Intermountain Concrete Polishing created a walkway and interior space to match the colors of the Florida Keys by using a the Bomanite Patene Artectura System in a combination of Bomanite Blue Concrete Dye and Bomanite Chemical Stains in Auburn and Pine. To contrast the dramatic color of the walkways that run through the Bass Pro Shop retail area, the remaining areas of the concrete base floor used the Bomanite VitraFlor System and were polished at 800 grit and sealed with Bomanite StainGuard providing a sleek finished look.
Bomanite defines polished concrete as having sand exposure in the concrete surface at a minimum, the concrete is treated twice with chemically hardening compounds (once to harden the weaker paste surrounding the aggregates and once to finish hardening while improving stain resistance) and polished in successive steps in a manner similar to a granite countertop or floor. The process uses successively finer diamonds to produce a tight, durable finish that maximizes the strongest part of concrete – the aggregates. The Bomanite process is much closer to highly durable Terrazzo than to chemically hardened cement paste. Capitalizing on the hard aggregate is what makes a Bomanite polished floor superior to other systems both in retention of gloss and durability
