Polished-Concrete Institute Issues Spec

Monday, September 21, 2009

Comment | More

The Technical Institute for Polished Concrete issued a second version of a concrete-polishing specification, reported to be based on “a real-world job site perspective.” The institute a year ago had issued an initial version of the specification, which focuses on obtaining consistent results from the mechanical polishing process.

The institute said the specification takes into consideration all of the controllable variables associated with processing concrete to a polished finish. It is written in a format that allows a manufacturer or specifier to specify equipment and supplies while maintaining a solid foundation for installation, the organization said.

The Technical Institute for Polished Concrete, based in Stevensville, MD, says it is an organization designed for polishing contractors by polishing contractors.  The institute is dedicated to promoting mechanical ground, honed, and polished concrete through research, standards development, accreditation, and education, and offers resources to help answer questions for contractors, architects, interior designers, owners and polishing contractors. The institute offers continuing education for professional organizations and certification classes designed to educate professional installers.

More information is available by email at info@polishinginstitute.org or, by phone at 410/643-4074. The organization’s website is located at www.polishinginstitute.org.
