Modern wiping solutions involve bespoke designed industrial cleaning cloths. Such products are task specific in design and manufacture.

Task orientated manufactured wipers, engineered to reduce wastage and improve consistency. TIDDOX focuses on the design & manufacture of its industrial cleaning, task focused products. Our range of products has advanced and increased over the years. The result is various synthetic wipers that are high performance and cost effective.

RHINO WIPES 

Some tasks use heavy duty cleaning materials such as the RHINO WIPES. As the name suggests, these are STRONG, DURABLE and ABSORBENT. Perfect for dealing with oils or solvent spills. Very low linting so also ideal for some rough surface preparation. You have three RHINO PRODUCTS to choose from as outlined below:

  • The toughest, heaviest, thickest material in this category is the JUMBO RHINO ROLL. This thick cloth is a great substitute for rags. It is a heavy duty product that is strong, durable and absorbent. Blue in colour and packaged in a large 151 metre roll. Each of its 475 perforated sheets measure 32cm x 34cm.

RAGS

TIDDOX remains a market leading nationwide supplier of recycled T-Shirt rags. We supply both coloured and white, in either 10kg, 5kg or 1.5kg bags. RECYCLED T-SHIRTS RAGSare collected from scraps of used second hand T-Shirt materials. As such, they will differ in shape, size and texture. Scanned under a metal detector to identify any sharp metal objects. These are then removed, and compressed packed into plastic bags. The challenge with rags has always been the inconsistency of the materials. The absorbency of the differing scraps can differ. As such, not all rags are suitable for use resulting in wastage. Also, being cotton, they can leave lint residue after wiping. They arte also bulky and expensive to transport and store. The two most popular rag options are WHITE COTTON T-SHIRT RAGS or MIXED COLOURED T-SHIRT RAGS.
