I have just had a concrete floor poured and power floated to what I wanted as a 'mirror finish' like car showrooms have - at a glance: http://www.google.co.uk/images?hl=e...tle&resnum=1&ved=0CD8QsAQwAA&biw=1841&bih=980

The floor is smooth but not reflective. It's still damp (finished pouring at 4.30pm yesterday and started polishing at 11.30pm, through to 5am this morning.

I haven't been back to see the room yet but not hedging my bets that it's like a mirror. Is there a sealer that now needs to be applied or can it be dry polished to the desired effect?

Hi - not sure if you are still on this forum, but I was just wondering what your polished concrete floor looks like now after several years.
