Floor polishes

Floor polish is a temporary coating applied over a floor to protect it against moisture, the abuse of traffic and to enhance its appearance and longevity

Wash and wax

Wash and wax are ready-to-use products with very low solid content. The function is the cleaning, maintenance, and restoration of a polish. Some of our concentrates, once diluted, can be used as “Wash and wax” products.

Sealers

A sealer is used to fill the pores of very porous substrates. Additionally, it will provide an ideal adhering basis for a durable topcoat.

Carpet cleaners

Carpet cleaners are adapted to the cleaning process (wet foam shampoos, spray extraction, or dry powder cleaning). The dry residue of the polymeric phase contained in our carpet cleaners binds the dirt, which does not stick anymore to the carpet fibers and is so easily vacuumed whilst giving good resistance to re-soiling.
