WHAT ARE THE DIFFERENT TYPES OF LINT-FREE CLOTHS?
TIDDOX specialises in making and supplying lint-free wipes and lint-free cloths. Outlined below we discuss our various lint free cleaning clothsand 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.
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 c
omputer 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.
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.

And, dental practices use them for drying dental instruments. Similarly, they double up as swabs for wiping down surfaces between patients. 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.
Finally, its worth mentioning one more lint free healthcare wipes product. Last but not least is the WHITE RHINO ROLLS. They offer medical facilities a cost effective, lint-free white wiping solution. For example vets and dentists use them to dry instruments. Also they make great disposable cleaning swabs. Because they’re solvent resistant they withstand sterilising solutions. And, these medical lint free wipes don’t leave stains on surfaces either. Wall dispensers available.
