Concrete Grind, Densify and Polish
Apply lithium based densifier after initial grind.
Use diamond polishing pads in ascending order of smoothness
Water polishers, popular for piece work, counter tops, areas under 1000 sq ft.

Smoother and smoother pads bring start to impart a sheen,
Near the end slab begins to reflect light.
Finished product reveals the beauty under the cream
