NOVA-COT™ 100% cotton cleanroom wipes are woven from the highest grade cotton into a 2×1 twill construction. It is bleached, singed, and mercerized to remove virtually all impurities that are required to meet critical federal government and major semiconductor manufacturer specifications. This product contains no contaminating additives and is virtually chemically pure. It is bias cut; therefore, it is very low in particulates and stray fibers. Of course, virgin cotton is naturally absorbent, non-abrasive, biodegradable, and low in static.
