As the slurry is vacuumed into
the tank, the slurry and debris are captured while the
filtered water flows into the tank
When activated, the integrated
sump pump automatically discharges the gray, filtered
water from the tank to your clean water container.
In both of these
applications, the SV 2000 provides incredible productivity while
saving you valuable resources - time, labor and

There is a
beginning, middle and an end to polishing a floor. Without a
doubt the biggest and most neglected area that concrete
polishers are making is "allowing all of your hard
work" to be maintained by the store's maintenance personnel
or an outside cleaning company.
up a cleaning program and knowing which pads and chemicals to
use crucial, for the maintenance of a polished concrete or stone
floor is nothing like floors that involve waxing (i.e. VCT).
Like your car,
regular maintenance keeps it running properly. A polished
floor is no exception - cleaning needs to be done
For the concrete
floor polisher, walking away
from your masterpiece and allowing someone else to profit from
it is senseless.
Maintenance for a Polished Floor. Does it work?
Lets define the
"problem", it is a fact that any type of polished
surface - including concrete and marble - will lose its sheen
and clarity in a given amount of time. This causes the
floor to have a dingy appearance and doesn’t have the light
reflectivity it once had when originally polished.
When a floor is initially polished
you can look down at the
floor about five feet in front and see a near perfect
reflection of the lighting in the ceiling.
When the floor
gets worn down from deferred maintenance the reflection of the
light bulbs in the floor nearly disappears. This is
especially true in the middle portions of isles, front entry
ways, and action alleys. To aggravate the situation, the
sides of the isles where there is no foot or wheel traffic
remains in excellent shape.
So why did the
polished concrete loose its luster? Polished concrete is
really not much different than a stone product. It is
polished by literally scratching the concrete with finer and
finer grits of diamonds. During the process concrete
densifiers are added to aid in the abrasion resistance of the
concrete floor. Some people call these products
"hardeners or densifiers". All of this is
important to note because the polished concrete surface loses
its sheen the same way it received it - by scratches.
Now that we have an
understanding of how polished concrete losses it’s sheen, let’s
ensure that it doesn't. Basically, it comes down
to Daily and Periodic Maintenance.
maintenance is doing some "light
polishing or burnishing" to rejuvenate the floor as
maintenance is done typically "in house" by
employees. Store employees are usually involved in
keeping abrasives off the floor by dry mopping and auto
scrubbing the floor daily. It can’t be impressed
enough the importance of knowing what chemicals to used
as well as keeping track of the "proper" pads
being used on the auto scrubber.
Chemicals that were meant to clean other floor types (such
as your garage floor) will literally destroy the appearance of
the polished concrete floor because of the chemical and
physical change the polished floor went through during the
polish phase. And when pads are used that are way beyond there
expected life, instead of gently removing dirt from
the floor they are acting like sandpaper.
This issue is even more common on floors that have been dyed
and then further protected with guard or stain sealer
products. How too often do you think or hear, "I'll just
clean it with water". We don't wash our hands with just water so we shouldn't consider cleaning an
Soap serves as a
surfactant to help pull dirt out of the floor and helps the
cleaning pad or mop head glide more easily over the
surface. Many soaps also have a small amount of
densifier (the product used to harden the floor while
polishing) in them which insures that the floor stays as
hard as possible, thus offering more abrasion resistance
Other soaps are
made to work with the protectant that is put on the polished
concrete, better known as "guard".
TIP: With any
polished concrete floor you find out what
chemical manufacture’s product was used to harden and
densify the floor, and stick to their soap program. While using the
proper soap isn't the saving grace for keeping a floor
looking good forever, it is definitely part of the
system. NOTE: After all of this discuss on using the
proper soap, chemicals are relatively inexpensive. Especially
if you use an ECS auto scrubber. These machines use
80% less water and chemicals than any other scrubber because
their brushes and pads are spinning at 600 rpm. This
relatively new "mechanical" approach to scrubbing
(versus the traditional 180 rpm) also increases the shine on
a polished floor by 3:1! And because these machines
use less water and chemicals, "dumps and refills are a
thing of the past" - hence, labor is reduced between 30
and 50%! For additional information on
this type of auto scrubber, see below.
is generally performed by knowledgeable personnel who know and
understand the art of a "polished hard floor
surface." Various machines, pads and chemicals are
used. To know the complete process takes skill and
knowledge, and more than just being able to operate an auto
scrubber. Typically, the process involves using a couple of finer diamond grit passes and
another light application of densifier if needed, followed by an
application of stain guard if the floor needs protection from

Performs the 3 Types of
Polished Finishes as defined by the Concrete Polishing
Association of American (CPAA):
True Grind and Polish .
Under this classification Metal Bond Diamonds in the 16 to 150
grit range are use for heavy grinding. Then the honing
stage begins with resin diamond pads, proceeding in stages to
800 - 3000 grit as a final polishing step.
Resin-Only Polish .
When concrete surfaces are reasonably flat, polishing can
begin with semi-metal or straight resin bonded diamond
pads. Using these pads, polishing typically starts at 60
- 80 grit and proceeds to 800 - 3000 grit as a final polishing
Topical Polish .
Instead of using a heavy weight diamond grinding machine
(which typically runs between 400 and 1300 rpm), a high speed
burnishing machine with a minimum speed of 1000 rpm's is used
with maintenance floor pads that have diamonds embedded into
Impregnated Floor Pads.
Once the floor’s
shine has been completed, you can use these pads on
a Floor Grinder, Sander, Polisher, Burnisher or Auto Scrubber to
daily clean and shine the floor.

All Diamond Pads Are Manufactured Equally! Besides the advantage
of the microscopic diamonds that are impregnated into
all diamond pads, the Shine-On Diamond Pads are the only
that also contain Ferron® which is the only substance that
can scratch a diamond. Because of their truly
unique structural properties, their cleaning and polishing
results - and especially their life - are all substantially
greater than any other impregnated pad that only
