With the right combination of machine size, timing and operator experience, a powerfloat finish is the right choice for a smooth surface. It’s usually used to achieve a greater level of flatness & surface regularity.

Hard wearing finish

Powerfloated concrete results in a hard wearing finished surface by densifying the top 2-3mm.

Up to FM1 tolerance

Our power float process allows us to achieve flatness tolerances of up to FM1 standard

SR3 classification

This tolerance is only achievable through powerfloating.

Decades of experience

It takes years of learning, training, and methodology.

Power Float Finish
Extra flatness & a hardwearing finish

Using a powerfloat concrete finish you can achieve a reasonable level of flatness. Even when you use a Laser Screed Lay you will most likely want to use a powerfloat to achieve an additional level of flatness. A Powerfloat machine sits on top of the concrete in a similar manner to a hovercraft with a series of blades underneath which rotate at a very high speed. The blades spin and polish out all imperfections to achieve a smooth and shiny finish. As a general rule, the more passes you have with a power float, the smoother your floor will be.

Powerfloat Finish
Powerfloats are used on almost every project

A Powerfloat finish is used where concrete is going to be the finished floor, or where a thin layer direct applied finish is to go on top:

  • Warehouse Floors
  • Under thin tiling
  • Under carpeting
  • Under thin screeds
  • As preparation to receive resin or paint.

Powerfloats are used on almost every project

The choice of Powerfloat type, size, number and experience levels of operators is critical to achieving the desired effect.

After Laying:

  1. Wait for the critical time when concrete has set enough to walk on but is not yet solid.
  2. Powerfloat the surface with circular ‘pans’ connected to the underside of the machine. This brings up a creamy paste
  3. Further passes with the ‘pans’ push down any aggregate and flattens the surface.
  4. Pans are removed and Powerfloats are driven on their blades which trowel the surface flatter & smoother with every pass.
  5. More and more passes of the blades in different directions give the desired finished effect.
