Mix Design For Polished Concrete

Ingredients Of Concrete mix design Mix Design For Polished Concrete Ingredients Of ConcreteIf you’re just starting to build your home or business and you want polished concrete, you have the chance to specify a mix design that will allow you to have the perfect polished concrete surface. So, what’s the perfect mix design for polished concrete floors? Glad you asked.

Harmon Concrete has the added advantage of being one of the few concrete polishing companies that can pour the concrete as well as polish the concrete. We have our very own mix designs instituted with over a dozen concrete ready-mix companies.

Mix Design For Polished Concrete Floors

  • Do not add air to the concrete if at all possible. If you feel the need to have air-entrained concrete, try not to exceed 3%.
  • Use a minimum 3,500 PSI mix. Between 3,500 and 5,000 is preferred for polished concrete. 3,000 PSI is normal for concrete driveways, concrete sidewalks and patios.
  • Fly ash should not exceed 20 percent of the total cement.
  • It’s best not to use calcium chloride accelerators. NCA is a great replacement product that will accelerate the drying process.
  • If exposing the aggregate is planned, it’s very important to understand how the aggregate is going to look once it becomes polished.

If those simple steps are followed and the concrete contractor finishing the floor does a good installation job, you should be able to have the perfect polished concrete surface.

If you need help in determining whether or not your concrete is a suitable candidate for polishing, don’t hesitate to get in touch with us. Although most concrete can in fact be polished, feel free to have Harmon Concrete take a look to determine if your floors can be polished.

If you would like to see how your floor would look with polished concrete, visualize your polished concrete with our polished concrete visualization tool.
