Floor pads are ideal for relatively level floors. If you have uneven floors, a brush may be more suitable.


As a general rule of thumb, the lighter the colour, the less abrasive a floor pad will be. For example White pads are very soft and ideal for polishing floors, whereas Black pads are much more abrasive and generally used for stripping or deep scrubbing tasks.


White Floor Pads


The White Victor Flo or pad is the softest of the floorpads that we supply, this means it’s very delicate on floors. Designed for Burnishing and



polishing clean, dry floors, the Victor white polishing floor pad is perfect for producing a high gloss finish to floors.

water-based resins.
