TekniClean

Mixed Weave Microfiber Wiper

 Product Description

Tekniclean microfiber wipes are constructed with mixed weave yarn, as fine as 0.1 decitex, knitted extremely tight to ensure durability. The structure of the yarn (30% Nylon / 70% Polyester) provides hydrophilic properties of nylon, loipophilic polyester properties, and the capillary effect of the dense construction provides a high level holding capacity and superior wiping efficiency. We use a high temperature, high pressure process to split the yarn and release the 12-16 yarn wedges shrink the cloth up to 40% to increase density. This process provides an extremely soft yet textured fabric that will not scratch wipes surfaces. The wedge like yarn structure effectively traps and holds micro-contamination (particles & bacteria) unlike any other wiper. Sealed borders prevent fiber & particle release. Packed in static shield bags with ziplok seal to eliminate “hot”packaging & resulting tribocharge while maintaining traceability & product integrity in ESD sensitive environments. All Tekniclean wipes utilize Statistical Process Control and are lot traceable from raw material to finished product. Class 10 Laundered & Packaged.

Composition & Attributes

  • Tightly knit & pre-shrunk 70% Hi Strength Polyester & 30% Nylon fiber
  • Laser Sealed Edges provides best particle/fiber retention
  • Best “Pick up” for most critical wiping applications
  • Free of Silicon, Amides, and DOP contamination
  • Resists abrasion when used with rough surfaces
  • Works well with IPA and other cleaning solvents

Applications

  • Ideal for removing water & oil based contamination
  • Works well for process cleaning; ultra pure substrate / best performance
  • Silky texture will not scratch sensitive surfaces when force is applied
  • Works well for difficult particle removal; excellent abrasion resistance
  • Best abrasion resistance; excellent choice for wiping process tool chambers
  • Recommended for Optical, LCD, & Hard Disk Drive cleaning
  • Compatible with ISO Class 4-5 (Class 10-100) environments
