Microfiber is the environmentally friendly material that provides a safe, easy way to tackle almost any cleaning job, with just water! Microfiber is a man-made fiber containing polyester (the scrubbing material) and polyamide (nylon absorbing and quick drying material).
Strands are approximately 1/20th the thickness of silk threads (1/100th the diameter of a human hair). The fibers are divided or "split" into sections through a chemical process, creating microfibers separated by interval spaces between the fibers. Unlike cotton, the fibers and interval spaces attract and hold liquid, dirt, grease and grime, holding it deep within the fiber.
This lint-free, streak-free, super absorbent material can be used dry to dust, polish and buff. A damp cloth cleans most washable surfaces without chemical cleaners or solvents. Unlike disinfectants that kill bacteria, microfiber removes approximately 97% of bacteria from surfaces.
In a similar way you determine the quality of sheets by the thread count per square inch, microfiber is graded by the grams of microfiber per square meter. Lower, retail grade microfiber has lower grams per square meter (g/sm). Our commercial grade microfiber products range from 350 grams to 750 grams per square meter (g/sm).
