Preparation with a Topfloor Oscillating Orbital Floor Cleaner…


The Topfloor Oscillating Floor Cleaning method is ideal for preparing surfaces!
Examples include sanding/roughening a coated floor and removing coatings or glue residue. The machines are also often used to prepare PVC floors or remove an old PU finish so that a new finish can be applied. For this, we use bonded diamond pads, aluminum oxide pads, open-structure pads and sanding paper. For preparation work, the choice of weight is often decisive for the speed and quality of the work. A higher pressure often gives a better result.

Since preparation work is often carried out dry, we recommend using the Dust Control Vacuum with the Splash & Dust Guard.
