Floor Sanding Materials Listed below are the different types of floor sanding materials we provide:
Tungsten Scraper The final “detailing” clean up of the floor is made much easier by using a tungsten scraper. This is a purchase item and is truly amazing in its speed of operation. It gets behind radiator pipes, into extreme corners etc. There is no other tool on the market, either powered or hand, that works nearly as well.Filler There are two types of filler used in wood floors: cellulose filler for hardwood / parquet floors, and resin-based filler for square-edged floorboards.Cellulose filler is mixed with the final fine sanding dust from the floor for an invisible repair on hardwood floors.
Resin filler is used for square edged floorboards because of its superior side bonding properties.
We usually recommend brushes over rollers for one off jobs as they give much better results in most domestic situations: For example, you can control the amount of finish more accurately, spot the odd bit of debris, get into corners etc. with a brush.
Rollers can cause foaming and require some familiarization to get good results.

The important thing to remember is to use a good floor brush, 5 or 6 inches wide. Regular paint brushes are not suitable as they don’t ‘load up’ with finish. Floor brushes are designed for the thicker high-quality varnishes which we sell.
