Scarifying - Method uses metal or carbide disks that rotate at high speeds. Levels uneven floors and edges of concrete. Removes adhesives and thick film coatings.
Grinding/Sanding - Prepares, cleans and abrades existing coatings for recoat and helps smooth aggregate floors. This technique works for coatings that were recently applied and need to be touched up with an additional coating.
