Product Usage Instructions

Concrete Surface Preparation

For preparing concrete surfaces before polishing:

  1. Determine surface hardness using the MOHS test kit.

  2. Select the appropriate plate configuration and speed range
    based on surface hardness.

  3. Use the recommended tooling for specific surface conditions
    (Hard Surface, Medium Surface, Soft Surface).

Polished Concrete System

Follow these steps for a polished concrete finish:

  1. Determine surface hardness using the MOHS test kit.

  2. Step 1 – Metal Grinding: Use TearDrop tooling
    with specified grits to prepare the surface.

  3. Step 2 – Transition Stage: Use Achromic or
    Hybrid tooling to remove marks and prepare for densifying.

  4. Step 3 – Densifying: Apply ULTRAdensifil to
    harden the floor.

  5. Step 4 – Matte Polishing: Use ULTRASHINE Resin
    with 200 Grit to achieve a matte finish.

  6. Step 5 – Polishing: Use different grits of
    ULTRASHINE Resin to achieve semi-gloss or high-gloss finishes.

  7. Step 6 – Sealing: Apply ULTRAguard Sealer to
    protect and seal the polished surface.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Q: How do I determine the appropriate tooling for different

surface conditions?

A: Refer to the MOHS test kit results and choose the tooling
recommended for Hard, Medium, or Soft surfaces based on the
hardness range.

Q: What should I do if my coating is thicker than 1/8

(3mm)?

A: Use the specified PCD Carbide tooling for thicker coatings
that require more aggressive removal.

Q: How can I achieve a high-gloss finish on polished

concrete?

A: Utilize ULTRASHINE Resin with grits higher than 1500 or blue
diamond pads for achieving a high-gloss shine.
