Drafting an Understanding of Polished Concrete is a one hour program that allows the attendee to earn one hour of credit from the American Institute of Architects. With over 100,000,000 square feet of polished concrete floors in the United States alone, Advanced Floor Products, Inc. is pleased to present a program that is intended to assist the design professional to comprehensively understand the benefits in specifying polished concrete floors. The process of polishing, dyeing, and hardening existing and new concrete floors will be discussed, as well as ways to convert old cementitious terrazo floors to the benefits of polished floor technology.

Benefits of polished concrete include:
Low initial cost
Low cost to maintain floors
Beautiful dyed or natural concrete floors
Extreme Wear resistance
Green friendly (up to 5 Leed Credits)
Safe floors that meet ADA and Osha slip standards
Floors breathe so moisture problems are reduced
No topical coatings, sealers or waxes to blister, peel, or maintain
