Grinding is typically used to level uneven pavement and to roughen surfaces for skid resistance. It has low dust levels, removes epoxies and urethanes but is slower than other methods.


Advantages to grinding:

  • Provides a smooth surface that is often as good or better than a new pavement
  • Enhances surface texture and friction and there is no evidence of deleterious effects
  • These improvements reduce the potential for small-vehicle hydroplaning
  • Does not significantly affect fatigue life of a pavement
  • Does not affect material durability unless the coarse aggregate is a soft stone subject to polishing
  • May be applied only where is needed, however, spot grinding is generally not usually recommended
  • Restoring smoothness to faulted or curled concrete highways Improve skid resistance
  • Level doorway entrances
  • Smooth driveway approaches
