Industrial Cleaning Cloths

TIDDOX® Industrial cleaning cloths are tough and durable, ideally suited to applications where superior strength and absorbency are required. The Industrial Wiper range is suited to the varied needs of the manufacturing, mining, engineering, printing, painting, oil and marine industries.



Modern industrial wiping solutions involve specifically designed industrial wipers that are made with an industrial task in mind. Historically, workshops would just use old RECYCLED COTTON T-SHIRTS for cleaning up each and every task, however these days there is a move towards less bulky, cost effective and task orientated manufactured industrial wipers in order to reduce wastage and improve consistency.

RECYCLED T-SHIRTS RAGS come packaged in 10kg and 5kg bags. The rags are from scraps of used second hand T-Shirt materials, as as such differ in shape, size and texture. They are run through a metal detector to identify any sharp metal objects which are then removed, and compressed packed into plastic bags. The challenge with rags has always been the inconsistency of the materials and the absorbency of the differing scraps, as not all cloths are suitable for use resulting in wastage. Also, being cotton, they can leave lint residue after wiping, and the bulky compressed packed size makes them expensive to transport and store, resulting in an overall higher cost in use compared to synthetically manufactured wipers. Whilst TIDDOX still offers traditional "BAGS OF RAGS" in options of either WHITE COTTON T-SHIRT RAGS or MIXED COLOURED T-SHIRT RAGS , its speciality is in manufacturing specially engineered LOW LINT / LINT FREE INDUSTRIAL WIPERS, which are more hygienic, offer greater consistency in size and material, and are easier to store and transport. The material used in manufacturing industrial wipers is controlled and therefore they are purposely designed to absorb and clean more efficiently than traditional workshop rags. Examples of these newer, cleaner alternatives to rags are the very economical OMNIWIPES , which are packaged in cartons of 300 or 600 white rag replacement sheets (30cm x 60cm). They have the advantage over rags in that there is less wastage and they are more economical in so far as each wiper costs less per unit and per square meter. Another popular rag replacement alternative is the LINT FREE INDUSTRO WIPES , which are large woodpulp polyester sheets ideal for wiping down heavy equipment or glass windows. Made from the same woodpulp polyester blended fabric, a smaller hand sized version of these are the SOLVENT RESISTANT WIPES . All of these industrial engineered products are just as absorbent as T-Shirt rags, but are cheaper, lighter and less bulky than an equal quantity of rags, making them an attractive alternative, not to mention lower linting.

TIDDOX has a wide range of INDUSTRIAL JUMBO ROLLS OF WIPES suited to a host of tasks within industries including engineering and fabrication, transport and automotive, printing, manufacturing and mining, marine and aviation, food and beverage. Jumbo Rolls are best suited to bulk industrial usage, and also offer a low cost in use wiping solution. These disposable industrial wipes keep costs and waste down and productivity up in high-traffic workshop environments. Typical tasks where an industrial wiper would be used are when working with solvents, grease or oil, or preparing surfaces, abrasive wiping, cleaning of hands or tools, and other general wiping tasks that call for an industrial grade wiper that is strong,durable and absorbent. The CLASSIC JUMBO ROLL is a 300m general purpose wiper roll, dispensed from a floor stand and made up of 600 perforated general purpose wipes (30cm x 50cm), ideal for high usage areas. Manufactured with high levels of viscose this material has increased absorbency, which means less wastage as fewer wipes needed per use. Another popular Industrial Jumbo Roll is the 1000-sheet 3-ply tissue blue JUMBO PAPER ROLL (380m in length). This is an economical option for the workshop that is looking for easy disposable wiping of hands, equipment and other industrial cleaning tasks, from spills through to grease & oils. If a heavier, thicker material is required, for more heavy duty applications, then the tough, durable 475-sheet RHINO JUMBO BLUE ROLL (32cm x 34cm) is the solution. This 150m LOW LINTING / LINT FREE roll is perfect for rough surface preparation and other low lint applications where solvents are involved. This wiper is also available in the colour white and in a portable pop up box format - see INDUSTRIAL RHINO WIPES . A smaller medium duty version (in white) is the 220-sheet LOW LINTING / LINT FREE WHITE RHINO ROLL (22.5cm x 38cm).

Perhaps the most popular Industrial Wiper is the blue RAG ON A ROLL or "ROAR" , which is a 70m roll made up of 200-sheets of perforated scrim reinforced 4-ply tissue, extremely tough and durable. This is available in either blue or white and each carton contains 4 rolls.

Often used as a cost effective oil drop sheet under trucks and vehicles is the large 60cm x 50cm ORANGE SUPERMAX highly absorbent spill pads. This is an economical, highly absorbent industrial material that comes bulk packed in cartons of 200 Extra Large wipers. Given its high absorbency and thickness, and large surface size, these SHAMMYS / CHAMOIS products are ideal for washing busses, trucks, vehicles and boats. For smaller hand sized versions of these Super Wipes try our 40cm x 38cm MAXI WIPES
