Flooring can be cleaned with minimal time, effort and chemical use.
There have been many years of experience using them to clean mineral floor coverings, porcelain stoneware tiles, natural stone, artificial stone and structured surfaces.
Applications for other types of flooring are possible. Suitability should however be checked with the flooring on site.
The haid-tec® MelaminPlusPads are made from refined melamine foam.
Melamine foam can achieve an outstanding mechanical cleaning performance on mineral floor coverings.
Pure melamine tears easily. Refined melamine foam, however, is more tear-proof. This leads to longer lifetimes – on polished surfaces for example up to ten hours instead of one hour with pure melamine pads.
With larger areas, depending on the flooring and other factors, around 500 to 1,000 sqm per hour can be taken as a starting point.
The company haid-tec® from Rottenacker, Germany was the first to implement these newly developed pads as a cleaning solution for porcelain stoneware. Here the challenge was to remove a layer of grey fog, that had formed on the surface of the porcelain stoneware flooring, particularly as a result of using inappropriate cleaning products.
Basic cleaning: Use of e.g. 16-inch MelaminPlusPad on a single-disc machine.
Daily cleaning: regular use in daily cleaning, equipping the scrubber-drier machines with the corresponding MelaminPlusPads.
As a general rule, all current state-of-the-art scrubber-drier machines.
The haid-tec® MelaminPlusPad is simply mounted onto the pad holder of the scrubber-drier machine. The floor is then travelled over as normal with the machine.
The more slowly and frequently the floor is covered by the cleaning machine, and the higher its contact pressure, the better the cleaning performance.
The optimally appropriate ones are specially developed haid-tec® daily cleaners. These are non-film-forming. Through the combined use of haid-tec® daily cleaners and haid-tec® MelaminPlusPads, cleaning performance is optimised.
Once the haid-tec® MelaminPlusPad is worn out, the machine should either be equipped with a further haid-tec® MelaminPlusPads or a standard pad (e.g. microfibre polypad), which are normally used for cleaning.
Edges can be cleaned manually with the haid-tec® hand pad attached to a handle mount.
haid-tec® MelaminPlusPads have been used successfully for years on floor coverings by market leaders in industry, trade and business.
haid-tec® MelaminPlusPads are available for all established scrubber-drier machines:
with diameter 280 mm – 11 inch/ 12.5 inch/ 13 inch/ 14 inch/ 16 inch/ 18 inch up to 508 mm – 20 inch, 6 pads per box. Plus haid-tec® hand pads 115 x 250 mm, 15 pads per box.
