Grind/Dye & Seal is a simple and economical way to transform any concrete floor. Grind and seal the natural gray for a modern, contemporary look, or add color to brighten up a space. The use of different sealers can achieve anything from a matte, natural looking finish to a rich, high-gloss finish. A “wet look” sealer can be used to enhance the natural color of the concrete giving it a rich, dark, wet appearance. The design options are endless with the dye and seal system. Our color system has 22 standard colors, but almost any custom color can be created. The dyes and sealers are eco-friendly.
The Grind/Dye & Seal Process
Whether or not the floor will first need to be ground will vary. Grinding is typically not necessary on new slabs. Older slabs or slabs with existing flooring will typically need some level of grind to either clean them or remove old flooring material or adhesives. Stained concrete slabs needing refurbishing may need to be ground depending on the type of sealer originally used and the amount of sealer currently still on the floor. A light grind on any slab is never a bad idea, however, because it cleans the floor and removes the top coating to reveal a very porous surface allowing the dye to penetrate deeper.
