***IMPORTANT NOTICE***

Due to the recent spread of the COVID-19 virus we are experiencing an unprecedented demand for our main stock lines, such as disinfectants, paper disposables and protective workwear. Our suppliers are also restricted on production for these items and have therefore increased lead times.

As a result, products which state "Next Day Delivery" can no longer be guaranteed for next day delivery. We are processing all orders as quickly as possible but please be aware that we are working at approx. 3-5 days for delivery on all orders.

Many thanks for your patience and understanding.

How To Clean Thermo-Plastic, PVC, PVC Asbestos & Rubber

Seals

1) Only sealed if badly deteriorated

2) Use water-based acrylic seals

3) Do not use solvent based seals. They will damage floor and are difficult to remove

4) Allow 28 days for adhesive to dry if floors are new

5) Surface dressing of new floors removed by scrubbing

6) Scrub with neutral or mildly alkaline detergent, rinse and dry


Polish

1) Used if there is a particular requirement to protect floor

2) Use water-based polishes if required

3) Scrub with neutral or alkaline detergent, rinse, neutralize and dry


Maintenance

1) Use systems 2 and 3 on sheet and tiles

2) System 7 may be used on welded sheets

3) Systems 2 and 7 would preferably not be used on rubber floors

4) Systems involving the use of polishes determined by prevailing conditions and requirements

5) Thermoplastic and PVC floors renovated by deep scrubbing

6) Rubber may be renovated by abrading with a fine abrasive disc (120) and finishing with a fine abrasive pad

7) Water-based seals removed by scrubbing with alkaline stripper

8) If solvent-based seals have been used it is preferable to recoat and repair rather than attempt to remove by abrasion


Precautions

1) Do not use water on tiles until 28 days after laying

2) Avoid regular use of strong alkali

3) Do not use any product that includes organic solvents

4) The use of pine oil based buffable gels can cause long-term deterioration

5) Rubber is prone to surface oxidation and requires a method of maintenance which leaves a protective film
