This environmentally friendly, labor-saving system virtually eliminates the need to scrub and redcoat, as as strip and refinishing programs. Just dustup, wet-mop when necessary and periodically auto scrub. That’s all.
Scratches are no problem, as minor blemishes can be burnished away. GlassGuard-V is so hard that even a black pad cannot hurt it. However, we recommended burnishing with a diamond pad just once or twice a year.
Dry time is less than 15 minutes and initial burnishing can be commenced within 30 minutes. To really make the floor pop, burnish with a diamond pad 24-72 hours after application. Of course, if you prefer a matte or satin finish, we can provide that, too.
Hand sanitizers and most other solvents simply evaporate or can be wiped away with no effect on the coating. We are in the strongest VCT coating in the industry.
•Glass-Guard-V utilizes a proprietary been of silicas and natural ingredients.
•Film forming and penetrating, creating a strong bond. Not moisture sensitive.
•Will not white out like floor finish.
•Reduce slip and falls. Superior Coefficient of friction. 0.78-0.91 wet or dry.
•Can be applied on top of existing floor finish for superior extended wear or applied to a freshly stripped floor by itself.
•Superior scuff resistance.
•Works like a walk off mat! When applied at entrances, the coating cleans off the bottom of shoes within the first few feet preventing dirt and grime from being tracked throughout facility allowing floors to stay cleaner longer. Cleanup is easy with just water and a red pad on an auto scrubber.
Slippery floors are not only dangerous, but also costly to an owner. Eighty-five percent of workers comp claims come from slip-and-falls at an annual cost of $70 billion. About a quarter of employees who are out on workers comp claims are off the job for an average of 31 days, according to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics. The average slip and fall insurance claim is $50,000. Many slip and falls can be eliminated by increasing floor traction or co-efficient of friction. Our coasting have a 0.78-.91 co-efficient of friction either wet or dry. This is substantially safer than traditional floor finishes that are at .5 and less.
Hygiene and Indoor Air Quality
Traditional floor finishes are soft and porous and attract dirt, street grime, bacteria and germs. Because floor finish is soft, every time we walk across the finish we lightly abrade the surface with our feed and kick those germs and bacteria airborne where they spread onto our clothing and into our lungs. These tiny contaminants can travel through air circulation systems. Glass-Guard-V is harder than any other floor finish and doesn’t walk off or trap germs and bacteria. Our coating is a blend of silicas which can actually inhibit microbial growth.
Stripping, waxing and burnishing floors. It’s an endless cycle for managers of hospitals, schools, retail stores and factories. With GlassGuard-V, we permanently eliminate the need for repeat stripping.
