The proprietary technology and unique capabilites of microfilament technology will be the strength of Asterion to attract the commercial and institutional cleaning industry, according to the company.
Asterion is made from microfilaments that are 100 times thinner than human hair and five to 10 times thinner than microfibers. When used in the cleaning wipes market, Mogul’s microfilament technology performs well when cleaning dust and dirt commonly found in industry, light and heavy manufacturing and professional cleaning. Asterion wipes are a cost-effective, convenient and portable tool for spot cleaning and wiping irregularly shaped surfaces.
Asterion can be washed up to 300 times at temperatures between 30-60 degrees Celsius without degradation of strength, shape or surface, and can also be washed at up to 95 degrees C for the hospital and institutional applications. Other benefits of Asterion include lint-free, binder-free and high absorption.
Also, with unique endless filaments, Asterion dry wipes, in addition to difficult and sensitive surfaces, offer an ideal solution to clean or dry glass and painted surfaces. The endless filaments ensure dimensional strength and stability while ensuring safe, scratch-free, smear-free and lint-free wiping.
The microfilament fabric possesses a special structure, which is strong in all directions. Asterion wipes do not lose their shape or uniformity even after heavy use or multiple wash cycles. Also, Asterion does not leave particles behind during cleaning that could contaminate the environment.
