Our industrial products have had extensive research and testing done on them by not just us, but our customers, because many of them are used in critical operations. Our products are proven in their ability to perform. For example, use of our Rymplecloth® has been proven by the Aerospace industry time and time again in actual trials to measurably reduce paint failures as compared to alternative products, and is therefore the product of choice for this industry. We are the product of choice at Boeing® and have been for over 50 consecutive years. Our industrial business is a worldwide business and we ship these products to numerous countries in Europe, Asia, and South America. We are the number 1 provider, by far, of critical wiping products to the Aircraft Manufacturing Industry, which, in and of itself, is a testimony that our critical wiping products are the best in the world and efficiently and cost-effectively perform the tasks for which they were designed.

Perhaps the best reason to choose us is our philosophy that the best innovation often occurs in the field, while working with the end-users of the product. Our R&D team not only works in our lab, our factory, and with our supply chain, but provides advisory services to our customers. The advisory services  that our company uniquely provides can easily reduce our industrial customers’ critical wiping costs by 20%-40%. Not every user is the same and situational uses of our products call for customized solutions.
