Rejuvenating JCPenney’s Floors to Polished Concrete Perfection

Retail stores receive a large amount of foot traffic, which inevitably means their concrete floors wear down and the quality of them diminishes over time, especially if not maintained properly. Such was the case at a JCPenney store in Madison, WI at the West Towne Mall. Thus, Hunter Advanced Concrete Polishing was tasked with rejuvenating the concrete floors to their former polished glory.

What They Did

First the Hunter ACP crew shaved the floor to rid it of the tile that was previously covering the surface. As evidenced in the slideshow, the concrete underneath was in really rough shape. After removing all the tile, epoxy was poured and spread, then sand was broadcast over top to rejection. The next day all the sand was swept off and RapidSet TRU was mixed with AmeriPolish integral color in a CS Unitec Hippo mixer and poured and spread using spiked shoes and a porcupine roller. The floor could be walked on after 4 hours, but it is ideal to wait until the next day before grinding and polishing. After polishing to at least an 800 grit, the floors were shiny enough to protect and seal (the final step). You can see the finished result at the end of the slideshow — it looks much better now!
