Back to Wipes Technology

Materials materials

All of our wipes products are made from materials that have been developed to meet the specific needs of the application or task at hand.  From heavy duty abrasive scrubs to soft maceratable fibres, our materials are carefully developed to work in synergy with our chemical formulations ensuring the highest levels of performance.

Method of construction

Layers of spunbond and meltblown Polypropylene fibres are bonded together in a high heat process before a hydrophilic coating is applied. This material is 100% synthetic.

Features

  • High Strength in both directions – across and along the wipe
  • Very Low linting – low risk of leaving contaminating fibres on surfaces
  • Excellent solution retention – ensuring even wetness throughout the wipe
  • Efficient Solution release – active wipe ingredients are transferred to the surface

Method of construction

A three tier technology process where the base layer of poly/viscose fibres are carded before coarse polypropylene fibres are applied via the spunbond process. The substrate is strengthened via thermal point bonding.

Features

  • Thick and strong – suitable for the toughest wiping tasks
  • Abrasive Scrub texture – helping the removal of tough ground in grime
  • Smooth reverse surface ideal for hand cleansing and general wiping

Method of construction

Fibres are mechanically entangled through the application of high pressure water jets.

Features

  • Thick, soft and strong for for a high quality, high performance wiping experience
  • Apertured texture – making the material highly absorbant
  • High liquid capacity – suitable for wiping larger surfaces
  • Drapable feel – making the wipe feel more like a reusable cloth
Macarateable Airlaid material

Method of construction

Short staple fibres are fed into a turbulent airstream and distributed over a conveyor to form a randomly orientated low density web, which is then carded and thermally dried to produce a high loft and soft substrate.

Features

  • Thick and soft – ideal for body cleansing even on sensitive skin
  • Highly absorbent, releasing liquid to the skin whilst lifting & removing dirt
  • Fully maceratable for safe convenient disposal in most macerators
Advance Thermobond Material

Method of construction

Fibres are combed to become crosslapped before being thermally point bonded via a heated roller.

Features

  • High Strength in both directions – across and along the wipe
  • Thick and voluminous allowing for high liquid capacity
  • Excellent solution release – almost all the liquid is transferred to surface
