• High absorption of water
  • Good surface handle
  • High wet tensile strength
  • Pilling resistance
  • High liquid absorption capacity
  • Cleaning
  • Polishing

In order to achieve the required mechanical strength, the carded web for wipes and floor cloth is crosslaid and lightly needled. This results in a light, open structure where the isotropy can be improved by using random rollers in the card or a lap drafter. Reusable wipes typically have an area weight of 100 g/m² to 150 g/m² and floor cloth more than 150 g/m² due to the higher work load.

A subsequent treatment by polymer dispersion or thermofusion connects the single fibres and consolidates the structure.
