PolishedCrete, a leading concrete floor polishing contractor, has added another new piece of equipment to our fleet. This is a new Diamatic 780PRO and it’s the top of the line in Diamatic’s concrete grinding and polishing equipment. It weighs just under 1,000 pounds and has a grinding width of 30 inches. Its 23 hp motor can generate a tooling speed of about 1200 RPM.
The 780 uses a system of three disks that rotate in planetary motion, and you can see this unit is getting ready for some heavy grinding for surface-prep work. We often have to prepare existing concrete surfaces prior to new color and polishing. With the Diamatic 780 we can remove adhesive residues and existing coatings or smooth or flatten concrete slabs removing surface imperfections.
At PolishedCrete we’ll use this machine for both wet and dry polishing which both offer eco-friendly, dust free solutions. We can do either a straight forward grind and polish on grey concrete or provide a more decorative concrete solution with concrete floor stains or dyes polished up to a high shine. Whether you have an old or brand new concrete slab, we can turn it into a beautiful, durable floor and it is one of the most affordable and easily maintained flooring solutions available. PolishedCrete serves California and Nevada and has installed over 1 million square feet of polished concrete in the Bay Area alone!
