Do you use a metal stripping pad to strip finish from a tile or a vinyl floor, or just use a black pad or another pad?


To the best of my knowledge, metal stripping pads are used to strip paint from metal, making them far too abrasive for use on flooring.
For stripping floor finish, use a standard black strip pad under a single-disc rotary machine.
