LINT-FREE Wipes

TIDDOX® has a range of lint-free wipes and lint free cloths. These speciality cloths are designed for tasks where it’s important that no lint remains after wiping. For example, wiping delicate or sensitive surfaces. And, where you wish to avoid any lint contamination or lint-residue after wiping. Such as critical cleaning tasks.

What are lint-free wipes?

Lint-free wipes are wipes that do not leave fibre residue or “fluff” on surfaces after use. They are low in particles and ions and constructed in such a way that minimises fibre release when wiping.

When should you use lint-free wipes?

Lint-free wipes are recommended in any lint-sensitive cleaning application, or task where you wish to avoid any lint contamination, or lint residues left behind after wiping.

Frequently Asked Questions

Are lint-free wipes more expensive?

Typically lint-free wipes are more expensive than regular wipes, particularly if they use hydroentanglement technology.

Which are the best lint-free wipes?

The best lint-free wipes are those that do not release fibres or lint onto the surface when wiping. Look for wipes with low ions, low particles, tight construction and sealed edges.

What are the advantages of using lint-free wipes?

By using non-linting wipes, no lint residue gets left on surfaces after wiping. Hence, the surface does not become contaminated by loose fibres or threads from the wipes. Certain tasks are more lint-sensitive than others. For example, drying medical instruments, cleaning print heads or wiping down surfaces in cleanroom critical environments. Also, in food production, the last thing you want is loose bits of paper towel in the dry ingredient filler! So, the advantages of using lint-free wipes ensures that no contamination occurs as a result of the wipes used.

TIDDOX specialises in making and supplying lint-free wipes and lint-free cloths. Outlined below we discuss our various lint free cleaning clothsand wipes.
 

LINT-FREE GLASS CLEANING WIPES

For soft, lint-free cloths, we suggest the LintNIL GLASS WIPES. Because of their non-linting features, they’re ideal for cleaning glass surfaces. Not only are they lint-free, but they won’t scratch or damage surfaces. Hence, glaziers and glass manufacturers used them. In fact, these high tech wipes leave a streak-free finish after wiping. Ideal for cleaning windows, monitors and lenses. By making them with low levels of ions, there’s less loose fibres. As a result, this ensures no lint residue when wiping surfaces. 

 

Besides glass surfaces, they’re also great for drying instruments. And their softness makes suits delicate and sensitive cleaning tasks.  
Also, LINTNIL WIPES are solvent resistant. Hence they work well with chemicals.  In fact, sign makers use them to ensure surfaces are lint-free prior to applying vinyl.
 

CLEANROOM LINT-FREE WIPES

POLYSOFT LINT-FREE WIPES consist of continuous fibres. This makes them unlikely to shed loose fibers when wiping down surfaces. Specifically, the double-knitted interlocked fabric holds the fibres together. In addition, the wipes have laser sealed edges which further prevents loose fibres. As a result, these wipes don’t generate any loose particles. In fact, excess ions and particles are removed during the manufacturing process. Also, to further reduce risk of lint, the wipes are packed in two bags. Besides being lint-free cloths, they are also soft, non-abrasive, strong and tear resistant.

 

Because they don’t lint, lint-free CLEANROOM WIPES have many purposes. For instance, wiping lint critical surfaces in cleanrooms. Also, used for other lint sensitive cleaning tasks. For example, cleaning lenses, glass surfaces and stainless steel. Also used to clean computer discs, monitors, and touchscreens. In addition, food manufacturers use them to scrub hoppers. And they’re used regularly in the pharma and electronics industries. As well used for drying surgical instruments.

 

PRINT HEAD CLEANING LINT-FREE WIPES

Another industry that tries to avoid lint where possible is the printing industry. For example, the last thing you want is lint left on a print head after wiping it down! So, for these and similar print applications POLYSOFT LINT-FREE WIPES are used. For instance, cleaning ink build up on print heads and nozzles. Also, they’re used to clean inkjet heads, and scanner drums. In fact, any digital printing equipment or optical media printer. As a result, they’re recommended by makers of large format printers and flat bed UV printers. These lint free printer wipes are also suitable to digital graphic art tasks.

Also, their softness makes them popular with hospital patients and aged care residents. In fact, they’re use a lot for incontinence during personal care. 
 
Another lint free cloth favoured by dental practices, is the MICROMAX cloths. They use them to dry instruments that have been through the ultrasonic cycle. Once dry, they pop them into sterilising bags.
