Concrete Cleaning Inc., is an approved contractor for FGS/PermaShine System.
The FGS/PermaShine process consists of a series of abrasive smoothing steps, when completed, produces an impressive concrete floor surface, both visually, and in terms of durability. When the grinding and polishing steps are combined with the application of a compatible, liquid chemical densifier, the result is a smooth, glossy, durable and attractive concrete floor. It produces an almost mirror-like floor that is exceptionally resitant to wear, dusting, marking and abrasion.
The process begins by grinding and smoothing a concrete floor with diamond-impregnated abrasive discs that are fitted to large, heavy floor grinding and polishing machines. Depending upon the original condition of the floor to be treated, the first step of the process typically begins with coarse diamond pads that level the floor surface. The process then moves through a succession of steps using progressively finer diamond pads, increasing the smoothness of the floor with each step. The original condition of the floor and the desired level of finished polish determine the selection and number of steps.
After completing the abrasive smoothing steps, the final step of the process is to apply two coats of a high-performance chemical densifier. ( FGS/PermaShine) The use of the chemical treatment is necessary to penetrate, densify and harden the exposed cement paste located in the top 1/16 to 1/8 of an inch of the floor. The resulting shine of the smoothing process is quite impressive, and takes concrete floors to a new visual level.
The importance of the chemical densifier cannot be overstated. Its purpose is to hold the shine, and to add many years to the expected life of the floor.
