How e-cloth works
An e-cloth is not just another microfiber cloth. Advanced fiber technology and superior chemistry are used in the manufacturing of these cloths to produce amazing results.
Take a moment to watch this video which explains the basics of these special technologies.
It is e-cloth's fiber composition, fiber size, fiber processing and density of cloth that allows e-cloth to achieve extraordinary cleaning and drying, outperforming all other cleaning cloths and cleaning methods.
Fiber Composition For the most part, an e-cloth is made from polyester and polyamide (nylon). It is the chemical properties of these materials that naturally draw things into the fibers as you clean. We pride ourselves on using highest quality raw materials in the world are used to make the micro-size polyester and polyamide fibers.
Fiber Size Unlike ordinary cloths, e-cloth fibers are designed and fabricated to provide maximum cleaning and drying power. Primarily made from polyester and polyamide, the tiny e-cloth fibers are 1,000 times finer than cotton fibers or 1/200th the diameter of a human hair. The fibers are the smallest in the world that can be made by man.
Fiber Processing During production, polyester fibers are split into eight pie-shape filaments (seen above) and polyamide fibers are split into an axle with eight spokes. The polyester pie shape filaments are combined with the polyamide to form a fiber that is 1/200th of a human hair diameter.
Fiber Density Each e-cloth is fabricated to have as many as 3.1 million* fiber strands per square inch of cloth. Nearly 500 million fiber strands are in each cloth. e-cloth's filaments are so small and so strong; using just water they break up, lift, lock in, and clean deep down into the tiniest grooves and crevices. Dust, grease, oils, grime, dirt and bacteria are quickly and easily removed and locked away deep inside the fibers until the cloths are rinsed or washed.
Surfaces are cleaned so effectively that there is nowhere left for bacteria to grow. Surfaces are left polished and totally smear and lint free. e-cloths rapidly absorb 7 times their weight in water.
In addition, scientific research carried out by world renowned Silliker Group, has proven that e-cloths also remove over 99% of bacteria.
* You may see a discrepancy between our website and our packaging in terms of fiber count. How did we almost double the number of fibers overnight? MATH ERROR! For almost 10 years now, e-cloth has been operating under the impression that e-cloths have 1.6 million fibers per square inch. The truth is, we screwed up the math. It is actually 3.1 million fibers per sq in. 480,000 fibers per cubic centimeter is the actual measurement and when we converted it to inches we erred. However you do the math, the error works in your favor. The number may have changed, but it’s still the same amazing performance.
