Where can I use Polished Concrete? Any concrete slab more than 28 days old can be polished. However, results are somewhat dependent upon the condition of the slab.

If it is known in advance that the floor will be polished, the cement mix can be colored or seeded with additional aggregate and other additives to achieve a unique appearance. impervious to stains, acids, and salts.
