ABRATEC™ Abrasive Cloths

Corrosion of stainless equipment in sterile process manufacturing is a significant problem for many life science manufacturers. Corroded surfaces are difficult to clean and disinfect because the rough surfaces do not allow good contact in wiping and provide places for bacteria to accumulate. This can result in sterility failures and lot rejections. Replacement equipment is a major capital expense and also represents significant loss of production due to facility downtime.

ABRATEC abrasive cloths are made with various levels of abrasive grits backed with Contec’s unique Quiltec® fabric. Quiltec fabric is significantly more durable and abrasion resistant than similar foam-backed abrasives. This abrasion resistance and Contec sealed border technology allow the Quiltec side to remove sanding debris without contributing additional particles to the remediation process.

ABRATEC abrasive cloths are designed to work with non-ketone based solvents, including the IPA/water blends typically found in sterile processing environments as well as most commonly used cleanroom disinfectants. ABRATEC cloths are also compatible with autoclave and gamma irradiation processing to help maintain the integrity of sterile environments. ABRATEC cloths are cleaner, have lower particulation, and are more chemically compatible than similar foam-backed abrasive products.

Applications

  • Ideal for stainless steel remediation, disinfectant residue removal, and minimizing rouging due to residues and soils.
  • Designed to work with non-ketone based solvents, including the IPA/water blends typically found in sterile processing environments.
  • ABRATEC cloths are also compatible with autoclave and gamma irradiation processing to help maintain the integrity of sterile environments.
