The Art and Science of Polished Concrete (Print Course)

Part of the appeal of polished concrete is the honest expression of the material. The base color of the cement paste (and aggregates if exposed) combined with the natural mottling, creates a unique visual element for each project. Designers can choose appearance and gloss levels, ranging from a soft satin to a highly polished reflection. Today, a broad palette of color created through the use of integral color and modern stains and dyes is available, and the designs can incorporate stenciling, etching, and custom graphics. This course focuses on normal-weight concrete slabs-on-grade.
