Abbey Supply started out producing silicone based lubricants for air gunners, but we have now expanded into a large range of versatile cleaning products.
Our microfiber cloths are a versatile new addition to the Abbey Supply portfolio which can be used in wide range of domestic and industrial applications.
What are Microfiber Cloths?
Unlike other more basic textile cleaning tools, the strands in microfiber cloths are incredibly small. As a comparison, microfiber strands are typically around 14% of the diameter of a human hair and 30% smaller than silk.
Achieving this incredibly small diameter provides a number of beneficial characteristics to the cloths.
Firstly, the structures of the cloths enable them to be completely non-abrasive which is massively advantageous for cleaning extremely sensitive and delicate equipment such as monitor screens and reading glasses.
Additionally, using microfiber cloths does not produce build ups of lint (small material deposits) on the surface being cleaned. This not only removes the necessity of a second cleaning stage but is also beneficial in applications such as camera lens cleaning where lint may obstruct or hinder the final image quality.
This innovative material also has fantastic absorbent qualities and can be used on surfaces where moisture is a regular problem. Microfiber cloths have the ability to absorb over 7 times their weight in water and are 3 times quicker to dry than a conventional cloth.
They are also extremely durable and can be reused many times without tearing or breaking. The compact arrangement of the fibres makes cleaning small dust particles and other difficult materials far easier than other solutions.
One final and very important aspect is that microfiber cloths can be used to effectively remove bacteria without the need for cleaning chemicals. Simply adding water to the cloth is enough to enable a thorough removal of germs on the majority of surfaces.
Due to their aforementioned qualities, microfiber cloths are perfect for cleaning equipment such as:
- Airsoft guns and traditional guns
- Bike helmets, visors and other protective accessories
- Cameras and camera lenses
- Reading glasses and sun glasses
- Picture frames, glass cabinets and other homeware items
Abbey Supply has designed our cloths to be extremely portable and their compact size makes them the perfect addition to any cleaning kit.
