Cleaning

Whose idea was it to use the special melamine foam as a cleaning pad?

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.

Which factors is the cleaning performance dependent upon?

The more slowly and frequently the floor is covered by the cleaning machine, and the higher its contact pressure, the better the cleaning performance.

How are MelaminPlusPads mounted onto 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.

Are references available for the haid-tec MelaminPlusPad®?

haid-tec MelaminPlusPads have been used successfully for years on floor coverings by market leaders in industry, trade and business.

What is the difference between standard (MPP) and basic (MPP basic) MelaminPlusPads?

Basic pads were developed for use with single-disc machines, and therefore, without an opening in the foam.

Standard pads are pads for scrubber-driers, and therefore, have an opening in the foam for mounting in the pad holder with centerlock. In daily maintenance cleaning, the motor head of the machine is moved up and down many times. Therefore, we recommend using pad holders with centerlock, which ensure proper hold of the pad.

Why do melamine pads come in different colors?

Due to the manufacturing process, the color or share of gray and white melamine foam may vary. However, we use exclusively BASF foam, so there is no difference in cleaning performance.
