Americo, a family owned and operated manufacturing business, has been embracing eco-friendly principles since its beginning over 40 years ago.

Americo implemented sound environmentally friendly practices long before it became a business cornerstone.

With a green emphasis on all their processes, from the raw products used in manufacturing to conserving water, Americo is concerned about its environmental impact.

One hundred percent of the polyester fiber in floor pads manufactured by Americo comes from recycled polyethylene terephthalate (PET) plastic, with a minimum of 80 percent post-consumer waste.

Primary sources of these materials are recycled soda and water bottles.

Americo uses only water-based latex resins in its floor pad binding process; no hazardous resins are used in its manufacturing process.

Plus, all of the shipping cartons used by Americo contain a minimum of 45 percent recycled material.

Maroon EcoPrep Floor Pad

Americo is promoting a sustainable future with dynamic products such as the Maroon EcoPrep "EPP" floor pad.

This floor pad has been designed to remove floor finish without the use of harsh chemicals.

Simply use dry or with plain water.

This pad, with its micro-abrasive particles, will maintain an aggressive cut for superior performance throughout this process.

This pad is also ideal for surface preparation on wood floors.

It will remove multiple layers of heavily damaged urethane coats before refinishing and is perfect for gym floor maintenance.

The Maroon EcoPrep is available in both round and rectangular styles for use on oscillating floor machines or standard rotary equipment.

Twister Diamond Cleaning System

Twister™ is a revolutionary cleaning system consisting of floor pads containing billions of microscopic diamonds that clean and polish floors mechanically instead of using chemicals.

With a simple three-step system, these pads will produce a dazzling, brilliant shine to dull, unfinished floors.

This is all done without the use of chemicals.; just a fine mist of water and the Twister system will produce amazing results.

The Twister floor pads are excellent for use on ultra high-speed electric, propane and battery burnishers.

They also work well on standard electric floor machines as well as automatic scrubbers.

This system works exceptionally well on concrete, terrazzo, marble and other stone surfaces.

Aqua Dam Eco Floor Mats

Americo has also recently introduced the earth friendly Aqua Dam Eco floor mat with its surface constructed entirely out of PET fiber that comes from recycled soda and water bottles.

It is ideal for use both indoors and out.

With its rubber reinforced diamond pattern, the longwearing Aqua Dam Eco is excellent for use at front entrances to clean shoes and trap dirt, sand, water and snow at the door.

Plus, its thick, cleated nitrile rubber backing reduces the mats' movement when placed on the floor.

Look to Americo for innovative products, from floor pads to floor matting, which not only provide superior results, but also promote a sustainable future.
