If you are doing floor stripping in Tampa Then you need to understand Never strip and wax your floors again. Sounds impossible but because of new potassium silicate technology it is happening all around the world.
The beauty of this system is the floor maintains such a high ph that it is impossible for microbes,bacteria or virus to survive.
Waxing, stripping and burnishing floors. It’s an endless cycle for managers of hospitals, schools, retail stores and factories. Floors get worn down and damaged by this process, the costs grow.
I have been using this companies product for ten years in the auto and yacht maintenance business with great results.
If you are in the floor business,you need to see this.

Not only is it expensive but harmful to the environment.
Why do the same thing over and over when you can eliminate stripping forever.
John Hopkins is doing it. Why not you.
Millions of square feet around the world and they are saving millions in labor,and being more environmentally conscious.
The US government is doing it.Imagine that, the government trying to save money.
So what is it? It is potassium silicates.
It is called SIMIX
By the way do not call me on this.
He is the inventor.
Cheaper than wax
No more floor stripping
Coating will never yellow, chip, peel or crack
Breakthrough technology that does not support growth of microbes
Healthier than wax because bacteria, viruses, mold and algae can’t grow on it
Safer because it’s far less slippery than wax
Tougher than steel
Superior scuff and scratch resistance
Brighter rooms that smell better
Ingredients that are EPA recognized as environmentally friendly pesticides and biocides andReducing Hospital Acquired Infections
Why is SIMIX “less slippery” than floor finish? SIMIX Multi-Surface Coating has been tested in the field by a certified NACE (National Association of Corrosion Engineers) expert using what’s called a “coefficient of friction” test. Simix scored an average of .573 (Leather Sole Wet/Coefficient of Friction Test on a non-lab environment); most insurance companies consider a business at fault in “slip and fall” cases if their floors score below .5. Thus, having a SIMIX-coated floor could help protect your company in a lawsuit.
How does SIMIX work? SIMIX is nano-engineered, and works in the world of particles that are one thousand times smaller than the human eye can see. SIMIX contains sub-nano and nano-particles which bind together in a tight structure that becomes harder than steel when it dries. Once it is fully cured, SIMIX’s hardness rating is above a 9 on the Mohs scale. On the same scale, diamonds are 10 and hardened steel is 8.
How long does SIMIX take to apply? SIMIX Multi-Surface Coating is faster to apply than floor finish, because it dries more quickly. That is because SIMIX’s nano-particles force out water; if you use floor finish, you have to wait for the water to evaporate. We estimate your floors will be ready for foot traffic in 20% to 30% less time than with a floor finish coat. For step-by-step application instructions, click here.
Do we need special training to apply SIMIX Multi-Surface Coating? No. Written instructions are found on the packaging. If you can apply wax, you can apply SIMIX
What kinds of floors can it be used on? SIMIX Multi-Surface Coating can be used on virtually any kind of hard floor, including terrazzo.
What type of cleaners can be used on SIMIX Multi-Surface Coating? Only SIMIX All Purpose Cleaner should be used to maintain the high pH that prevents microbial growth and cross contamination. Repeated use of standard liquid cleaners may cause the surface to be slippery when wet.
WARNING: Liquid neutral cleaners and disinfectants dry to a bio-film which creates a food source for bacteria to contaminate the surface.
Will it make my floors shine like floor finish? SIMIX makes your room brighter instantly. Your floors will not have a “wet” shine like floor finish; instead, you’ll have a crystal chandelier-like shine.
Will it change the color of my floor? SIMIX is clear. It will not change the color of your floor, and it will not crack, yellow, or chip.
How does it make a room smell better? SIMIX Multi-Surface Coating has a pH of 11, which is above the range where microbes can exist. Odor-causing bacteria cannot grow on floors coated with SIMIX because of the high pH and the nano-particles of titanium dioxide. This makes SIMIX Multi-Surface Coating ideal for healthcare settings.
How much does it cost per square foot? Significantly less than a premium floor finish.
Where is it already in use? SIMIX is in use in schools, hospitals and stores in New York, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Florida, North Carolina, Georgia, California and Nevada.
Is SIMIX Multi-Surface Coating environmentally friendly? SIMIX contains potassium silicate, which is an EPA recognized environmentally bio-friendly pesticide, and titanium dioxide (TiO2) a photo catalyst, which is recognized by the EPA as an environmentally bio-friendly biocide.Reality is NO MORE FLOOR STRIPPING
