Protecting sensitive environments from particulate during the manufacture of high-value electronics is no easy task.
It is imperative to reduce the potential contaminants that can cause product defects and associated yield losses. Sontara® is one of the world’s largest manufacturer of fabrics for the cleanroom industry. Sontara® fabrics were designed to help meet the challenges of keeping cleanrooms free from particulates and contamination on working surfaces. Sontara® fabrics for the electronics industry are equipped with outstanding strength, together with clean, low-linting properties and excellent absorbent qualities, even when wet. Engineered for use in situations that require “clean absorbency,” Sontara® wiping products are not woven or knitted into yarns, so they do not require binders, glues or other chemicals and adhesives to hold the fibers together or to make the fabric absorbent.
End user benefits
Safe in use
Sontara® products are made using proprietary technology for high demanding applications. High-speed water jets are used to hydraulically entangle polyester and pulp to form a strong absorbent web. Unlike many nonwoven fabrics, Sontara® uses no binders, chemicals or adhesives. It has exceptional mechanical strength, excellent absorbency, and because the fibers are washed during fabric formation, it exhibits very low lint. These unique features make Sontara® ideal for the cleaning requirements of the quality-conscious user.Discover the brand
