When it comes to surface preparation machines, Substrate Technology has all you need. Everything from small jobs to large projects can be done with our variety of surface preparation equipment machines, including:

Using the right machine makes every surface prep job easier, safer, and more effective. We want you and your crew to have the perfect surface preparation machine for every job. 

Dust Collectors

Dust removal improves safety, cleanliness, and quality. Power tools, especially in surface prep, create lots of dust from surface grinding and polishing. Whatever the project, a smart contractor plans their dust collection to prolong the life of their tools and protect their workers. We offer several dust collectors suitable for any sized project.

Floor Grinding Machines

A floor grinder can stop you from having to replace a floor. You can level uneven surfaces, smooth over cracks, remove unwanted coatings and create a polishing effect. All these possibilities mean you can repair most issues with a surface. Floor grinding machines are versatile and efficient. 

If you are working on a small area, an electric floor grinder works well. The need for a power outlet means the range of movement can be limited. For indoor use, there is little need for ventilation when using. 

Propane powered floor grinders make quick work of larger areas. You just need to keep the tank filled up. Be aware of the need for ventilation though, as the fumes can be harmful. You will also need noise protection.


Scarifiers are like floor grinders but are for more heavy-duty tasks. They will quickly remove the top layer of a concrete surface with their cutting wheels. This means you can lay a new surface down quickly. If the concrete is very uneven, it is best to use a scarifier. They can also be used to add a non-slip texture to walkways, meaning less chance of accidents. Facilities showing traffic lines can use a scarifier to remove these as well.

Shot Blasters

The process with a shot blaster is how it sounds. They fire steel pellets into the surface. The relentless pressure of this chips away imperfections and will give the surface the desired effect. No matter the size of the job, there are models available. These range from small handheld models up to ride-on shot blasters for vast areas. 

Swing Machines

Some people call these Rotary Floor Machines. They can help restore the shine to any dull surface. They have powerful motors and a variety of pad options. If you attach the right pads, they will be much more effective than brushing and mopping. They can remove embedded dirt and buff away an assortment of scratches and other surface damage. 


A lot of debris will build up in surface preparation jobs. Use a vacuum specifically designed for concrete. This way you can remove it without jamming the machine. Concrete dust contains silica, which can cause fatal lung diseases. Sweeping will create more dust than it removes, so it is not the best option. Our concrete vacuums are designed with durability in mind. After all, we use them on construction sites and industrial environments. Our durable machines can suck up the worst and keep coming back for more.
