What is the difference between grind and seal and machine polished concrete?

The grind and seal process is very similar to how wooden floor boards are finished. i.e. grind/sand to a smooth finish and then paint with a sealer. Where a timber floor is sanded and then sealed, a concrete floor is ground smooth with specialist grinding machinery.

A CCC Polished Concrete machine finish is a much more complex procedure involving up to 15 stages. The final finish is more like a granite bench top.
