Grinding is the first step in Grinding and Polishing and Grinding and Honing processes. Proper grinding removes damaged or deformed surface material, while limiting the amount of additional surface deformation. The goal is a plane surface with minimal damage that can easily be removed during polishing in the shortest possible time.
Grinding removes material using fixed abrasive particles that produce chips of the specimen material. The process of making chips with a sharp abrasive grain produces the lowest amount of deformation in the specimen, while providing the highest removal rate. Grinding can be divided into 2 processes.
This is normally the first step in the grinding process. Plane grinding ensures that the surfaces of all specimens are similar, despite their initial condition and their previous treatment.
Fine grinding produces a surface with little deformation that can easily be removed during polishing. This is done on hard composite disks with diamond grains. With these disks, a very plane specimen surface is obtained. The use of a diamond abrasive on the fine grinding disks guarantees a uniform removal of material from hard, as well as soft, phases. There is no smearing of soft phases or chipping of brittle phases, and the specimens will maintain a perfect planeness.
Like grinding, polishing is used to remove the damage remaining from the previous steps. This is achieved with steps of successively finer abrasive particles. Polishing can be divided into 2 processes.
Diamonds are used as an abrasive to accomplish the fastest material removal and the best possible planeness. No other available abrasive can produce similar results. Because of its hardness, diamonds cut extremely well through all materials and phases.
Certain materials, especially those that are soft and ductile, require a final polish, using oxide polishing to obtain the best quality. The combination of chemical activity and fine, gentle abrasion produces scratch-free and deformation-free specimens.

Marble and Stone Benchtop Honing and Polishing
No matter how careful you are, benchtops tend to get scratched over time whether it’s in your home kitchen or in your commercial restaurant/bar. Our expert technicians can bring them back to life. With our unique stone grinding and polishing process, we can re-store the high gloss or honed finish to your kitchen benchtop, bathroom vanity or furniture.
At Tile Solution Australia, we use the latest diamond abrasive technology to revive your marble or other stone surfaces. This process removes dull spots, scratches, etching, ring marks, stains and burn marks. We can restore the natural beauty of your marble and stone surfaces and bring elegance back to the room.
Concrete polishing is a relatively new flooring option that is environmentally sustainable, using currently present concrete to keep it Eco-friendly. Grinding and polishing is the process of progressively grinding concrete and then smoothing it to a hard reflective finish. This flooring option offers a large amount of versatility, as concrete of any age can be polished, which not only creates an aesthetically pleasing surface, but makes it much more durable and low-maintenance.
Polished concrete has been a flooring alternative in large retail, commercial and industrial facilities for years. Today with the advances in technology and equipment it is equally as effective for smaller facilities, including residential applications.
In recent years decorative concrete has caught the eye of architects, top designers, and decorators. This type of flooring is a highly desirable option for the garage, kitchen, basement, or the whole home in private residences. Decorative concrete is the crossroads of classic and contemporary design, and offers the opportunity for truly unique and astonishing floors.
Polished Concrete floors offer numerous benefits making it an ideal choice for most homes or business areas with existing concrete.
- Abrasion resistance.
- Compressive strength.
- Environmental friendliness.
- Slip resistance.
- Allergy resistance.
- Cost effectiveness.
- Low maintenance.
- Customizable colour and design.
- Durability & longevity.
- A naturally beautiful appearance.
