We guarantee you will be amazed on how much time you can save by using them to wipe-off Swissvax wax for example. Thanks to their extraordinary, thick and prime-quality (about 1kg/m2) microfibers, only one single towel will suffice to do an entire car. Truly "State-of-the-art" and extreme absorption levels are guaranteed by this high quality microfiber material, which consists of 70% polyester / 30% polyamide with its microfibers <0.02 Denier. In addition, A special silk seam for the use on automotive paint allows for the towels to be machine-washed up to 60° C. Removing the washing-instructions label before use is however advisable.
On today's market, microfiber towels can be found in all qualities. So here are a few tips on how you can differentiate between premium quality towels and cheaper alternatives:
a) The microfiber quality
Cheap microfiber towels do not have "split fibers" as the equipment required to actually "split" the fibers is very expensive. Quality microfiber towels offering genuinely split microfibers can absorb 7 to 8 times of their own weight (as split fibers offer a far superior larger absorption rate/surface).
b) The microfiber size
Cheap microfiber towels always have larger fibers (up to 0.5 Denier or more about the diameter of a normal polyester thread). Top-quality towels, however, are made of "real" microfibers measuring 0.01 to 0.02 Denier. The more fibers a microfiber tissue can offer per sq.-inch or m2, the better the results.
c) The microfiber material
As polyamide is far more costly than polyester, cheap towels often consist of 100% polyester or only contain a very small percentage of polyamide. This has obviously a significant impact on their absorbtion rate. A mix of 80% polyester and 20% polyamide is today's "quality standard". A 70%/30% prime-quality mix however, will absorb fluids even better AND much faster. As is most often the case, quality comes at a price.
d) The seams
For usage on automotive paintwork finishes, only seamless microfiber towels or premium towels with a silk seam are recommended as microfiber towels with stitched seams have the potential to scratch or streak paintwork.
