Global product launch from KGS
Abrasives specialist KGS, which has some 10,000 customers in more than 70 countries, has announced the global launch of its new KGS Flexis pads with Ferrzon.
The Swiss manufacturer says that its KGS Flexis pads are the only pads in the world to contain Ferrzon, which in turn is thought to be the only substance that can scratch a diamond - and that because of its structural properties, Ferrzon technology is superior to diamond when used on steel and other very hard materials, as well as being more versatile and efficient than diamond for floor maintenance, grinding and polishing.
To support the Ferrzon technology, the Flexis pads have been manufactured in a more open weave and stiffer format than some alternative products, which improves self cleaning and offers longer pad life and durability. The pads offer exceptional performance and can be used wet or dry... If used wet they only require water, doing away with the need for chemicals.
Four grits are available:
* Coarse - for surface renovation
* Medium - for deep cleaning
* Fine - for polishing & cleaning
* Very Fine - for ultimate polishing
The chart shows the results of a direct comparison between KGS Flexis and two key competitors' products.
The manufacturer says there were substantial gloss level improvements on white marble when KGS Flexis with Ferrzon were used on it, when compared with the competitors' products that were of the traditional diamond type. KGS Flexis pads with Ferrzon achieved similar results on both terrazzo and red marbles.
