Formaldehyde 

Question

We are interested in a wiper that is good for absorbing large amounts of formalin (approximately 40% formaldehyde and 60% water). Any suggestions?

 

Answer

Any of our wipers would be compatible with that solution. If you want a nonwoven look for the ones with the higher Sorbency Efficiencies – the most absorbent for their basis weight.

 

EcoClean® 60 (6.5 mL/g)   

Pro-Wipe® 750 (6.5 mL/g)  

ValuClean® Plus (6.7 mL/g)

 

For a knitted sealed edge wiper you’ve got:

 

ValuClean-HA® (4.2 mL/g)   

MicroSeal SuperSorb® (3.9 mL/g)  

MicroSeal SuperSorb® Lite (3.8 mL/g)

 

SuperPolx® 1500, knitted non-sealed edge, is okay (4.2 mL/g).
