PRIMOthane Floor Scrubber Squeegee
Making Your Difficult Jobs Easy
PRIMOthane® Floor Scrubber Squeegee is custom formulated by Midwest Rubber to achieve high oil and chemical resistance along with excellent abrasion resistance on all types of floor surfaces.
When using low volumes of water to scrub floors or when cleaning rubberized floors, gum rubber squeegees can make squeaking noises.
PRIMOthane eliminates the noise so cleaning can be done without disturbing the surroundings.
Oil and chemicals can easily destroy the effectiveness of a rubber squeegee.
PRIMOthane delivers superior resistance to oils and chemicals, keeping its shape where most rubber will warp and fail.
Rough, anti-slip floors will prematurely wear out commodity squeegees.
The unique polyurethane technology ofPRIMOthane resists wear and retains a sharp edge longer, reducing the need for frequent adjustments and replacements.
FLOOR SCRUBBER SQUEEGEES
PRIMOthane is custom formulated by Midwest Rubber for the floor care industry to achieve high oil and chemical resistance along with excellent abrasion resistance on all types of floor surfaces.
PRIMOthane is a premium urethane squeegee material and it delivers outstanding performance in flexibility, tear and abrasion resistance. When it comes to oils and chemicals, PRIMOthane keeps its shape where most rubber will warp and fail.
In demanding conditions, PRIMOthane® quickly pays for itself by delivering consistent cleaning results. It’s unique polyurethane technology resists wear and retains a sharp edge longer, reducing the need for frequent adjustments and replacements—improving your productivity.
Not all 60 Duro urethane’s are the same. Midwest Rubber specially formulates their PRIMOthane for the floor care industry and tests the squeegees in their own research and development facility. As a result, Midwest Rubber can control and continually improve the development and manufacturing process.
Other companies that die cut or laser cut their squeegees do not formulate their own urethane. They buy urethane it from another manufacturer that doesn’t make urethane specifically for floor care. This is an inexpensive way to produce urethane squeegees, but their performance in floor care is marginal and inconsistent.
RELATIVE PERFORMANCE RESULTS
PRIMOthane is ideal for demanding floor cleaning applications. It is a synthetic polymer that has been formulated with a wide range of properties, with ideal characteristics for use in harsh floor cleaning environments.
In controlled testing at our research facility, PRIMOthane demonstrated the following performance benefits for our customers:
• High oil and chemical resistance
• High abrasion resistance
• Excellent tensile strength
• Excellent surface contact
• Excellent life span
OIL AND CHEMICAL RESISTANCE
Many companies offer polyurethane squeegees for oil and chemical pickup, typically they are hard and cannot effectively pickup the cleaning solution. PRIMOthane not only resists oils and chemicals, but it has the flexibility to pick up the cleaning solution, across a wide variety of floor types, while leaving a clean, dry floor.
Midwest Rubber’s PRIMOthane with antimicrobial properties is coming soon.

In low temperatures, normal polyurethane material will will lose its flexibility and resilience, resulting poor performance. Briefly exposed to cold temperatures, normal polyurethane can recover once in room temperature. However, if exposed to cold for an extended period of time, normal polyurethane will not recover.
PRIMOthane has very good low temperature performance. Even in below zero temperatures for long periods of time, PRIMOthane maintains flexibility and resilience. This means floor scrubbing machines with PRIMOthane will have excellent working performance even in cold environments.
