These 20" Texsteel steel wool floor prep pads are the professional choice for crystallizing and polishing floors. These pads mount to our 20" Floor Buffer Machine, or any of our other 20" floor buffers. These Texsteel steel wool pads are great for buffing a parquet floor to a beautiful luster, crystallizing a floor to a mirror-like finish, or stripping a tough, dry, paste-wax build-up.
The pads are 3/8” thick and made from a needle-punched construction. Each Texsteel pad clings to the fiber brush on the bottom of any disc-type floor machine and is reversible for extended life. If you are looking for a fluffier pad that won't clog up as much, see our 20" 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.
