Explore the world of high-quality industrial wipers from Scrub n Shine to discover which product best suits your specific applications.

Key Considerations Before Selecting an Industrial Wiper

Before diving into the wide range of industrial wipers available, consider the following questions to make an informed decision

  • Surface Type: Identify the surfaces you need to wipe.
  • Solution Application: Determine whether you are applying or removing a solution.
  • Solution Type: Specify if the solution is grease, oil, solvent-based, or water-based.
  • Setting: Are you in a manufacturing, automotive, or healthcare setting?
  • Price vs. Quality: Decide on the priority between price and quality.

Quick Comparison Guides

To assist you in the selection process, we’ve created quick comparison guides based on four categories: Low Lint, Absorbency, Wet Strength, and Durability.

  • Low Lint: The higher the grade, the less lint is left behind after use.
  • Absorbency: Higher grades indicate a wiper’s capacity to hold fluids.
  • Wet Strength: This grade reflects the tensile strength of the wiper when wet.
  • Durability: Compares the life of the wiper under general wiping conditions.
