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.

Which types of cleaning can be carried out with the haid-tec MelaminPlusPad®?

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.

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.

What makes the OE (MPP OE) pad unique?

The OE pad is only 15 mm thick to allow the high-frequency vibrations from the machine’s vibrating plate to be transferred directly to the floor. The pad can only remove dirt when the vibrations are transferred to the floor.

The vibrations must not “escape” via the back or the foam of the pad – otherwise the pad will remain motionless and have no impact on the floor.

Introduced at CMS Berlin 2019, our innovative MPP OE is composed of premium composite foam made from melamine resin with a firmly-attached Velcro back that is ideal for transferring the machine’s high-frequency vibrations. After use, the Velcro back comes off easily without leaving fibers on the Velcro hooks of the vibrating plate.

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.
