Floor Stripping Residue

Floor Stripping Residue

These spheres are the result of using a mechanical buffer with a solvent to remove the sealant over a vinyl floor. The rotary buffer throws out solvent softened particles of coating material and vinyl that form these spheres as the solvent evaporates. These particles can be a source of malodor and may be an upper respiratory irritant.
