Dispenser Helps Eliminate Cleanroom Wiping Hassles

Kimberly-Clark Professional has introduced a dispenser for pre-saturated alcohol wipes that provides convenient one-handed dispensing with no need to hold a package or re-seal a closing flap.

"Until now, pre-saturated wiper packages were anything but easy," said Lori Morell, director of the wiper business for Kimberly-Clark Professional. "It was tough to pull out just one wiper, especially with a gloved hand, and packages were often difficult to re-seal, causing pre-saturated wipers to dry out."

The company says the new Kimtech Pure Dispenser makes cleanroom wiping easier than ever before through its patent-pending, proprietary features, including:

  • A self-closing, self-sealing lid that helps prevent dry-out of wipers, eliminating waste.

  • An extractor arm that automatically lifts each wiper for easy pickup without damaging the wipers.

  • A durable design that does not generate particles and makes refilling easy.

The Kimtech Pure W3 Pre-Saturated Wipers feature laser-sealed edges and are available in three formulations, including 70% isopropyl alcohol/30% deionized water, to meet a variety of cleanroom needs. The wipers are 100% continuous-filament double-knit polyester, cleanroom laundered, and solvent- and abrasion-resistant. All formulations are compatible for use in ISO Class 3 cleanrooms or higher. They can be used with or without the Kimtech Pure dispenser.

As with all Kimberly-Clark Professional products, The Kimtech Pure Dispenser and Kimtech Pure Wipers come with the company’s No Questions Asked Guarantee, which reimburses customers up to $1,000 worth of free product if the initial product purchased does not meet expectations.
