What Is Concrete Grinding Scarifying?

Scarifiers cut or scar the surface of concrete with the use of cutting tools that rotate around a drum. The cutters chip away at the concrete leaving rough surface profiles for various purposes. Cutting depths are adjustable on most machines, with some models achieving up to 1/4 inch of material removal in just one pass. Scarifiers remove concrete faster and more aggressively than grinders due to the pummeling action of the cutting wheels that rotate at very high speeds. 

A concrete scarifier is a machine that uses spinning blades, attached to a rotating drum, to chip away at the top layer of a concrete surface. Scarifiers carve distinct lines in the concrete, making the surfaces especially useful for non-slip purposes. These machines are great for removing coatings and creating a level space, free of bumps and dips. 

 

Concrete grinders create shallow grooves in the concrete, enhancing its non-slip properties, but they’re not quite as directional as a scarifier’s grooves. Concrete grinders are machines that spin diamond-tipped discs across the concrete, grinding away the top layer and leaving an even, textured surface. 

Applications for Concrete Grinding Scarifying

  • Grooving walkways and sidewalks to make them slip-resistant 
  • Leveling misaligned concrete joints and uneven surfaces.
  • Removing thick epoxy, carpet clue, or coatings
  • Carving deep grooves for traction
  • Removing thicker layers of concrete for repair.
  • Scarifiers dig fairly deep into the concrete, scraping away up to ¼ of an inch per pass. This means they’re especially useful for outdoor construction projects such as:
    • Bridge construction and repair
    • Road construction and repair
    • Parking garage flooring
    • Sidewalks and driveways
