UK Microfibre Supplier
Fibre can be described as microfibre when it weighs less than 1 gram per 10km of length. For most microfibres, this equates to a diameter of less than 0.12 denier. To give you an idea, this is 100 times thinner than a human hair. Microfibre is made from a mixture of polyester and polyamide bi-component fibre. It is split into many micro-segments by special physical & chemical treatments.
How does microfibre work?
Microfibre has up to 40 times more surface area compared to normal fibre, making the fibre extremely absorbent. The capillary action allows for strong cleaning ability.
The wedge shaped fibre, together with polyamide core helps to attract and trap dust and dirt. It also is excellent for cleaning greasy surfaces without scratching.
Microfibres fine pores leave very little moisture behind. Any droplets remaining on the surface will evaporate quickly and leave it clean and smear free.
In simple terms microfibre grabs and holds dirt whereas regular fibres only push it around. Microfibre is the ultimate cleaning material for all surfaces and is available in cloth and mop formats.
What are the advantages of microfibre?
Microfibre cloths give quicker results and are more effective than conventional cloths. They are also very durable and will out last most cloths made from natural fibres.
The microfibre cloths leave the surface clean and smear free and remove up to 99.9% of bacteria from surfaces
There is no need to use chemicals as they clean with just water, making them very environmentally friendly.
The cloths are extensively washable. They can be laundered up to 400 times at 90 degrees celsius. When laundering the cloths only a standard detergent is required. No bleach or fabric softner should be used as this could inhibit the effectivness of the cloth.
