Discover the truth about Lint Free Wipes
Did You Know: There Is No Such Thing As A Lint-Free Wipe?
“Lint-free” is a misnomer. How can that be? This often comes as a surprise to many of our customers who are often told that their applications require a lint-free wipe. Particle testing under both wet and dry conditions reveals that even the cleanest of wipes can never be completely free of the presence of lint and particle generation. “Lint” is a catch-all term referring to the short, fine fibers that separate from the surface of cloth or yarn. Lint is a consequence of using fabrics to make wipers, whether those fabrics are man-made polyester or nylon, natural materials such as cotton or cellulose, or blends such as hydro-entangled polyester-cellulose. Use a fabric, and you can’t escape the presence of accompanying lint.
