Making vinyl floor stripping history
24 July 2013
Cleaning and protecting vinyl flooring has just become faster and more affordable with the launch of 3M Scotchgard Resilient Floor Protector. It is quicker to apply than traditional acrylic floor coatings; and doesn't require stripping, reducing labour costs.
'Maintaining vinyl floors with acrylic protectors is incredibly labour intensive,' explains James Gravestock, 3M general manager.
'It requires four or more coats to achieve protection and needs to be stripped at regular intervals.' Scotchgard Resilient Floor Protector uses multiple polymer technologies to produce a hard, even surface that is resistant to scratches, stains and scuff marks.
Two coats of the non-yellowing, low-odour formulation produce a clean, glossy surface that claims to be up to twice as resistant to abrasion as traditional floor finish when tested under lab conditions.
The floor protector dries more quickly too, reducing operational downtime. It's easy to spot repair, and can be removed by scrubbing with no harmful stripping chemicals. It's suitable for use on multiple substrates, including VCT, vinyl tile, luxury vinyl tile, linoleum and asphalt tile floors.
