For nearly 50 years, scarifying and shot blasting machines have looked and functioned the same. For those who still believe that these methods are the smartest way of machining a floor, it's time to think again. The development of HTC's machines and tools means that there is no longer any reason at all for continuing to use old-fashioned methods and equipment.
+ Functions on all surfaces
+ Many areas of use
+ A flat surface can always be achieved
+ Close to edges
+ Low noise level and little dust
Scarifying / Shot blasting
- Impossible to get a flat surface. Grinding or
self-levelling compound is required afterwards
- Leaves lines that can often be seen under the
- Extra covering material is required
- Leaves 70-90 mm from the wall
- Lots of dust, vibrations and noise
- Few areas of use
The grinding process which can remove sealants, coatings, tyre marks and surface imperfections. The process uses a series of metal-bonded diamond grit tools which perform the initial floor grinding. The quality and hardness of the existing floor dictates the number of steps or passes needed to ensure a good base. An enclosed grinding head along with continual intensive vacuuming keep dust levels at a minimum.
