Ultrawipe / Ultraroll Lint Free Wipe - Technical Specification

General Product Description

Ultrawipes are manufactured from a synergistic blend of virgin Polyester and Rayon hydro entangled into a high strength uniform fabric. The material is a premium quality product that has been custom developed to provide the optimum balance of attributes such as high absorbency, toughness, abrasion resistance and freedom from particle generation and abrasive characteristics found in other competing materials that contain wood pulp derived cellulose.

Ultrawipe material contain no wood pulp or reconstituted materials.

Ultrawipe has been specially developed for the demanding service conditions of Under Stencil Automatic Cleaning systems and heavy-duty manual wiping tasks. It is also suited to critical applications involving lens and optic cleansing. Ultrawipe material is stable when saturated with all types of industrial solvents, acids, alkali, amines etc. and exhibits exceptional wet burst strength and stability when pre-saturated with cleaning solvent blends.
