Scanmaskin Presents the World Series Floor System – Concrete Polishing Made Easy
When it comes to polishing a floor, there are two important things to remember. These are to set the customers’ expectations and start with the end result. But many contractors don’t know what polished concrete is, and the steps to create the expected end result.
Scanmaskin created a simple step-by-step guide to facilitate the process of polishing a concrete floor via its World Series System, a premium selection of products focused on quality, service and reliability. Called, “How to Get a World Series Floor,” the guide combines the results of Scanmaskin’s extensive testing, together with a complete range and explanation of the tooling need for the job. The easy step-by-step guide helps contractors achieve the ultimate finish every time. Following on 2018’s release of the Scanmaskin 32 and Scanmaskin
28 machines, the company has worked with its customers to create a complete World Series tooling system spanning metals, ceramics, and resins. The focus of the World Series Metal tools has been to achieve maximum productivity while providing good longevity. The W-shaped segments increase the airflow around the tool, which helps prevent
overheating and glazing. This ensures better longevity and higher productivity for the tool. The World Series metal tools are available in four different bonds for soft, regular, hard, and super-hard floors. There are both single and double tools and all are available in in four different grits: 16/20, 30/40, 60/80, and 140/150.
The World Series ceramic tools are specifically designed to transition from a metal diamond to a resin polishing tool. The unique low - profile design and high crystal density allow these tools to contour to the surface while achieving maximum refinement at the same time. The World Series ceramics can also be used as the first step for a cream or salt/pepper finish, eliminating the need for a metal tool. Soft and Medium bonds are available for different concrete hardness, and all feature very high diamond concentrations. Five grits are available: 50, 80, 100, 200, and 400. The World Series resins are designed to achieve the final mechanical refinement on the surface, usingdiamond powders bonded in a resin matrix. The World Series resins are engineered to transition from a honed surface to a highly polished surface with minimal steps. Seven grits are available: 50, 100, 200, 400, 800, 1500, and 3000.
