Floor Pad and Hand Pad – Source of Supply

On January 24, 2013, Continental Commercial Products announced that it has decided to discontinue production of Glit non-woven hand pads and floor pads effective March 22, 2013, and to discontinue accepting orders for the affected products on February 22, 2013. As a result, Glit customers will look for new sources of supply for hand pads, floor pads, and sanding screens.

3M stands ready to assist your company and help ensure that your company has a reliable and stable source of supply. 3M invented the first synthetic non-woven floor pad and hand pad in 1958. Now, 55 years later, 3M continues to invest globally in non-woven product development, manufacturing, and supply of hand pads, floor pads, and sanding screens.
