How does the Scotch-Brite™ Surface Preparation Pads SPP differ from traditional sandpaper?
The Surface Preparation Pads are made with non-woven nylon fibers instead of abrasive minerals. This means they're more flexible and can conform to irregular surfaces better than stiff sandpaper.
What kind of surfaces can I use the brown SPP on?
The brown pads are ideal for cleaning and prepping metal surfaces before painting or coating, as well as removing rust and oxidation. They're also great for heavy duty cleaning tasks, like stripping floors.
Are these pads reusable or disposable?
While technically you could reuse them if they're still in good condition after use, we generally recommend disposing them once they become too loaded with dirt or debris.
Can I cut these pads down to a smaller size?
Yes! The 117 mm x 254 mm size is just one option - we offer a variety of sizes to fit your specific needs. You can even cut them down further if necessary.
. Will using this pad produce any toxic fumes?
. No, our Scotch-Brite™ Surface Preparation Pads do not pose any risks due to hazardous fiumes released duing usages since it's essentially coated nylon material and doesn't contain any chemicals that might evaporate when exposed in high temperature conditions while doing your task at hand.
Environmentally Preferable Floor Pads
These floor pads are designed to be environmentally friendly and require only neutral cleaner or water to effectively deep scrub and remove most floor finishes. This leaves a clean surface that is ready for refinishing. The cleaning process is easy and safe, as there is no slippery residue from strippers, no contact with skin and clothing, and no need for stripper clean up. This product helps enhance safety and productivity.
The term "Environmentally Preferable Products" is defined in the Instructions for Implementing Executive Order 13423, titled “Strengthening Federal Environmental, Energy, and Transportation Management”. These products or services have a lesser or reduced effect on human health and the environment when compared with competing products or services that serve the same purpose. This comparison may consider raw materials acquisition, product manufacturing, packaging, distribution, reuse, operation, maintenance, or disposal of the product or service.
