Decontamination wipe could help corona virus cleanup efforts
As a wipe or mitt, FiberTect holds great potential for cleaning in settings where transmission of the corona virus is a main concern. Highly porous carbon in the structure can trap the vapors and aerosols in which microbes are contained. The wipe structure is flexible and can take the shape of the objects to be cleaned. The 3-ply structure without glue helps this effective cleaning.
FiberTect has previously been used successfully by the US military to decontaminate both personnel and equipment, for oil spill cleanup during the Deepwater Horizon spill in the Gulf of Mexico, and by emergency response teams across the USA in dealing with highly dangerous chemical substances, including Fentanyl.
