PowerStar Concrete Floor Maintenance System
June 25, 2010
Sparta, North Carolina- Amano Pioneer Eclipse, a worldwide manufacturer of professional floor care products, introduces the PowerStar” Concrete Floor Maintenance System. Concrete is rapidly becoming the “floor of choice” for many big box retailers, supermarkets and educational facilities because of its durability and lower maintenance costs. Up until now, many floor care professionals have used traditional products and practices to maintain these surfaces with varying degrees of success. With the PowerStar Concrete Floor Maintenance System, these professionals now have an effective integrated system of pads and chemicals specifically designed for concrete floors that work with traditional scrubbing and burnishing equipment.
“Many facility managers have been told that concrete is a no maintenance surface,” states Derrick Hamm, Research and Development Manager at Amano Pioneer Eclipse. “But these managers discovered that without a continual maintenance system in place, a concrete floor can quickly lose its aesthetic and physical characteristics.” The PowerStar Concrete Floor Maintenance System gives a facility manager the flexibility to apply the right amount of treatment to clean and protect a concrete floor.
The System consists of four major programs ” daily maintenance, periodic maintenance, light restoration and full restoration. The Daily Maintenance Program uses automatic scrubbers, high speed burnishers and PowerPolish” HT curing pads to maintain the floors appearance. The Periodic Maintenance Program uses special polishing pads called PowerGloss to remove minor scratches and surface marring. The Light Restoration Program uses more aggressive PowerGloss pads to address floors with more severe wear. And the Full Restoration Program incorporates special diamond grinding machines to remove surface stock on new, unpolished or heavily damaged surfaces.
“The important aspect of PowerStar Concrete Floor Maintenance System is that the Daily Maintenance Program is replaced with more aggressive programs only when it cannot achieve acceptable results,” states Vic Thomas, Executive Director of Sales at Amano Pioneer Eclipse. “The timing of these more aggressive routines may vary from one facility to the next and within a single facility as well. PowerStar addresses the variety of floors and customer requirements in one easy system.” For more information on the PowerStar Concrete Floor Maintenance System or any of Amano Pioneer Eclipse products, please visit www.pioneer-eclipse.com.
