Urban — Medium Exposure Concrete Floor Finish

Urban is the most traditional diamond polished concrete finish combining cost effectiveness with an excellent random stone exposure. This finish is suitable for existing or newly-laid concrete in residential or commercial settings. 

It requires the removal of the 2-3mm of the concrete laitance to reveal the underlying aggregates. The floor is ground flat leaving a random mix of medium stone and fine aggregates that are then polished with resin diamonds.

Megafloor finish and sheen options can be selected for the desired performance and gloss level for the application.
