Recently concrete polishing has become increasingly popular in Auckland due to its many advantages, including durability, low maintenance, and aesthetic appeal. The process of creating polished concrete involves grinding, treating, and polishing the surface to achieve a smooth, refined, and sometimes glossy finish. This makes it an excellent flooring option for both residential and commercial spaces.

Equipment and Tools You’ll Learn

The concrete grinder is one of the most crucial tools for polishing concrete. These machines are equipped with appropriate tooling and designed to remove the top layer of concrete, exposing the aggregate. This process provides the perfect base for creating a smooth and polished surface. 

Concrete grinders are essential in achieving a high-quality finish on concrete floors. These machines use diamond-impregnated pads or discs to progressively smooth and polish the concrete surface. 

To achieve the best results, it’s essential to use the appropriate diamond tools throughout the MPC  process. These tools include diamond grinding segments, cup wheels, and polishing pads that come in various grit levels. Using the correct grit progression ensures a consistent finish and reduces the risk of scratches or uneven surfaces on the polished concrete floor.

Finishing Techniques and Processes You’ll Learn

In our concrete polishing training Auckland courses sessions  we will provide you with comprehensive knowledge on various finishing techniques and processes to achieve a flawless polished surface. These include:

Creating a flat floor

Creating a flat floor is the foundation of our product, and it is crucial to ensure that the floor is level before proceeding with the MPC process. We teach you how to test, plan, and execute operations to make sure that you achieve a level surface.


Grouting is an essential process during concrete floor polishing as it fills in any pinholes, small voids, or cracks in the surface. This step ensures a smooth and level surface for further polishing and contributes significantly to the floor’s lifespan.


Transition is the stages between grinding and polishing. The floor is treated with densifier to initiate chemical reactions within the concrete which essentially prepares the concrete to be polished.


Honing is an essential step in the polishing process, involving the switch from metal bond diamonds to resin bond diamonds to remove the rough surface and produce a smooth finish which can then be polished. The honing stages continue to use densifier to “tighten” the floor preparing the concrete for higher stages of polishing.


The polishing stages involve a progression with finer and finer grit resin bond diamonds. These stages refine the scratches and may continue to use densifier to make the floor glassier. The floor is then polished to the desired level of gloss, ranging from muted low gloss reflectivity to a high-gloss, highly reflective finish. The polishing process increases the floor’s durability, resistance to stains and spills, and enhances its overall aesthetic appeal.


An impregnating sealer is used for sealing, which does not sit on the top of the surface, preventing it from peeling, flaking, or wearing down over time. This sealer ensures that the finish is left fully refined and “closed off,” with increased resistance to spills, stains, and wear.

Concrete polishing training in Auckland equips professionals with the skills and know-how required to achieve excellent results through all these steps. Understanding and perfecting these techniques ensures a polished concrete surface that is not only visually appealing but also suitable for long-term use.

The Rock Up point of difference is the focus.

Rock Up Group focuses on the operator and the process chosen by the operator. 

Rock Up Group is an independent company and works with the concrete polishers high-performance tooling and machinery of choice. 

Rock Up Group aims to empower operators to be able to employ the most efficient  process, including tooling and technique combinations, to achieve the required outcome with the concrete at hand.

Rock Up Group does not “sell a system” but instead upskills the operator to understand the substrate they’re working with while getting comfortable with the capability of their chosen equipment.
