The Refresher Multifunction 4-Step Processs:
STEP 1: Stripping/Deep Scrubbing Strip or deep scrub the floor to remove VCT floor finish, sealer or deeply ground-in soils. Many polished concrete, terrazzo and marble floors have been coated with VCT floor finish or sealer, reducing their luster and making them higher maintenance.
STEP 2: Honing Hone the floor to remove scratches or sealers using the quick-change Velcro® driver with hybrid diamonds. These diamonds will cut more deeply than resins, but not as deeply as metal diamonds, allowing the scratches or sealers to be removed. NOTE: Do not use hybrids on marble floors.
STEP 3: Polishing Polish the floor using the Velcro® drivers with resin puck diamonds or the Mighty-Lok® drive with diamond pads.
STEP 4: Burnishing Apply guard and burnish the floor using the Mighty-Lok® head to accept burnishing pads or diamond impregnated pads. Burnish until the floor heats to 90F / 32C.
