Chemical Free Floorcare with Twister
Cleaning teams can make their floorcare operations more sustainable by adopting the revolutionary diamond-impregnated Twister pads from Diversey. Used with one of Diversey’s advanced TASKI swingo scrubber driers or rotary-disc machines these innovative pads deliver excellent results with water alone while reducing costs and maintaining hard floors in optimum condition.
Twister is an innovative set of thirteen floorcare pads impregnated with billions of microscopic diamonds. Pads for different applications are manufactured by changing the size and combination of the microscopic diamonds. This ensures the pads are less abrasive than the corresponding conventional alternative which helps to protect the floor while giving a smoother and improved appearance. Moreover, the resulting micro-polished finish of the floor is more resistant to soiling.
The pads can be used with water alone, last three times longer than traditional products, and significantly reduce the need for periodic maintenance, all of which improves sustainability and reduces the overall cost. Used this way these pads reduce chemical usage by 100%, floor pad costs by 66%, and weight of consumables by 98% (which also saves transport and handling) compared with traditional products. Working without chemicals also simplifies cleaning processes, creates a healthier environment for cleaners and bystanders, and reduces routine machine maintenance burdens.
Twister is ideal for daily maintenance to clean and polish unprotected stone floors. There are different pads in the range almost every type of hard floor. Using just four in sequence - red, white, yellow, green - on old, dull and worn floors can rejuvenate and transform floors with clean, uniform, shiny and polished results. The diamond impregnated side of the pad is coloured and works as a wear indicator.
For the very best results and sustainability the pads are ideally used with TASKI’s range of scrubber driers and rotary-disc machines which themselves are designed to use less energy, water and product than traditional machines. For example, many TASKI machines are certified under the UK government’s Water Technology List which shows they successfully meet stringent sustainability criteria and use less water. This means they qualify for an Enhanced Capital Allowance (ECA) so that customers can claim 100 per cent of the cost against their tax during the same year.
