Surface Preparation by Ecoflorâ„¢

Superprep Diamond Grinding

Ecoflor uses Superprep grinding to prepare most concrete floors prior to floor finish installation. Diamond grinding provides a smoother, more even surface profile which in turns provides a significant improvement in floor finishing, from thin film coatings to toppings for both new and existing floors.


Ecoflor has an extensive fleet of HTC grinding machines, all with the very latest in dust control systems. This allows us to prepare floors safely while operations in other parts of your building continue unhindered.

In 2010, Ecoflor invested in ride-on HTC grinding technology, the HTC 1500iXT and in addition to our walk-behind HTC machines, no floor is to big for Ecoflor. We can prepare large concrete floor areas quickly and economically for resin floor finishes, or grind and polish to a high gloss, polished concrete finish.


Captive Shot-Blasting

Ecoflor can prepare existing and new concrete floors to receive toppings using captive shot-blasting. This provides a textured surface and can also be used to prepare steel to SA2.5, the standard required for resin floor installation.



Latex & Adhesive Removal

Using our fleet of grinding machines, large areas of latex, tile adhesives and bitumen adhesives can be removed for subsequent floor coatings and toppings to be applied. Alternatively the floor can be ground and polished.


Paint and Coating Removal

Existing coatings and floor paint can be removed using our diamond grinding fleet. If Ecoflor are re-applying coatings, the existing coatings can be abraded using our grinders for a quicker, more economic re-coating option.

Remedial Concrete Grinding

Ecoflor are able to remove high-spots and level expansion joints to provide smoother running floors for fork-lift trucks. We can also carry out remedial grinding to damaged concrete slabs using our extensive grinding fleet.
