Swissvax - MicroDry - Microfibre Drying Cloth Grey

 

These super soft piqué (waffle weave) drying towels, made of a premium grade microfibre material, were specially developed for us in Germany to dry automotive finishes. The so-called Micro-Dry towel allows spot-free and fast drying, even of non-metallic black paints and glass surfaces. You will be amazed on how much time you can save by using them compared to a regular chamois leather. Its waffle-weave fabric made of 70% polyester and 30% polyamid has a pronounced pattern which increases the absorption surface drastically. This has obviously a significant impact on their absorbtion rate - excellent water holding capacities as well as spot-free quick drying are the result. The large size of 80 x 55 cm permits the use of a single Micro-Dry for an entire car - under the condition it was pre-treated with a Hydralip or a Waterblade. Otherwise we recommend to use 2 Micro-Dry towels per car.


a) The microfiber quality
Cheap microfiber towels do not have "split fibers" as the equipment required to actually "split" the fibers is very expensive. Quality microfiber towels can absorb 7 to 8 times of their own weight (as split fibers offer a far superior larger absorption rate/surface).

b) The microfiber size
Cheap microfiber towels always have larger fibers (up to 0.5 Denier or more what is in fact about the diameter of a normal polyester thread). Top-quality towels, however, are made of "real" microfibers measuring 0.01 to 0.02 Denier. The more fibers a microfiber tissue can offer per sq.-inch or m2, the better the results.

c) The microfiber material
As polyamide is far more costly than polyester, consequently, cheap towels often consist of 100% polyester or only contain a very small percentage of polyamide. This has obviously a significant impact on their absorbtion rate. A mix of 80% polyester and 20% polyamide is today's "quality standard". A 70%/30% prime-quality mix however, will absorb fluids even better AND much faster. As mostly, quality comes at a price.

d) The seams
For usage on automotive paintwork finishes, only seamless microfiber towels or prime towels with a silk seam are recommendable as microfiber towels with stitched seams have a big chance to scratch or streak paintwork.
