Grind and Seal Melbourne
Grind and Seal, also known as concrete sealing, is increasingly popular amongst residential, commercial and industrial clients as it can transform any concrete slab and make it shine and easy to maintain.
Whether you have a brand-new slab or are renovating your home or business premises and want to improve the look and durability of an old slab, we can turn your concrete flooring into an urban chic feature that looks amazing and withstands heavy foot traffic.
What’s Involved in the Grind and Seal Process?
The grind and seal process involves preparing the surface using a concrete grinding machine. We grind the concrete to expose the level of aggregate you want to feature and then repair any cracks or divots as necessary. We then grind the floor again to make it smooth and remove any contaminants if required. Finally, we apply high-grade concrete sealant which eventually dries and becomes a light-reflective shiny surface that looks amazing and is very easy to maintain.
For those who want a matt non-slip surface, we can include a non-slip component to the sealant to ensure your home or workplace flooring is just right.
Who is a Grind and Seal Suitable For?
A Grind and Seal is perfect for those wanting to transform their floors in a hurry and for a smaller price tag than a full mechanical concrete floor polishing, though the sealant may need to be reapplied every 5 years in particularly high foot-traffic areas to maintain a consistent level of shine.
With over 20 years of experience, our professional team offers our expertise to clients all across Melbourne, so get in touch with Concrete Grinding Solutions Australia on 0417 214 901 or 9761 7527 to request a Grind and Seal quote.

The type of concrete MPA, the aggregate density and the amount of damage to the concrete will determine the overall finished look.
That’s no problem and when we have finished it will be a sleek new concrete surface.
Once polyurethane and water base epoxy floors have cured Volatile organic compounds are extremely low.
Not if a non-slip additive is used. However, without this additive it can become slippery when wet.
The process involves using diamond discs that are mounted on a 400+ kilo grinder. This rough grit removes imperfections as it flattens the floor. After achieving the desired exposure level, a high grade coating is used to seal it. Special non-slip and UV additives can be added where needed.
Depending on the amount of traffic it receives, the durability of Grind and Seal floors allows them to last for 5 years or longer. To ensure a longer life, they can be re-sealed when necessary for a small cost.
Yes, but that is hard to do. Muriatic acid poured on the floor will result in etching and the shine destroyed by strong acids. Areas where etching have occurred can be repaired.
No. We use state of the art equipment that virtually eliminated all dust.
