Finestar® products are made of microfiber. Their applications include cleaners for lens and display cases as well as clean room wipers used in the semiconductor industry.
Characteristics and features
FINESTAR® microfiber is a state of the art product which is less than 0.1 denier thick. This is thinner than 1/100th of a human hair or 1/10th of a thread of silk.
The ratio of nylon and polyester can vary from 80:20 to 50:50. Hyosung uses a ratio of 80:20 where polyester takes up 80 percent and nylon 20 percent.
In order to ensure an ideal structure as cleaners, the fiber is divided more than 16 times. Through this division, a V-shaped cross-section and a large surface are created, which plays an important role in removing various contaminants. See Figure 2.
