This is a truly exciting time for the Concrete Polishing industry. Thanks to the latest breakthroughs and discoveries, our industry is rapidly growing all over the world. This new wave of polished concrete advancements has brought about a variety of new tools and methods that can drastically change the way we do business. Unfortunately, as with any new advancement, there is a very wide variety of products to choose from that can be confusing, unreliable, and inconsistent. And that’s not even counting the products out there that don’t deliver what they promise. Suffice to say, with every concrete polishing innovation, there is no shortage of different products, techniques, and materials. The key is choosing the best one for your business.
The Scientific Concrete Polishing System was developed to provide a clear and simple concrete polishing system that contractors can easily adopt, architects can measure, and homeowners can trust for their concrete slabs all across the world. Our concrete polishing system is based on accepted science and creates quality, high gloss polished concrete floors that are scientifically proven to be better and longer lasting.
Our approach is to develop systems that can be measured, quantified and reproduced with simple techniques and science so that the contractors we support can confidently go out and educate their crews and clients to develop repeatable systems and produce consistent results.
Scientific Concrete Polishing has developed a next generation system that saves contractors time, money, and stress when polishing concrete floors. Our simple system is easy to learn, easy to apply, and can be taught to every member of your crew to increase productivity and provide clients with consistent results. Scientific Concrete Polishing bases its system on measurable and reproducible results, with each step being dependent on the results of the previous. No generic “paint by numbers” system, just a scientifically proven method that works for any contractor that implements it properly.
Scientific Concrete Polishing uses the greenest, most environmentally friendly chemicals, meaning you don’t have to endanger your crew’s health. This good for you, your crew, and homeowners, while saving you from potential OSHA fines. All in all, Scientific Concrete Polishing is a quality system that is healthy, eco-friendly, safe for your crew, and still delivers amazing polished concrete floors. Our system was developed with science, common sense, and forward thinking in mind. With Scientific Concrete Polishing, you’re getting a concrete polishing system that by far outperforms other systems.
By the Numbers
Like with most new concepts and methods, there is always pushback and skepticism, as there should be! It’s good to be a little skeptical when assessing any new idea, no matter what industry you’re in. Ra, (Roughness Average), DOI (Distinctiveness of Image), Haze, and gloss are all valuable measurements that allow us to incorporate systems and develop processes that we can repeat from slab to slab, no matter which team you have on the job. No system is perfect, but it’s a huge leap forward for concrete polishing technology. Ra is certainly not perfect, and comes with its own drawbacks, but it is certainly a step in the right direction and is much better than the usual “fingertip test”. By properly measuring your floor’s Ra, you’re beginning the polishing process with better insight than your competitors still using subjective opinions. Base your polished concrete business on measurable, quantifiable, and repeatable results and have an advantage over your competition. You no longer have to gauge floor refinement based on the thickness of your slurry, just check your Ra meter and act accordingly. Don’t leave your polished concrete floors to chance: choose a system that is measurable and scientifically proven to be of higher quality.
Scientific Concrete Polishing Cutter takes grinding and refinement to a whole other level. Used in the early stages of the process, this simple step drastically increases your tooling effectiveness using multiple patented cutting compounds while also strengthening the slab. This saves time, labor, and material on jobs while also producing a higher quality, better performing slab, all by introducing a simple system you can easily teach every member of your team. SCP Cutter starts you on your way to a better prepared floor and allows you to reach maximum refinement faster than ever before. SCP Cutter actually strengthens the slab while you grind, something other polishing products cannot claim. Our Cutter is, quite simply, the most valuable tool in your arsenal and gives the best ROI in the entire SCP product lineup. Now it’s up to you to get it on the slab and let it do its work.
Things change. Sometimes for the better, sometimes not. Our country, our bodies, and even our densifiers. First generation densifiers have been a great step for our industry, and have been very effective. But while the first generation has produced some truly awesome floors, the next generation is here. It’s time you take the next step to stay on top of the changing market and keeping your business moving forward. As you know, first generation densifiers use reactive metals to react with free lime (calcium hydroxide) left over from the concrete process to form Calcium Silicate Hydrate (CSH). The obvious drawback here is we just don’t know how much or where free lime is present in concrete when our team starts spraying your margins all over the floor.
SCP Hardener is different. We don’t use or rely on older chemistry and technology, and our hardener reacts both with CH and without. Using the purest form of densifier on the market, we are able to achieve results better than traditional densifiers in slabs with low lime presence. SCP Hardener works great even with overlays where there is often very low to no lime present. Our hardener does this all while having the only neutral pH formula on the market, making this the safest, OSHA friendly product you’re going to find. Without reactive metals, we also achieve the fastest, new-guy-on-the-job-friendly application. No more coming to the job the next day and seeing residue and whiting across the slab. Stop the process before it starts with SCP Hardener. SCP Hardener uses the purest form of colloidal silica for faster reactions, making it the highest performing hardener on the market today. Our patented neutral pH chemistry means easy disposal, less stress, and more savings for your business. Use SCP Hardener as part of the entire Scientific Concrete Polishing system for an easy to apply process that you can teach to your entire team with amazing results.

There are many benefits of the Scientific Concrete Polishing system, not just those listed here. Our products and techniques are informed by breakthrough science and we will continue to improve our system based on science as it becomes available. Too many concrete polishing systems are stuck in the same routine, thinking they have all the answers. Scientific Concrete Polishing takes a scientific approach to concrete polishing and strives to provide the latest and greatest products, techniques, and education as more and more advancements come to the forefront. With Scientific Concrete Polishing, you’re getting cutting edge technology, measurable results, and a simple application system that can be taught to your entire team. Don’t leave a good floor to chance, use the scientific approach. Use Scientific Concrete Polishing.
