Buckeye and Choice Partners Purchasing Cooperative

For schools and government entities, the legal procurement process for vendor contracts can be difficult and time consuming. Choice Partners understands the challenges surrounding the legal procurement needs and government purchasing requirements. They offer procurement and contract solutions to meet strict government purchasing requirements. Choice Partners’ staff complete the procurement process to make contracts readily available to schools and other government entities. This saves the purchaser from drafting, publishing, reviewing, and awarding their own bid.

Through a competitive, legal evaluation process, Choice Partners has awarded Buckeye International a contract for custodial and janitorial equipment supplies. This contract covers all Buckeye programs and products, and means that Buckeye products are legally approved and offered at the best value. Purchasers have immediate access to the exact items tested and approved in their school district or government facility as well as a trained, local distributor to support their staff.

Buckeye’s maintenance programs include the Symmetry® Hand Hygiene Program, Buckeye Hard Floor Care Program, Reflections® Wood Floor Program, and Eco® Proportioning Program. Because Buckeye products and programs are approved by Choice Partners, you can be sure you are purchasing safer products that make a positive impact on teachers, students, and the environment. Buckeye also has several Green Seal certified products to further your facility’s green initiatives. Whatever your maintenance requirements, Buckeye offers a full line of maintenance products and supporting staff to address your needs and concerns.

Buckeye Floor Finishes

The appearance of your facility’s floors can mean the difference between a good or bad first impression. An effective hard floor care program keeps your floors looking their best. Buckeye’s Hard Floor Care Program can be customized to fit your facility’s floor type, equipment, or maintenance needs.

Buckeye floor finishes are key components of the Buckeye Hard Floor Care Program. Buckeye floor finishes are U.L. listed for slip resistance and maintain a depth of gloss that is second to none. Buckeye provides floor finish options for a variety of floor types from resilient floors to hard floors. They are easy to apply and fast drying.

Each Buckeye floor finish is scuff, scratch, and black mark resistant. Buckeye floor finishes are non-yellowing, meaning they do not darken over time due to outdated product formulations and floor finish color or additives that make floors look dirty and dated. They are also non-powdering. Powdering is excessive breakup of a non-durable floor finish under floor traffic or burnishing that produces dust, requiring additional cleanup.

Typically, 90% of a floor maintenance budget is spent on labor. Therefore, one of the greatest features of Buckeye’s floor finishes is their ability to extend your strip cycle. The durability and excellence of Buckeye floor finishes enables you to extend your strip cycle up to 3 years, saving from 20-40% on product and labor costs.

Buckeye Floor Strippers

The appearance of your floors can have an immense impact on your facility’s first impression. A complete floor care program is the best way to keep your floors looking their best. Buckeye’s Hard Floor Care Program can be customized to fit the floor type, cost, and maintenance needs of your facility. Buckeye floor finishes are non-yellowing and non-powdering. They protect your floors from highly abrasive soils and extend the life of your floors.

The complete Buckeye Hard Floor Care Program can extend your strip cycles to three years. However, even the strongest, most effective floor finishes need to be stripped in order to keep your facility floor looking its best.

Buckeye floor strippers are formulated with patented Liquescent® technology to remove floor finish with one application. Each floor stripper works in cold water, helping to save energy. They are butyl-free and do not have harsh odors.

JuggernautBuckeye’s floor strippers include Juggernaut®, Liquid Shovel®, Penetrate, Revelation®, RipSaw®, S.W.A.T.® NA, and Base Hit. They work in one application to liquefy the toughest crosslinking floor finishes.

Juggernaut, Penetrate, RipSaw, S.W.A.T. NA, and Revelation are meant for all types of flooring while Base Hit and Liquid Shovel were designed for specialized application. Base Hit is a baseboard stripping gel that can emulsify floor finish buildup on baseboards, resilient tiles, and hard surface flooring. Liquid Shovel is a mild pH floor stripper that works best on pH sensitive flooring such as rubber, linoleum, and Marmoleum®.

Other unique features of Buckeye floor strippers include RipSaw’s Automatic Dilution Indicator (ADI®). When diluting the product, the solution will turn cloudy, allowing you to achieve the desired dilution ratio without wasting floor stripper.

Penetrate is Buckeye’s Green Seal certified environmental floor stripper. It meets Green Seal standard GS-40 and is safer for both workers and the environment.

Buckeye floor strippers are designed to remove the most stubborn floor finishes on a variety of floor types. Contact your Buckeye representative to find out more about Buckeye floor strippers and Buckeye’s Hard Floor Care Program.
