Thick Floor Maintenance Pads - 18" Round
Floor Maintenance Pads are made from a variety of abrasive materials, ranging from synthetic to aluminum oxide to silicon carbide.
Some of the buffing pads use very fine soft materials to increase the friction on the surface, providing very mild abrasion.
White pads have no abrasive. They rely on fine fibers on the surface to generate heat to burnish the finish.
