What if you could combine the automation of work provided by an auto scrubber with cutting edge concrete polishing chemistry? That's exactly what we did at Centry Concrete Care. The Centry TuffTrack concrete polishing system was designed and chemically engineered to use within mechanical auto-scrubbers to create a simple and dust-free operating experience. TuffTrack also offers a more durable finish than sealers and water-based coatings at 1/3 the cost of conventional methods. TuffTrack’s innovative chemistry is ideal for smooth troweled concrete or previously polished concrete and overlays.

Since TuffTrack is an automated process installation could not be easier. Just follow the steps below to create a beautiful, economic and environmentally friendly floor that will last for many years.
TuffTRACK was engineered for bare hard troweled concrete slabs. Verify the slab is free of curing agents and sealers before starting with a water drop test. Drip small amounts of water over various areas of the concrete. Sealer is likely present if the water beads up and the color of the concrete does not change. Follow manufacturer’s recommendations to remove all latent compounds and sealers chemically or mechanically. Centry TUFFTRACK was designed for CSP1 and CSP2 concrete.
STEP 1: CONCRETE SLAB CLEANER+
Sweep debris from the ﬂoor with dry mop. Fill scrubber tank with CENTRY CLEANER+ cleaning solution mixed at a ratio of 8oz /15 gal water. Apply cleaning solution at full flow and scrub slab with included 400 Grit RED ﬁber pads at full pressure and squeegee down. Travel at a slow walking pace in a north/south, east/west pattern. Go over the application area at least twice to thoroughly clean the slab. Note: For projects less than 500 sq. ft., pail mix cleaning solution (1oz: 4 gallons water) and pour onto slab, spreading with a flat squeegee and let dwell on surface for 15 mins before scrubbing with water only.
STEP 2: WATER RINSE WITH SCRUBBER
Empty scrubber tanks, rinse and ﬁll with clean water. Travel at a medium walking pace in a north/south, east/west pattern with rinse water at full flow. Scrub with 400 Grit RED ﬁber pads at full down pressure and squeegee down. Allow to slab to dry.
STEP 3: RESTORE CONCRETE DENSIFIER Empty Auto Scrubber tanks and mix CENTRY RESTORE densifier, adding one part Restore to 3 parts water. Coverage rate is 375 sq. ft./ gal. Apply Restore solution at full ﬂow scrubbing with 400 Grit RED fiber pads at full down pressure and squeegee up. Scrub in a north/south, east/west pattern. Once completed, turn off the flow setting and continue scrubbing RESTORE solution to work it in for 45 minutes. Allow the surface to dry at least two hours after scrubbing. Note: For projects less than 1500 sq. ft., pail mix hardener solution and pour onto slab, spreading with a flat squeegee before scrubbing.
STEP 4: WATER RINSE WITH SCRUBBER
Empty scrubber tanks, rinse and fill with clean water. Travel at a medium walking pace in a north/south, east/west pattern with rinse water at full flow. Scrub with 800 Grit WHITE diamond pads at full down pressure and squeegee down. Edges and corners should be cleaned with a mop and wet-vac to remove hardener residue. Allow ﬂoor to dry completely.
STEP 5: BURNISH
Burnish the entire floor with a quality high speed heat style burnishing pad.
STEP 6: (ISG) INTEGRATED STAIN GUARD
Mix one part CENTRY (ISG) with two parts water into a pump sprayer. Traveling across the slab in an “east to west” direction, mist ITC solution without puddling at a minimum rate of 1,000 sqft per gallon. Work ISG across the sprayed area with a microfiber pad dampened with the ISG product in a north/south motion first before using a figure 8 pattern to spread the product evenly. Allow 2 to 4 hours dry time before burnishing with a high speed burnisher mounted with a burnishing heat pad. Burnish in a north/south, east/west pattern. Dry mop floor and apply a second coat of ISG. Burnish again after drying within 4 hours. Note*A 3rd coat maybe required for high gloss (1,500 finish)
