Perfect CC Midwest specializes in mechanically polished concrete and follows manufacturer specifications for all projects across the Midwest. Our strict concrete polishing specifications allow us to lead the way in flooring longevity, maintenance, and manufacturer warranties.
SILEX SYSTEMS® CERTIFIED CONCRETE POLISHING CONTRACTORS
The polished concrete industry is booming but unfortunately, there is no current standard for contractor procedures. It’s hard to compare finished products, equipment, and pricing in such a diverse industry. Perfect CC Midwest utilizes Silex methods to achieve proven results, floor after floor.
Silex provides industry-leading chemistry and diamond tooling to produce high-quality floors quickly and efficiently. They have developed a scientific reading system for concrete surfaces using RA surface measuring equipment. As a Silex Systems contractor, we are required to utilize RA meters during the polishing process.
“Silex System® utilizes a scientific approach in our polishing process that produces fully refined floors to their maximum potential while creating repeatable and quantifiable results. By taking this approach, we are able to provide a way to describe the exact means and methods to produce the floors the architects or owners ask for in the first place while also providing exact specifications that are consistent and are always a cut above industry standards.”
Chemistry-Driven RA Numbers
With Silex System’s chemistry, it’s hard for competitive manufactures to live up to our polished concrete. Perfect CC Midwest embraces Silex System’s chemical hardeners, cutting agents and cleaning materials.
RA profile readings measure the concrete surface within a millionth of an inch. Typically, a MAHS profile meter drags a needle across the floors’ surface and returns with a numerical profile. The lower the RA number, the less roughness exists in floor. Therefore, the floor has a higher surface tension, promising resistance to abrasion and overall longevity.
While our concrete flooring appears highly reflective and smooth, it is not a slip hazard. Silex Systems have enhanced slip resistance rooted in RA measurements. Roughness is taken out of the floor, allowing your full footprint to make contact with the surface. More surface contact means better slip resistance.
Minimal Lifetime Cost
Protect your investment with flooring maintenance. RA Measurements can be taken to monitor the floors needs and assure fair services are being rendered. Perfect CC Midwest’s Silex Systems installers routinely check the floor and advise maintenance procedures.
Our skilled contractors take the correct maintenance measures, such as dust mopping, damp mopping and interval polishing for every project. With these actions in place, a Silex Systems Polished Concrete floor can never incur the repeated installation costs that traditional topical floors incur.
