CRMX® 3-Step Concrete Polishing System removes the complexities involved in the tooling and selection process.
CRMX® 3-Step Concrete Polishing System removes the challenges involved with selecting the proper tools in any polishing system. When our 3-step polishing system is utilized you get perfectly polished floors every time.
What are the Benefits
Our system reduces labor cost by up to 45 percent, requiring only 3 tools and 3 chemicals, which dramatically reduces your inventory. One process is used for every level of concrete hardness, so there is no more complicated diamond selection processes. We have proven our system is predictable and has reliable results.
It’s an easy system to train new employees, even those with no past polishing experience. Additionally, it allows contractors to remove the guesswork out of tool choice and the diamond selection, so the entire process is out of the operator’s control.
CRMX® 3-Step Concrete Polishing System also produces harder concrete at the surface, thus making it more resistant to surface abrasions such as normal foot traffic and shopping carts. Our system exceeds all SCOF requirements deemed by OSHA for being a safe floor. CRMX® 3-Step Concrete Polishing System is not reliant upon topical polish guards for gloss or clarity. You’ll get perfectly polished concrete floors every time, with results that are simple to replicate when the system process is followed consistently.
Step 1 Tool – Set the Canvas
(3/Case) Item #E84195
The Step 1 tool is designed to operate in conjunction with the CRMX Surface Refining Agent. This will remove the most difficult scratches on even the hardest concrete surfaces. This tool can follow: 6, 16, 20, 30, 50, 80, or 100 grit metal bonds in one easy step, drastically reducing labor and additional tooling costs.
CRMX® Surface Refining Agent
5 Gal. Pail Item #167405
55 Gal. Drum Item #167455
Apply at the start of Step 1 to aid in rapidly removing scratches and achieve high levels of clarity. Use with Step 1 and Step 2 tools. It will eliminate the need for lengthy grinding steps.
Step 2 Tool – Refine the Canvas
(3/Case) Item #E84197
This is the refinement tool in our system. This tool is made from natural earth materials and will not transfer spent resins on the concrete surface that cause contaminated finishes. The Step 2 tool will provide a scratch-free surface that can be sealed or continue with Step 3 for a higher level of refinement.
5 Gal. Pail Item #167505
55 Gal. Drum Item #167555
Apply after step 2 tool for a densifier and hardener in one ready to use formula. It is a colorless liquid which hardens and dust proofs concrete with nano-sized particles. The reacted surface creates an environment that does not welcome moisture or topical water spills. Once properly applied, the finished surface provides a substantial improvement in abrasion resistance and will significantly improve the durability of the surface, when compared to untreated concrete. The densified floor has to be completely dry before proceeding with the polishing tool.
Step 3 Tool – Polish the Canvas
(3/Case) Item #E84198
This tool is the single polishing tool in CRMX® 3-Step Concrete Polishing System. The Step 3 tool is constructed with the highest grade epoxy resins available. It was developed to produce the cleanest finishes in the industry. Average gloss readings rate approximately 70 and frequencies in the single digits.
CRMX® Acid Blocker
5 Gal. Pail Item #167605
55 Gal. Drum Item #167655
Apply after step 3 polishing to produce a high performance, ultra hard, watertight dust repellent surface that is chemical and acid staining resistant. It’s a supreme chemical blocking system that is formulated to perform in high pH environments and high traffic settings such as retail groceries, commercial facilities, and industrial floors. This blocker will leave concrete significantly harder and stain resistant. It provides a 60 percent increase in light reflectivity than untreated concrete surfaces without decreasing the coefficient of friction on surfaces. High speed burnish CRMX® Acid Blocker with a non-diamond high-speed burnishing pad after the chemical has completely dried.
