general context: building construction. Refers to a treatment for (horizontal) concrete structures that increases the suruface density and smoothness. A description from a German site reads, 'Durch das Flügelglätten wird die eigebrachte Rohbetondecke im Oberflächen- bereich bis zu 1 cm Tiefe hochverdichtet. Daraus resultiert, dass die Druck- und Abriebfestigkeit der  gesamten Fläche wesentlich erhöht wird...'
