These 15" Textsteel steel wool floor prep pads are brilliant for polishing and buffing. They can be attached to any of our 15" Floor Scrubbing Buffers to achieve your desired results. The Textsteel pads are designed for maximum performance, making them tougher, stronger and more compact than any other pad. They won’t tear, shred, fray at the edges and have less tendency to roll or bunch up.
These Textsteel steel wool pads will strip any tough, dry, paste-wax build-up off your floors. They will also buff a parquet floor to a brilliant luster or crystallize a floor to a glossy finish. Each pad is 3/8" thick, made from a needle-punched construction. The Textsteel pads are reversible to outperform and outlast even the so-called "premium" or "heavy duty" pads. If you need a pad that isn't as compact and won't clog up, take a look at our 15" Jumbo steel wool pads.
