Instructions

Follow these simple steps to achieve great results with less mess in less time without the use of harsh chemicals.

FOR USE WITH FLOOR MACHINES: 17” – 20” (175-350 rpm)

1. Sweep or vacuum to remove all abrasive soils.
2. Clean surface with “Stone Cleaner”.
3. Rinse surface thoroughly.
4. Center “Monkey Pad” on drive plate on floor machine.
5. 175 rpm machines work best with 30 lb drive plate. 300-350 rpm machines do not require extra weight.
6. Apply enough water to 2’ X 5’ area to lightly wet the
surface. No need for huge puddles.
7. Move the floor machine in an oval pattern, counter clockwise to keep the water inside the work area.
8. Check surface after 15-30 seconds to see if desired
results are achieved.
9. If YES, repeat steps 6-8 on the rest of the room one section at a time.
10. Overlap sections by 4” – 6” to keep an even finish.
11. If NO, repeat steps 7 & 8 until desired result with that grit is achieved (usually 15-45 seconds per 2’ X 5’ area).
12. Rinse whole area between grits.
13. Rinse pad thoroughly after each use and allow to dry.
14. Repeat steps 6-10 with grits as you go to higher number until desired finish is achieved.

FOR USE WITH HAND POLISHER: 7” Variable Speed (600-3000 rpm)

1. Sweep or vacuum to remove all abrasive soils.
2. Clean surface with “Stone Cleaner”.
3. Rinse surface thoroughly.
4. Center “Monkey Pad” on drive plate on hand polisher.
5. Apply enough water to 2’ X 3’ area to lightly wet the surface. No need for huge puddles.
6. At lowest speed setting, move the tool in an oval
pattern, counter clockwise to keep the water inside the work area.
7. Check surface after 15-30 seconds to see if desired results are achieved.
8. If YES, repeat steps 6-8 on the rest of the room one section at a time.
9. Overlap sections by 4” – 6” to keep an even finish.
10. If NO, repeat steps 7 & 8 until desired result with that grit is achieved (usually 15-45 seconds per 2’ X 5’ area).
11. Rinse whole area between grits.
12. Rinse pad thoroughly after each use and allow to dry.
13. Repeat steps 6-10 with grits as you go to higher number until desired finish is achieved.

TIPS
1. Use more water with lower grits and less water with higher grits.
2. To verify if you are finished with any grit level, follow these steps: Use pad in one spot for 20-30 seconds and squeegee water back, if it looks better than the rest of the area, keep working it.
3. Use more weight or pressure and less water on grits 3,000 and above.
4. Overuse of the lower grit pads (200, 400, & 800) can cause orange peel effect. To avoid this use more water, faster movement of the machine, and spend less time.
5. Softer stones like Limestone and Travertine may not need to have the full range of grits used. In most cases you can use the 3000 grit pad, then rinse, use the 11000 grit pads and be done.
6. Too much weight on the machine can also cause orange peel effect. A lighter weight, higher speed machine is recommended over a heavy weight, slower machine. High RPMs, Low weight.
7. Pad maintenance is very important. The pads may become contaminated if left diamond side down on a solid surface. It is vital to clean/rinse, dry, and store the pads properly after each use. Make sure you store the pads face-to-back. The colored side of the pads should always face the same direction.
8. When using the pads, NEVER use any chemicals, rinsing agents, or polishing agents. This will contaminate the pads and cause them to function incorrectly. Use water only!
