Cleaning Is the Best Defense

November 30, -0001

Talk about high-performance cleaning. A newly developed decontamination wipe designed by researchers at The Institute of Environmental and Human Health (TIEHH) at Texas Tech University has proven itself the best for cleaning up chemical warfare agents and toxic chemicals. The evaluation of the nonwoven dry wipe product, called Fibertect, was performed as part of a study by the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory using mustard gas and other toxic chemicals. Researchers found that the Texas Tech-created product outperformed 30 different decontamination materials, including materials currently used in military decontamination kits.

The technology has been licensed by Texas Tech’s Office of Technology Commercialization to Waco-based Hobbs Bonded Fibers. The company is organizing a global marketing team to expedite the commercialization of Fibertect. More info: www.hobbsbondedfibers.com
