New twist on floor care
23 January 2013
Twister pads are an environmentally friendly floor cleaning system that is being distributed globally by the Nilfisk group in co-operation with HTC Sweden. The Twister pads are impregnated with microscopic diamonds an
The Twister pads are impregnated with microscopic diamonds and mechanically treat and maintain floors using just water. No cleaning agents, chemicals or periodic maintenance is required. A range of pads is now available to suit all Nilfisk scrubber dryers. The density and hardness of the diamond content relate to the level of abrasion and gloss finish. Suitable floors include Terrazzo, marble, limestone, ceramic, polished concrete, epoxy and vinyl.
In one example, the Twister pads have been used to treat a 15 year old tennis court with marked deterioration.
Severe marks had been left by heavy use of chemicals and a replacement was planned with an expected spend of £120,000.
A Nilfisk BR755 Ecoflex Scrubber Dryer was used with 14" yellow and green Twister pads. After only four passes and no application of chemical the surface was left shiny and pristine, as can be seen in the before and after photos above.
