This silicone free, biodegradable, purified, crimped wiping cloth is manufactured from 100% woven cotton. It has a unique crimped finish and firmly twisted yarns that provides more surface area for collecting and trapping dirt particles. The soft texture and crimped stretch-like construction provides excellent surface conformity and memory. Our factory controlled purification process produces a highly absorbent wiping cloth which is compatible with cleaning solvents and will result in worry-free wiping and polishing.
Hermitex is used extensively by Boeing, Lockheed Martin, Northrop Grumman, Thikol, United Technologies, etc.
