There are three basic exposure levels of aggregate in Bomanite Custom Polishing systems.

Paste Polishing

Paste polished architectural concrete is concrete that has been very lightly ground with only fine sand exposure and some finishing marks present upon completion.

Sand Polishing

Sand polished includes average sized sands with occasional partial exposure of larger aggregate. This is considered the standard exposure level when polishing concrete due to the removal of some deficiencies coupled with the final appearance.

Stone Polishing

Stone polished is a deep grind look similar to a coarse terrazzo floor with a cross-section of the top sized aggregates visible at the concrete surface.
