New products - wipes and cloths

30th of June 2011

A look at the latest product innovations in the wipes and cloths sector.

Purpose engineered

PGI says its Chicopee wiping range features purpose engineered solutions for the food & service, floor & surface, and industrial & automotive sectors.

Within the food & service range, for example, there are disposable solutions for one shift usage or durable wipes that can be washed several times. J-Cloth/Lavette, J-Cloth 3000, Lavette Plus and Lavette Super are FCC approved according to EN regulation 1935/2004 and all are available in five colours.

The latest addition is the J-Cloth 3000, which is biodegradable and compostable. This means it can be disposed of in the industrial composting waste stream.

Tackle spillages

The Perform range of cellulose wipers has been developed by Peter Grant Papers to safely absorb and remove water-based chemicals, dyes and inks, as well as dry powders, dust, lint and other dry particles.

The nonwoven wipes in the line are suitable for general spills in controlled environments, and can also carry and release solvents to surfaces. This makes them suited to surface preparation as well as cleaning.

There is also a dedicated dispensing system for the wipes, the Perform Silver Carton. This portable waterproof carton unit can be used in dirty and damp areas where fixed systems are not an option, and has won a packaging design award.

Hand wipe

New from Actalys is its Hand Cleaner Wipe, which comes in a bucket of 90 towels. Featuring a paraben-free cleaning formula, a box of 18 towels is also available.

The company specialises in industrial cleaning wipes and offers private label products for some of Europe's most important distribution groups. And its Quickly microfibre cloth boasts high resistance and absorption capacity.

Pictograms sewn in

For clearer identification of the area of use of its cleaning cloths, Vermop offers its premium Softtronic I and Softtronic II microfibre cloths with sewn-in pictograms for the area of use in the
matching colour.

In this way, the company says, the cleaning operative can see at a glance which cloth is intended for which purpose, eg, blue cloth for general surface cleaning.

A wide selection of cloths is available in the range, along with Tuboxxes, so colour coded cleaning systems can be implemented easily.

No alcohol

New from EcoTech (Europe) is an alcohol-free hand and disinfectant wipe for use primarily in the healthcare sector. This has been tested to EN13727 standards, it says.

The company claims the wipe is also suitable for use in a range of other industries, such as food processing and bakeries.

Efficient in workshops

Tork Performance dispensers from SCA have been designed to improve workflow and reduce costs in the workshop. The dispensers, which can house the full range of Tork industrial wipers, help to increase efficiency while also reducing waste and over-consumption.

Made from ABS plastic and coated steel, the dispensers protect the wipers before use and make them easy to locate when needed. SCA says they are easy to clean, fill and operate.

The W1 floorstand saves time spent reloading since the spring-loaded spindle allows a giant wiper roll to be changed within seconds.
