diamond Grinding Include:
- Creates a porous receptive surface
- Flattens out uneven surfaces
- Profiles concrete to necessary specifications
- Cleans concrete surface
- Environmentally friendly preparation process compared to acid etching
Shot blasting is another method, like diamond grinding, for preparing the concrete surface for high build self-leveling protective coating applications. This method strips the surface, cleans and profiles it, removing any irregularities, stains, paint, etc.
Using shot blasting machinery and a range of steel shot, we remove just a layer of concrete, leaving behind a stronger surface. The repeated battering of steel shot also creates a textured pattern in the concrete, like diamond grinding, that makes for a stronger concrete coating bond.
Our shot blasting technology covers the ground quickly and keeps all materials enclosed beneath the machine, recycling unused shot as it goes. This makes shot blasting ideal for preparing indoor surfaces like commercial kitchens and showrooms.
Some of the Benefits of Shot Blasting Include:
- Safe for indoor applications
- Removes stains, paint and discoloration
- Prepares the surface for high build self-leveling concrete coatings
While the purpose of concrete coating is generally to strengthen and protect floors, design plays a big part in satisfaction of the finished product. We offer a wide variety of colors, patterns, and design options to allow you to create a floor unique to your project.
A clean, dry surface creates the best environment for concrete coating application. Just as you wouldn’t paint wood without first wiping it clean of sawdust, we wouldn’t dream of applying epoxy without first cleaning the concrete surface.
Our high-powered vacuum technology helps us remove any dust or dirt from the surface and edges leaving behind a clean, dry surface. Without any extra particles to get in the way, your chosen concrete coating will apply smoothly across the substrate, creating a strong bond that will protect your floor for years to come.
We take concrete coating seriously and use only the best tools and technology to get the job done right the first time. Contact us today to discuss your next project.
