Texwipe’s commitment to innovation, leadership and quality in cleanroom consumable products spans more than fifty-five years. We invest in technology to respond our customer backed innovation. The Revolve™ line of cleanroom products by Texwipe is a sustainable and evolutionary innovation in the way polyester wipers are manufactured.
Through extensive research on the performance characteristics of post-consumer polyester (also referred to as rPET), it was discovered that the rPET materials, processed through Texwipe’s manufacturing lines, demonstrated equivalent properties as virgin material. With these results and the teamwork between Texwipe and Unifi/REPREVE, a new line of products was born, culminating in the launch of Revolve™ products.
Revolve™ products, made from 100% upcycled polyester material, contribute to the sustainability goals by reducing the amount of post-consumer water bottles going into landfill and by reducing the level of carbon emission.
The polyester yarn used to make Revolve™ products is derived from post-consumer bottles. The bottles are collected and sent to the recycling center where they are sorted, cleaned, ground, and upcycled to make the REPREVE™ yarn. Texwipe uses the REPREVE™ yarn to make the wiper fabric and then further optimizes it to meet Texwipe’s standards for the cleanroom industry.
Every bag of Revolve™ product shows the number of bottles required to make the product. Since Texwipe only uses REPREVE™ yarn in the fabric of the products, the number of bottles required could seem quite large, as there is not much polyester available in a bottle to be made into yarn.
