Our ECONOMY finish is specifically made for jobs that need a quick, easy, and economical polish. This would be best used on a relatively new slab because this finish does not grind down to the aggregate. The process starts at a transitional diamond, and works it way up to a 400 grit iShine resin (densified after 100 grit), then is finished with a low gloss sealer to give you a flat finish on the floor.

THE PROCESS

Transitional

Using the quick change TMAG resin adaptors, fasten the transitional tooling to the grinder. Grind in an “east to west” then “north to south” pattern, or until a uniform scratch pattern is achieved. Thoroughly inspect that scratches from previous step have been removed before moving on to the next step.

iShine 100

Squeegee or vacuum up dust residue from previous step, proceed to polish with iSHINE100 Grit resin (BLACK). Polish in an “east to west” then “north to south” pattern, or until a uniform scratch pattern is achieved. Thoroughly inspect that scratches from previous step have been removed before moving on to the next step.

Densifier

Squeegee or vacuum up dust residue from previous step. Ensure that the surface is clean and dry before completing the densification process. For a Sodium based densifier apply ArmorDefend Na. For a Lithium based densifier apply ArmorDefend Li. Refer to the chosen products data sheet for safety and application instructions.

iShine 200 – iShine 400

After the densification process is complete, proceed with the remaining resin steps. Polish with iSHINE  200 Grit resin (BLUE). Polish in an “east to west” then “north to south” pattern, or until a uniform scratch pattern is achieved. Thoroughly inspect that scratches from previous step have been removed before moving on to the next step. Squeegee or vacuum up dust residue from the previous step if required. Repeat this process for iSHINE 400 grit (RED).

Low Gloss Sealer

Squeegee or vacuum up dust residue from previous step. Ensure that the surface is clean and dry before completing the ArmorFinish: Stain and wear protection. Refer to the product data sheet for safety and application instructions.
