Summary of the Basic Polishing Steps

  1. Remove existing coatings (for thick coatings, use a 16- or 20-grit diamond abrasive or more aggressive tool specifically for coating removal, such as a T-Rex).

  2. Seal cracks and joints with an epoxy or other semi-rigid filler.

  3. Grind with a 30- or 40-grit metal-bonded diamond.

  4. Grind with an 80-grit metal-bonded diamond.

  5. Grind with a 150-grit metal-bonded diamond (or finer, if desired).

  6. Apply a chemical hardener to densify the concrete.

  7. Polish with a 100- or 200-grit resin-bond diamond, or a combination of the two.

  8. Polish with a 400-grit resin-bond diamond.

  9. Polish with an 800-grit resin-bond diamond.

  10. Finish with a 1500- or 3000-grit resin-bond diamond (depending on the desired sheen level).

  11. Optional: Apply a stain guard to help protect the polished surface and make it easier to maintain.
