All about microfibers and microfibers

All about microfibers and microfibersGone are the days when old T-shirts and towels served as a rag. Cleaning today signed a long-term contract with scientific and technological progress. And scientists have embarked on the warpath against dirt and invent more and more new means for better cleaning. And special thanks to them - for the microfiber!



Microfibers were first made in Japan in 1976. And in 1990, engineer Rudolf Nordin of the Swedish company Advanced Cleaning Technics AB patented ACTEX microfiber production technology.


Microfibers are made by extrusion: first, a star-shaped polyamide thread is dipped into melted polyester, and then squeezed through a microscopic hole. After the polyester has cooled, the circuit is detached. This is how an ultra-thin double filament is born, each component of which has a large micro-gap area.

Discuss on the forum: microfiber napkins


It is these micro-gaps in the microfiber filaments that determine its powerful absorbing properties. And small distances between thin fibers create high capillary pressure, which, like a vacuum cleaner, so easily absorbs grease, dust and water.

Microfiber myths

1. A microfiber cloth is an expensive fad

Simple arithmetic will help to scatter this myth like a house of cards. For example, an ACTEX napkin will serve for at least 5 years. During this time, you would need dozens of rags, ordinary and rubber gloves, several bottles of polishes, glass detergents, descaling, etc. But this is nothing compared to the harm that chemicals do to your family's health. Therefore, a microfiber cloth is a profitable investment that returns a hundredfold.

2. All microfiber is the same

Branded napkins differ from analogs in supermarkets only in price. The difference is in the price, but not only. The fact is that it is of great importance what the cross-sections of the threads are and how the fabric is made from microfibers. The best ways to create microfiber cloth are patented and the manufacturing companies keep them secret. And rags made of such fabric are many times more expensive, although they last many times longer and are better cleaned.

I would like to, of course, but it is not. Although branded napkins still provide hygienic cleaning. Microfiber does not kill, but absorbs bacteria and germs from the surface and keeps them inside. Thus, laboratory tests have shown that ACTEX wipes clean the surface of microorganisms by 98%. And this, we repeat, without the use of any chemical means. But do not forget to wash the rag with ordinary laundry soap after each cleaning.

4. Microfiber can scratch the surface

Holding a napkin in your hands, you can understand where this myth comes from. Matter practically clings to the skin. Microfibers penetrate the smallest irregularities in surfaces, removing dirt 100%. However, they do not cause any mechanical damage. This has been proven by numerous tests.

The truth about microfiber

  1. Cleans without streaks or scratches any surface: lacquered, chrome-plated, enameled, textile, wood, glass, mirrors, etc.
  2. Lint-free cleaning.
  3. Removes grease easily and without chemicals.
  4. Dries quickly after washing.
  5. Eliminates 98% of bacteria from the surface.
  6. Absorbs more moisture than regular fabric.
  7. Frees the house from dirt without the use of chemicals.

Microfibers in numbers

Just 453 grams of microfiber fiber is enough to cover the Earth's equator 10 times.

The diameter of the microfibers is 0.06 millimeters.This is 10 times thinner than natural silk fibers, 30 times thinner than cotton, 40 times thinner than natural wool, and 100 times thinner than human hair!

Microfiber reduces cleaning time by 50% and eliminates the use of chemicals.

Household chemicals in figures

200 ml. harmful substances that are contained in chemical products are consumed by a person annually.

Most dishwashing detergents are rinsed off after 38 rinses, some after 98 rins.

The concentration of toxic substances is 2-5 times higher in an ordinary house than outside.

Household chemicals contain 30-40% phosphates, which can cause diseases such as hypertension, stroke, heart attack, tumors.
