New 3M Melamine Floor Pads deep clean and restore up to 5 x more floor
Cleaning and maintaining stone, marble, concrete and other porous floor surfaces presents a particular challenge to facilities managers and contract cleaners; which is why 3M has launched a new, high-performance Melamine Floor Pad tailormade for the job.
Specially designed for daily, deep and spot cleaning of ceramic, polished concrete, terracotta, VCT and other modern micro-porous floors, 3M Melamine Floor Pads are ideal for use on large surface areas such as shopping centres, warehouses and swimming pools. Not only do they make light work of ingrained dirt and unsightly scuff marks - they go on working for up to five times longer than other melamine pads, resulting in significant cost savings.
"The true cost of floor care is not just what you pay for the materials, but what they can do for you in terms of increased performance and productivity," explains Richard Jones, 3M Market Manager for Floor & Surface Care. "3M Melamine Floor Pads clean deeper than other melamine pads currently on the market and have been shown to cover up to 5 times more floor in laboratory tests."
3M Melamine Floor Pads are formulated from high-strength melamine foam, bound with adhesive to dramatically improve their abrasive strength and durability. The open cell structure penetrates deeply into micro-porous floor surfaces, absorbing dirt and water and erasing unsightly marks without damaging floor protection.
Suitable for use with single-disc cleaning machines and scrubber driers, the pads will clean most dirt and marks with water alone, and for more stubborn marks, with a mild detergent.bFlexible and easy to use, they are available in a variety of sizes to fit all standard pad holders.
