The next operation was using a hilt chipping hammer to remove all the concrete between the scores down ¾ of an inch so that the Cerlon can be poured at least ¾ of an inch thick. Only a ½” of Cerlon is needed to make the area impervious to the salt, but we figure that we go to ¾ of an inch to make sure the salt will not affect our repair. Once this is done and the spoilage is removed the concrete has to be cleaned and remove as much of the dust as possible. Cerlon will chemically bond with the concrete so you do not need to put any product as a bonding agent as you do with concrete.
However dont believe that this is your lone alternative in decorative concrete. You could also decide to shine your cement with grinders that contain grits and diamond pads. Most concrete floor will tolerate a grit of 800. At least one technique is to add Sodium Silicate or Lithium Silicate to the cement while it solidifies which will boost the capability to add gloss and grit with the polished off cement. Immediately following numerous stages with the grinders you should have a glassy and smooth finish to the cement. Dye coloring might be added throughout the polishing stage which will make for a very decorative cement finish.
