Densify / Dustproof / Harden
Older concrete, and concrete in hardworking environments can eventually begin to breakdown. Forklift traffic, foot traffic, and general wear cause dusting, pitting and spalling of concrete. Don't make the costly mistake of tearing out and re-pouring concrete, or covering the problems with a superficial concrete coating before you consider densifying or polishing your space.
Check out this review:
"Our floors were falling apart due to the constant wear and tear from operating 5 forklift trucks. Because the concrete was disintegrating, we had an issue with concrete dust settling on everything in the warehouse. We explored several options and decided to go with the Atlas Polishing solution. Our floors looked brand new after the polishing and densifying process. One year later, I can say that the floors still look brand new! We have eliminated our dust issues and we have a brighter warehouse due to the reflective aspect of the floors after Atlas worked their magic. It sounds too good to be true but I will vouch for the process!"
The densifying process:
Concrete densifiers are typically sprayed down on the floor and agitated is some way, but it really depends on which densifier we choose to apply. New concrete floors can be densified or hardened preventing future dusting and weakness. Older concrete typically will have to be ground before the application of a densifier.
Concrete grinding removes the top few layers of the slab. It can eliminate superficial pitting and spalling of the concrete floor. Patching material can be applied to deeper divots in the concrete. After the surface is patched and refined, the application of a densifier will harden the concrete up to 40 times. This will control concrete dusting and strengthen the surface to protect against heavy forklift traffic and other high traffic environments. This process will leave your old slab repaired and stronger than new!
