Kimberly-Clark Professional Launches Dusting System and Microfiber Wipers for Laboratories

Latest Innovations in Laboratory Cleaning and Maintenance
From the KIMTECH SCIENCE* Brand Family

ROSWELL, Ga. (October 5, 2007) - Kimberly-Clark Professional introduces a new line of KIMTECH SCIENCE* brand products for laboratory maintenance. The new products include the KIMTECH SCIENCE* Dusting System, KIMTECH SCIENCE* Lens Cleaning Microfiber Wipers and KIMTECH SCIENCE* Large Microfiber Wipers.

The products are designed to pick up more dust in more places, meeting the cleaning needs of laboratories and other controlled environments.

"Kimberly-Clark Professional has long been recognized for the development of technologically advanced products that consistently meet the quality needs of laboratories worldwide," says Brad Reynolds, category manager, Kimberly-Clark Professional. "These new products offer the same quality and performance the industry has come to expect from the KIMTECH SCIENCE* Brand."

The KIMTECH SCIENCE* Dusting System provides for fast, effective dusting of a variety of surfaces in a laboratory, including under, over and around surfaces, shelves and equipment. The system features a Duster Head, with 380,000 soft, flexible, dust-trapping polyester fibers that change shape for dust pick-up in crevices and contours where dust cloths can't reach. The environmentally friendly system dusts without the need for chemicals and leaves no residues.

The Dusting System also includes a reusable six-inch duster handle with an ergonomic grip. Ready to use with no handle assembly required, it folds for space-saving storage.

Microfiber Wipers

KIMTECH SCIENCE* Large Microfiber Wipers are ideal for cleaning delicate equipment and surfaces when more strength is needed than the market-leading KIMWIPES* Wipers. The new disposable microfiber wipers have excellent wet and dry strength and excellent water and oil absorbency (absorbing 4.5 times their weight). Extremely low in lint, the wipers clean without streaking or smearing surfaces.

KIMTECH SCIENCE* Lens Cleaning Microfiber Wipers are designed for high-end optical lens cleaning. They are extremely low-linting and clean without streaking, smearing or scratching delicate surfaces.
