TIDDOX® has a broad range of painting wipes, painting rags, and drop sheets for use with paints, solvents, spirits and chemicals, including graffiti removal products. Our speciality is lint-free paint wipes.



Painters and decorators require various consumables, including painting rags and painting wipes, and especially lint-free paint wipes. TIDDOX specialises in supplying these products to commercial painters across the country. Presented below is a brief overview and description of the TIDDOX product range.

The largest category in this product range are TIDDOX's painting rags. WHITE T-SHIRT PAINTING RAGS are by far the most popular as being white no dye will run into the paint job, and white shows up other colours easily. These are followed by the general purpose MIXED COLOURED T-SHIRT PAINTING RAGS . Other options of painting rags are white cotton, mixed coloured cotton (fleecy) and flannel. The packaging options are 1.5kg bags, 5kg bags or 10 kg bags.

In response to the rising price of white t-shirt painting rags, more and more of paint professionals are looking at synthetic wipers as alternatives to textile rags. A cheaper more convenient option than white rags are OMNIWIPES . The popularity of this product is that being white it also shows up paints well, but it has a higher absorbency capacity, owing to its ultra high viscose component (90%). Similar in size to the portable 1.5kg bags, each packs contains 50 pieces measuring 30cm x 60cm in size.

Other popular synthetic painting wipes used by painters and decorators, including graphic artists, are those made from woodpulp, viscose, polyester, polypropylene and polymide materials. These painting wipes are manufactured to ensure that they are low linting or lint-free paint wipes, so as not to leave lint on painted surfaces, and also are able to absorb solvents, paints and chemicals. Depending on the painting application, the painting wipes are made to varying tensile strengths, mostly are designed to be tear resistant, and vary in weight and thickness.

Top of the totem pole of lint-free paint wipes are the POLYSOFT WIPES . These 100% polyester cloths are tightly woven in a double knit format to reduce fibre particle release, and furthermore these cloths have had their edges laser cut and sealed to prevent any loose fibres. Extremely soft to the touch and non-abrasive, they are made from a very strong polyester material that is tear resistant. Great for wiping paint spills and other delicate tasks that require lint-free painting wipes that are paint and solvent resistant.

Large surface area painting wipes within the low lint / lint-free paint wipes category are the INDUSTRO WIPES . Each sheet is 55cm x 40cm, smooth on both sides and an excellent absorber of paints and solvents.

An economical, low lint wiper very popular with painters are the WHITE RHINO ROLLS , comprising 220 perforated pieces per roll. Each tear off wiper is made from a strong, absorbent wood pulp polypropylene material, which works very well with paints, oils and solvents.

TIDDOX has a thicker, heavier version of the above product, called the JUMBO RHINO ROLL. Also available in a convenient portable dispenser pull out box called RHINO POP-UP BOX.

A couple of other lint-free paint wipes to consider, both of which are manufactured from an absorbent, smooth microfibre material, are 40cm x 40cm multi-coloured MICROFIBRE LENS CLOTHS or the smaller sized LINT FREE MICROMAX WIPES. Both painting wipes are great for absorbing and wiping off paints and solvents from walls, surfaces and canvasses.

If surface preparation requires a more abrasive wiper, TIDDOX recommends its SOLVENT RESISTANT WIPERS which are have an abrasive texture on one side and are smooth on the other, making it an extremely versatile paint cloth. This product is made mostly from cellulose fibres, so it has very absorbent properties when it comes to solvents, ink, oils and chemicals.

Another surface preparation product to consider are the POLYPROPYLENE PREPARATION SHEETS .These thick, tear resistant pieces have a rubber feel to them (due to the meltblown polypropylene material that they are made from) and are used in the preparation of surfaces as they absorb paints, solvents, oils and chemicals.

There are a few disposable paper towel roll options that are also used by painters in general clean up tasks on site. One is the JUMBO BLUE PAPER TOWEL ROLL, comprising 1000 sheets of perforated 3-ply glued paper tissue, and the other is the CLASSIC 300M JUMBO ROLL, comprising 600 perforated sheets of viscose spunlace cloths. JUMBO ROLL FLOOR DISPENSERS are available for both of these jumbo rolls, which allow for easy tear-off dispensing of the perforated wipers from the jumbo rolls. For something even stronger, the "RAG-ON-A-ROLL" has an additional ply of wood pulp paper tissue, together with a reinforced nylon scrim webbing for added strength. All of these wipers absorb paints, oils and other solvents.

The SUPERMAX PAINT DROP SHEETS are large sized (60cm x 50cm) solvent absorbent drop sheets, that are available in economical cartons of 200 XL orange absorbent pads per carton.

TIDDOX also has a wet wipe option, in the form of our PAINT REMOVAL WET WIPES which are citrus soaked pull out sheets from a canister, that are coarse on one side and smooth on the other. This is a very useful disposable product to remove paint and oils from hands and brushes, as well as an effective graffiti removal wiper.

So, as illustrated above, there are a lot more options available to painters and decorators for painting preparation and cleanup that just painting rags. Please contact one of our staff members to discuss your painting requirement.
