Choosing the Right Concrete Tooling Manufacturer

What is Concrete?

Concrete is used in practically every form of construction in today’s industries. Concrete is a composite material of coarse aggregate that’s bonded together with a flowing cement. Concrete implements strength, density, as well as chemical and thermal resistance, AND pleases us with an essentially natural looking form. Concrete is one of the most ingenious inventions known to man and it didn’t take long before it dominated today’s ever-changing flooring industry.

When concrete is being mixed, before it’s spread on the floor, it’s churned vigorously with water. This rotating motion ensures ease when mixing the concrete and water properly. The churning action will also eliminate the formation of any air bubbles within the mix. It is necessary to remove all air bubbles as these can be later lead to fractures in the concrete. If it’s not treated in time, these fractures could develop into large cracks. Once the slab is poured and completely dry and settled, the surface is going to appear plain and dull. This is when your concrete floor becomes your canvas. Concrete polishing machines, tooling and chemicals will assist you in completely transforming those dull grey canvases into fascinating works of art!

Keeping it Clean with Residue Dust Shrouds

Usually, when we use angle grinders to cut or grind, the entire place ends up getting covered in dust, making the whole cleaning and maintenance ordeal seem like a never ending battle. Thankfully there are specialty tools and machines that help reduce dust, one in which is referred to as dust shrouds for angle grinders.

What is a Dust Shroud?

A dust shroud  is like a chamber that’s built around the abrasive, helping capture the dust particles that are being generated by construction; this being done with the assistance of a vacuum. Dust shrouds are supposed to seal around the base, however if the vacuum is turned on, it becomes suction-like which could lock the shroud, and that could be dangerous.

A dust shroud for angle grinders is ideally used by moving over the designated areas of dust that you’re aiming to collect. The process is simple, just switch it on, and move in or around the place where you want to begin. You will begin to see the concrete floor grinder cutting and the dust shroud efficiently removing the dust, leaving you with a floor that is smoothed and beautifully polished. The shroud is specifically designed so a vortex of the moving air removes almost 95% of the dust that’s being generated.

Advantages of Dust Shrouds

Contractors in the field and those whose profession uses dust shrouds for angle grinders for extraction of dust, dirt and debris get to take full advantage of the wonderful health benefits. Silicosis of the lungs can be reduced or prevented just by using a dust shroud.

Dust shrouds for angle grinders typically come in two sizes; 7″ and 4″ depending on the size of the angle grinder and are designed to work easily and efficiently, getting as close as  1/16th of an inch close to the wall, without having the need for a removable edge piece!

How To Clean Your Concrete Floors

Are you unsatisfied with the finish of your concrete floors? Are you wondering how to clean concrete floors, slabs or your countertops? Whether it be your patios, sidewalks, driveways or other floors, our professionals have the knowledge, experience and reliable products to bring your concrete floors back to life safely and naturally!

Concrete floors get dirty very easily, although they take up dirt very gradually, they need to be cleaned at regular intervals. Overtime, they collect a lot of grime from dirty, oily cars parked in driveways, heavy foot traffic, spilled grease, etc. Cleaning them periodically will help assist in their everlasting beauty and their extended life.

  1. First and foremost you must determine which tools and cleaners will be best suited for cleaning your particular type of concrete flooring. This is because different concrete needs a different cleaning procedures.
  2. Next, they prepare the area by sweeping loose debris off the floors by using a push broom and/or later dust mop (a soft cotton one). A vacuum could also be used to extract dust and debris from any driveways. A canvas cloth can be put on any plants or other ornament-like things laying around to avoid any permanent damages due to sprays.
  3. For indoors concrete such as an enclosed patio or garage, a mild cleaner is preferred. A mix of good old oxygen bleach in approximately five gallons of warm water is used. The solution is sprayed thoroughly over every section. It is required to wait for almost twenty minutes to let the bleach do its thing.
  4. The dirt that was actually beneath the layers is mopped with scrub or patio broom whilst rinsing and wringing the broom/ mop after every few minutes. The dirt is washed away with clean warm water to rinse any residue.
  5. Using concrete cleaning chemicals such as rejuvenating cleaners, stain protectors, and lithium densifiers cleans the concrete vigorously. To clean driveways of fresh motor oil spots, an old fashioned litter is spread over it and left overnight, the following morning the floors are swept off and rinsed thoroughly. A variety of commercial chemicals and solutions such as TSP and muriatic acid are used for getting rid of different types of stains.

Understanding the A to Z of Chemical Floor Hardeners

What are Chemical Floor Hardeners?

Chemical floor hardeners are used to chemically seal and harden concrete floors. These chemical hardeners act as a protective sealant to withstand great impact and strengthen the flooring substrate permanently. Floor hardener applications are specially ideal inside industrial plants, warehouses, storage silos, sewage plants, chemical processing facilities, refineries, and heavy pedestrian floor traffic areas, such as civic centers, sports arenas, stadiums, hospitals, airports, and museums.

These chemical floor hardeners are formulated out of chemical reactive products which help in hardening the concrete surfaces, compared to untreated concrete. The chemical hardeners are ready to use, liquid-based and comes with easy to follow instructions. Chemical Floor Hardeners penetrate the concrete surface, filling any holes on the surface. This process produces a considerably thicker, reliable floor with enhanced durability.

Advantages

  • High Gloss Appearance
  • Longer Life Expectancy
  • Prevents moisture and other foreign matter.
  • Abrasion resistance and dust proof
  • Protects against scratching or peeling.
  • Improves light reflectivity.
  • Ready to use from container and easy to apply.
  • VOC compliant.

Safety Hazards

Chemical floor hardeners are non-combustible products, however if you come in direct contact with the chemical it may result in irritation in eyes or on the skin. It is extremely imperative to ALWAYS wear safety gear while working with any concrete chemical.

How To Clean A Concrete Patio

There are plenty of answers to the question at hand: ‘How To Clean A Concrete Patio’? Before the cleaning procedure has taken place, the fact that has to be taken into account is that no concrete patios can be treated equally.

Over a period of time, due to regular use of concrete flooring, grows a layer of grime and dirt, mildew or algae. The floors may have been ill-decorated with spills, oils, grease and other stains. Maintaining a concrete patio is essential for environmental hygiene thus it has to be cleaned periodically.

Routine Cleaning

In accordance to stains, spraying commercial chemicals such as degreasers or a mix of oxygen bleach or rust remover is doable. The cleaners are sprayed onto the floors and are left overnight or at least a few hours. Finally, once the cleaners have done their things, a pressure washer is used.

Because some concrete cleaning chemicals contain a strong amount of chlorine, ammonia, hydrogen peroxide etc., the residue needs to be rinsed exhaustively with a garden hose.

Sealing and Waterproofing your Concrete Patio

After the cleaning task is completed, the concrete is sealed and waterproofed for protection against attracting grime sooner than supposed to. Concrete sealers are applied evenly to the surface to make it able to resist water and left for at least 24 hours. Sealed floors are able to withstand extreme temperatures more effectively than unsealed concrete.
