The WP8200 Black Anti-Static Cleanroom Wipers are ideal for cleaning and final inspection of sensitive components in controlled environments. Cleanroom safe ESD wipers are the perfect cleaning choice for materials at risk for damage from static.
WP8200 ESD Wipers are constructed with 100% continuous filament, no-run knit polyester with laser sealed cut edges. These cleanroom-safe black wipes have been developed to clearly and visibly show small particulate contamination. Their properties make them useful for both the final wipe down and for the final inspection of any surface in a critical environment or anywhere particles compromise quality or performance.
WP8200 wipers are ideal for wiping critical surfaces to verify cleanliness. They can be used in various industries such as semiconductor, optical, medical, cosmetics, food & beverage, printed circuit boards, building maintenance, automobile, air craft, LCD, magnetic tapes, oil, tools, equipment, glass, optics, etc.
Why Use Black Wipers?
The purpose of wiping a surface with a cleanroom wipe is to remove contaminants including dust, dirt, oil, greases, soot, and flux. But, after wiping, how clean is the surface? How can an operator or quality inspector be sure?
Visually inspecting the wipe is the quickest and easiest way to check cleanliness. If the wipe looks dirty and the substrate looks clean, the wiping process was successful. That works well if the wipe and the contaminants are contrasting colors. Since most wipes are white, black or dark color soils are easily seen. However, many contaminants are not dark colored. Instead they are white or light colored. Since they are the same color as the wipe, visually inspecting the used wipe is not completely useful. This is especially true if the contaminant is particulate; especially small particulates.
Typical Surface Resistivity for the WP8200 wipers is 10^7— 10 ^8. Unlike wipers utilizing grids or stripes of conductive yarns, our ESD Black wipe is uniformly dissipative across its entire surface eliminating potential “hot spots” of charge or the need to contact to a specific grid for electrical discharge.
The WP8200 ESD Wipers are compatible with class 100-1000 cleanrooms (ISO4 – ISO6). Laser sealed edges ensure ultra -low lint and contamination and they are double bagged and vacuum packaged in cleanroom packaging.
The WP8200 is ideal for wiping exterior areas of products in Cleanrooms and ESD-sensitive areas as well as cleaning of process tools and other equipment. ESD wipers are used in many industries such as semiconductor, optical, medical, cosmetics, food & beverage, printed circuit boards, building maintenance, automobile, aircraft, LCD, magnetic tapes, oil, tools, equipment, glass, optics, etc.
