Cleanroom Wipe Materials
Perhaps the lowest-linting material of them all, polyester can have the edges laser cut to prevent particles from breaking away. It is soft and durable making it ideal for a wiping a variety of surfaces. Close knitting and cleanroom processing can further enhance cleanliness.
Polyester/Cellulose blends – Polyester/Cellulose wipes are clean, absorbent and an economic choice. Like polyester wipes, this material can be cleanroom processed to further enhance cleanliness. It can be presaturated with a variety of solvents, sterilized, and cut to any size. Common for ISO 5 -7+ (Class 100-10,000) Cleanrooms
Polypropylene – Polypropylene is soft, non-abrasive and solvent resistant. Suitable for wiping sensitive surfaces and components. Polypropylene can be cleanroom processed and washed to further enhance cleanliness. It can be presaturated with a variety of solvents, sterilized, and cut to any size. Common for ISO 6 (Class 1000), in some cases ISO 5 (Class 100) Cleanrooms
Cotton – Economical, durable and environmentally friendly. (Common for ISO 6-7+)
Foam – Non-abrasive and solvent resistant. Suitable for wiping sensitive surfaces and components such as optics and printheads. (Common for ISO 6+, some variations suitable for ISO 4-5)
Microfiber (Nylon) – Soft ultra-fine surface, abrasion resistant, durable for wiping a variety of surfaces. (Common for ISO 5-7+, some variations suitable for ISO 4)
Do completely lint-free wipes exist?
The truth is that no cleanroom wipe is truly 100% lint-free. They simply do not exist. To produce a wipe that does not generate any particles whatsoever, the wipe would have to be manufactured of a completely solid material such as plastic. With that said, there are materials that are virtually lint-free. Some of the lowest linting materials are polyester knit, nonwoven polyester/cellulose blends, and microfiber blends.
The reason the term lint-free is used so widely can be attributed to several leading compliance organization such as USP and ISO. Both organizations reference and even recommend using “non-linting,” “non-shedding” and even “lint-free” wipes throughout their literature.
