How To Choose The Right Floor Pads?
Low Speed Floor Pads (For Buffer Speeds 175-300 RPM)
Strip Pads are for removing all finish, sealer and contaminants from the floor surface.
Scrub Pads are for heavy duty scrubbing prior to recoating, heavy duty cleaning or foam scrubbing.
Polish Pads are designed to "polish" already waxed floors to a higher gloss. While you can polish with standard 175 rpm low speed buffers, you will achieve a higher gloss and best results with high speed 1000 to 2000 rpm floor buffers.
High Speed Floor Pads (For Buffer Speeds 1000-3000 RPM)
Burnish Pads are designed to "burnish" already waxed floors to the highest gloss. The extra friction generated by higher RPM machines (1000-3000 RPM) produces the "wet look" many desire for their floors.
