Fiberweb Inc., based in Old Hickory, TN, introduces KleanWipes DW wipes, a versatile cleaning wipe designed to remove submicron particles, fibers and chemical residue throughout the digital print shop.

Engineered with a double knit 100% continuous microdenier polyester filament, KleanWipes DW wipes are absorbent and abrasion resistant. This construction makes KleanWipes DW wipes suited to general wiping and cleaning sensitive surfaces, such as image areas and inkjet printheads.

The wipes are low-lint and solvent safe to enhance wiping efficiency for clean runs and improved equipment productivity.  Laundered and packaged in a Class 10 environment (ISO Class 4) to ensure consistent quality, KleanWipes DW wipes are suitable for Class 100 – 1,000 cleanrooms.

“The introduction of KleanWipes DW reinforces Fiberweb’s commitment to providing the print communication industry with comprehensive product solutions to support changing consumable needs,” says Dan Cronin, sales manager, Fiberweb Graphic Arts. “KleanWipes DW wipes are an economical solution to help remove contaminates such as lint, dust, and oils that can cause defects and delays in finished digital print jobs.”

KleanWipes DW wipes are available through many graphic arts distributors. In addition to wipes, Fiberweb Graphic Arts offers dampeners, splicing tape and automatic blanket cleaning products for prepress, pressroom, sheetfed and web press applications.
