If you are an expert looking to crystallize or polish your floors, our 17 inch Textsteel steel wool floor pads are just what you need. You can use them on our 17" Floor Buffing Machine, or on any of the other 17" floor buffers that we have to offer. 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 for a longer life and will attach to the fiber brush on the bottom of any disc-type floor machine. If you need a pad that isn't as compact and won't clog up, take a look at our 17" Jumbo steel wool pads.
You must select your desired grade from the drop-down menu above. We offer 8 different levels of abrasiveness for our steel wool floor pads. The grade is determined by the thickness of the steel wool wire. Please read the descriptions below to figure out which grade you need for your application.
