The New Class of Renewable Finishes R”educe, R”esist, R”enew The Three New R’s of Hard Surface Care!
Hotels, Shopping Malls, Business buildings, Schools and Universities, and other properties that wish to maintain a high level of cleanliness and a pristine appearance often use some kind of topical floor finish. Maintaining a high shine and spotless floors, however, requires a well-thought-out program and carefully selected products. Here are some considerations and cautions:
Environmental Issues of Concern: Maintaining a floor finish can and often does include periodic stripping of the finish and applying a new layer of product. The job of removing the old finish and applying a new one is labor intensive and often involves the use of caustic chemicals. The labor and chemicals can be costly. Emulsifying agents are needed to keep the dissolved wax or resin suspended in the stripping solution before it is rinsed away. Many phosphate containing agents are often used to deal with the hard water and enable clean rinsing. This is especially true if the stripping agent contains soap. The waste water then becomes a burden on the water treatment centers. These treatment centers are already under-designed to take and deal with toxic chemicals.
Facilities trying their best to become environmentally sound should seriously consider the new types of floor finishes that require virtually no stripping of a soiled finish. Why? Almost all finishes on the market are carried by solvents to hold the resins – even when said to be water based finishes. The dirty spent finish is thrown down the drain to find its way into our waterways or groundwater in some form or another.
Chelating agents are often used to combat water hardness and to facilitate cleaning. They include EDTA (ethylene diamine tetraacetic acid – as a sodium salt) NTA (nitriltriacetic acid – a sodium salt as well) Look at the MSDS of the finishes, cleansers and strippers and know that these are going down the drain. Reducing the volume of ingredients used and the volume of waste water can greatly impact the environment in a good way. Salts and solvents that can make waterways very polluted.
Marble Shine Services is proud to represent a line of “Renewable Finishes” for Stone, Tile, Concrete, VCT, Wood, and a host of other hard surface flooring types. The new finishes will make the floor more stain resistant than ever before. They will greatly increase the hardness and abrasion resistance for extended durability. The finishes will not trap dirt and oils into the coating and will maintain a clean look at all times when properly cleaned. The floors are now in a position to be renewed in high traffic areas without the need for complete stripping and applying of a new finish.
Janitorial supply companies will Not be quick to endorse such a system of floor care. It eliminates constant spray buffing, deep cleaning, stripping, and multiple coats of new finish. Janitorial supply houses fear such a product that reduces their profits! Since the new generation of these renewable floor finishes is so stain resistant to soiling, the use of daily cleansers is also greatly reduced.
A new motto of floor care can be: R”EDUCE – chemical usage in daily, deep cleaning , stripping, and floor finishes needed. R”ENEW – using a Renewable Finish that doesn’t need frequent stripping and recoating to refresh/renew the shine and sparkling appearance in high traffic areas. R”ESIST abrasion and staining from all kinds of contaminates. “REDUCE, RENEW, AND RESIST” can be the new motto of floor care starting today and in the years ahead.

New Product Pricing Notes SuperTop™XL , StoneHardener™-3Polish , & TK6™NanoCoat are all three specialty finishes that can do amazing things for the floor care industry. As such, I will want to qualify their use before selling them. I will want to know where the product will be used, the desired results, and the after- care dedication to its use long term. It will be suggested to do a sample area first. Commercial accounts only- I will discount a quart or gallon to include a quart of either StoneClean™”60”, or “104” or StoneClean™ Plus to assure a superb cleaning before application.
I sell at the same exact pricing that RJSC does. SuperTop™XL $22.00 per Quart – $65.00 per Gallon TK6™Nano Coat $33.50 per Quart – $114.00 per Gallon StoneHardener™3Polish $25.00 per Quart – $74.00 per Gallon SRI™ Treatment $46.00 per Quart $162 per Gallon To include shipping for a sample kit of one of these three plus the best cleanser I will sell them just slightly more than what RJSC sells for retail.
A one time only price discounting shipping SuperTop™XL $25 per Qt. & $70.00 per gallon TK6™NanoCoat $37.50 per Quart & $120.00 per Gallon StoneHardener™3Polish $30.00 per Quart & $80.00 per Gallon SRI™ Treatment $50.00 per Quart & $170.00 per Gallon Once decided upon which of the three cleansers to combine best I will send a PayPal Request for the total.
