A Microfiber yarn mop, Available in:

* PROTOMOP 10 (Yellow Band 10oz.)

* PROTMOP 16 (Blue Band 16 oz.)

ADVANTAGES OF MICROFIBER MOPS OVER EXISTING MOPS:

  • Retains standard head band/tail band mop construction but replaces cotton or poly yarn with microfiber yarn, a new material on the American market.
  • No “break-in” period. Ready to use immediately.
  • More absorbent – this means fewer trips to the mop bucket.
  • Better particle pick up due to the 1,000’s of ‘tiny fingers” – cleans better than present mops.
  • Lighter – our 16 oz microfiber mop will pick up more water than a 24 oz cotton mop
  • Glides on the floor, less torque than cotton mops - fewer injuries
  • Leaves the floor drier – this means safer floors.
  • Non-Linting.
  • Quick change of mop refills.
  • High tolerance to cleaning chemicals.
  • “GREEN” product as it cleans without chemicals and may be laundered 200 plus times.
  • Anti-microbial construction.
  • No smell – won’t go sour. 

This mop may also be irradiated and autoclaved for the industries concerned with viable particles. 

CLEANROOM CLEANING AGENTS AND MOP COMPARISON CHARTS

The Table below shows the effectiveness of PROTOGREENTM detergent compared to 12 Megohm DI water and a 70% Isopropyl Alcohol (IPA) and 30% 12 Megohm DI water.   Protogreen Cleanroom Surface Cleaner is as effective as or more effective than DI water or the IPA mixture. The average number of particles before testing were 463 @ 0.5 microns and larger and 80 @ 5.0 microns and larger.

The table below shows the effectiveness of PROTOMOPTM cleanroom microfiber floor mop compared to a spun polycell cleanroom mop and a 100% polyester cleanroom mop.

The microfiber mop left a surface cleaner by at least 1/2 magnitude than the other two mops sampled.   The average number of particles before testing were 463 @ 0.5 micronsand larger and 80 @ 5.0 microns and larger.
