Several factors will affect the final appearance when polishing concrete:
  • The stone quality and color.
  • The color of the cement (the cement can be pigmented).
  • The concrete quality.
  • Grinding depth: With different grit sizes and bonding matrix in the diamond segments you can somewhat control how deep you grind into the concrete surface. The grinding depth will affect how much of the stones that are exposed and also in turn the aesthetical appearance of the polished surface.
