FAQ Melamin Pad

FAQ MelaminPlusPads

What makes the OE (MPP OE) pad unique?

The OE pad is only 15 mm thick to allow the high-frequency vibrations from the machine’s vibrating plate to be transferred directly to the floor. The pad can only remove dirt when the vibrations are transferred to the floor.

The vibrations must not “escape” via the back or the foam of the pad – otherwise the pad will remain motionless and have no impact on the floor.

Introduced at CMS Berlin 2019, our innovative MPP OE is composed of premium composite foam made from melamine resin with a firmly-attached Velcro back that is ideal for transferring the machine’s high-frequency vibrations. After use, the Velcro back comes off easily without leaving fibers on the Velcro hooks of the vibrating plate.

What is the difference between standard (MPP) and basic (MPP basic) MelaminPlusPads?

Basic pads were developed for use with single-disc machines, and therefore, without an opening in the foam.

Standard pads are pads for scrubber-driers, and therefore, have an opening in the foam for mounting in the pad holder with centerlock. In daily maintenance cleaning, the motor head of the machine is moved up and down many times. Therefore, we recommend using pad holders with centerlock, which ensure proper hold of the pad.

Why do melamine pads come in different colors?

Due to the manufacturing process, the color or share of gray and white melamine foam may vary. However, we use exclusively BASF foam, so there is no difference in cleaning performance.

What is the difference between MelaminPlusPad and PolyPlusPad?

MelaminPlusPads consist of refined melamine foam and have the best possible mechanical cleaning performance. PolyPlusPads have special approx. 10 mm long fibers and good “depth effect”, especially on very structured surfaces. They are washable up to 60 ° C and have a very long service life.

What are the general advantages of using haid-tec MelaminPlusPads?

Flooring can be cleaned with minimal time, effort and chemical use.

Why is melamine foam used for a cleaning pad?

Melamine foam can achieve an outstanding mechanical cleaning performance on mineral floor coverings.

What advantage is there in comparison to pure melamine?

Pure melamine tears easily. Refined melamine foam, however, is more tear-proof. This leads to longer lifetimes – on polished surfaces for example up to ten hours instead of one hour with pure melamine pads.

Whose idea was it to use the special melamine foam as a cleaning pad?

The company haid-tec from Rottenacker, Germany was the first to implement these newly developed pads as a cleaning solution for porcelain stoneware. Here the challenge was to remove a layer of grey fog, that had formed on the surface of the porcelain stoneware flooring, particularly as a result of using inappropriate cleaning products.

Which types of cleaning can be carried out with the haid-tec MelaminPlusPad®?

Basic cleaning: Use of e.g. 16-inch MelaminPlusPad on a single-disc machine.

Daily cleaning: regular use in daily cleaning, equipping the scrubber-drier machines with the corresponding MelaminPlusPads.

How are MelaminPlusPads mounted onto scrubber-drier machines?

The haid-tec MelaminPlusPad® is simply mounted onto the pad holder of the scrubber-drier machine. The floor is then travelled over as normal with the machine.

Which factors is the cleaning performance dependent upon?

The more slowly and frequently the floor is covered by the cleaning machine, and the higher its contact pressure, the better the cleaning performance.

Are references available for the haid-tec MelaminPlusPad®?

haid-tec MelaminPlusPads have been used successfully for years on floor coverings by market leaders in industry, trade and business.
