Concrete, the most widely used construction material in the world, is now being transformed into a finished floor. For decades, the flooring industry has been centered on covering up concrete floors with petroleum based products such as VCT and carpet. Polished concrete is a floor that is environmentally friendly, user friendly, aesthetically pleasing, and durable. The raw material has already been installed; it merely needs to be polished.
The manufacturing sector, government sector, commercial sector, and retail sector has become intrigued by the resilience of polished concrete. Over the past decade, many advances have been made in the process of polishing concrete. The process is somewhat similar to the process of polishing natural stone, but diamond tooling technology has been advanced and specialized to work on all variations of concrete.
SASE Co. is the leader in diamond tooling technology. When it comes to diamond tooling, we have forged the way in developing the new technologies our competitors seek to copy. Sase is always vigorously pursuing solutions to the industry’s developing needs and providing customers not only with reliable equipment and tooling, but also with unsurpassed service and support in the field. Our company was the first in the polished concrete industry to offer onsite training. Our company is committed to helping the contractor succeed, because nobody understands more than us that our success, and the success of the industry, relies upon the success of each contractor.
In these challenging economic times, polished concrete offers beauty and prestige for the right price. It is the floor of today, because it makes sense in every way. Not only is a polished concrete floor a green floor, but it also offers the beautiful look of a natural stone floor with high reflectivity for the price of more traditional commercial floors. It is an affordable alternative to a higher end floor such as terrazzo, and it is an alternative to more commonly used flooring choices such as vinyl composite tile, because a polished concrete floor is very inexpensive to maintain and offers a lower static co-efficient of friction than floors that require a wax or sealer.
We are fortunate in these times to be in a growing and promising new industry, and we look forward to an even brighter future. We hope any of you who are just learning about polished concrete will come to Sase Co. with any of your polished concrete questions. We hope those of you who are novices will continue to come to Sase for your polished concrete needs.
