1. Tough and durable ‐ tyre marks and burns from fork trucks, vehicles and industrial machines are eliminated on a polished concrete floor as there are no resins to burn the surface.
  2. Decreased plant and machinery wear – rough and uneven surfaces are removed during installation to ensure the floor is smooth and curling joints are levelled. This allows plant and machinery to operate in an optimum, hazard and vibration free environment, thereby minimising the wear and tear on equipment.
  3. Increased strength ‐ there are dozens of reasons why concrete floors break as they age: rain damage, surface stress, improper curing, curled cold joints, joint shoulder failure, to name a few. Polished concrete eliminates these problems by removing the top surface of the old concrete floor (including any patchy, partial, or whole coatings) hardening the exposed surface beneath. Old, deteriorating, or weak concrete is strengthened, and its impact and abrasion resistance is increased.
  4. Low maintenance – as oils, paints and other liquids are repelled from permeating the concrete’s surface, maintenance is limited to regular cleaning. There is no need to wax or strip the floor, saving you significant cost and labour resources.
  5. Safety ‐ wet or dry, Cubic 8’s concrete flooring exceeds Occupational Health and Safety Standards in Australia as the friction coefficient of polished concrete is higher than many other flooring alternatives.
  6. Limited downtime – as no toxic or hazardous chemicals are used in the preparation of the floor, businesses can often remain in full production throughout the installation and polishing process.
  7. Cost effective ‐ polished concrete is one of the most economical, cost effective flooring alternatives on the market. The reduced costs associated with saved energy, reduced wear, limited maintenance, as well as its long lasting durability, ensure polished concrete is a wise and economical choice.
  8. Minimised dust ‐ in ordinary unpolished concrete, tiny particles of dust are pushed to the surface through an upward force (commonly called dusting). Dusting forces epoxies off the surface of the floor, making maintenance a costly priority.
