Diamond Grinding concrete and asphalt pavements. Including full lane and bump grinding to meet DOT/FAA regulations.
Diamond grinding is a concrete pavement restoration (CPR) technique that provides a smooth riding surface with the desirable friction characteristics on concrete pavements that have developed excessive roughness. Diamond grinding offers numerous advantages over other rehabilitation alternatives, including the following:
Costs substantially less than an overlay.
Enhances surface friction and safety of an old pavement surface.
Can be accomplished during off-peak hours with short lane closures and without encroaching into the adjacent lanes.
Grinding of one lane does not require grinding of the adjacent lane, which may have perfectly acceptable surface characteristics.
For concrete pavements in good structural condition, diamond grinding can be a highly effective and economical rehabilitation alternative. The history of continuous diamond grinding for pavement restoration dates back to 1965, to a 19-year-old section of the San Bernardino Freeway (I-10) in California that was diamond-ground to eliminate excessive faulting. Since then, diamond grinding has become a major element of CPR projects.
