Perfect your concrete countertop installations with concrete finishing tools and supplies from Concrete Countertop Solutions. Their full line of concrete countertop products includes concrete mixes, stains and edge forms; as well as finishing tools like magnesium and wooden floats.
Magnesium floats are a light float and the most popular choice among professionals. Magnesium smooths the surface of fresh concrete and opens the pores for proper evaporation without pulling the surface.
Wood floats create a rougher surface profile and are also useful for applying shake-on color hardeners, which need to be worked into the top surface of the slab.
Other concrete countertop tools that are a must when pouring countertops are:
Diamond Polishing pads: From course to fine, these polishing pads are ideal to add a shine or any level of gloss to a hardened and cured concrete surface. Starting with a rough grit and slowly progressing to finer and finer grits will create a smoother and smoother surface.
Wet angle grinding polisher: This concrete countertop tool is the power that drives the diamond polishing pads. It is specially designed to be used with wet polishing and comes equipped with a water flow valve and grounding for safety.
Steel Trowel: If polishing concrete during the setting phase is your desire, than the concrete countertop tool for the job is a Steel trowel. This trowel can bring the moisture to the surface and allow you to polish out the curing concrete to provide a hard troweled smooth finish.
