Rymplecloth® & Aerotex™


Rymplecloth® is a purified wiping cloth of 100% cotton woven fabric with a unique crimped finish and firmly twisted yarns patterned in such a way to provide superior surface area for collecting and trapping dirt particles. Rymplecloth® is one of the most durable products available for cleaning and polishing. The product is biodegradable, silicone free, highly absorbent, and has very low lint properties.  The contamination retention properties or our Rymplecloth® are unmatched by any other wiping product, except a tack cloth.  The Rymplecloth® brand is the exclusive trademark of American Fiber & Finishing, Inc. and has been so since its original development and patenting many decades ago.

Rymplecloth® is a scoured product that is slightly off-white in color. Our Aerotex™ product is a very close cousin to Rymplecloth®. Aerotex™ comes in the same putups and sizes as Rymplecloth® and is identical in every way, except, Aerotex™ has optical white bleach added in the process, so its color is a bright white. Both products perform about the same and meet or exceed the required performance and properties needed for the AMS and BMS standards. Because the white bleaching process does put some stress on the fabric, the Rymplecloth® is a slightly stronger piece of fabric.

Rymplecloth® and Aerotex™ are ONLY sold by American Fiber & Finishing, Inc. or authorized distributors of American Fiber & Finishing, Inc.

Rymplecloth® and Aerotex™ crimped wiping cloths are cut layered on rolls of various customized lengths and widths, and sold by the case.  Our Rymplecloth® and Aerotex™ are also sold in a put-up of an uncut continuous roll as some customers prefer to cut the required piece for various jobs. Rymplecloth® and Aerotex™ are required by many of the users to meet certain specifications and is certified by the AF&F as follows:

  • Meets and exceeds AMS 3819C Standards
  • Meets and exceeds BMS 15-5G Standards
  • Compatible with all cleaning solvents
  • No contamination from chemicals as found in non-woven wipers
  • No contamination from foreign matter as found in rags

Rymplecloth®, followed by Aerotex™, have been and continue to be the the number one and number two products of choice in paint prep departments in the Aerospace Industry, including Boeing and many others. These Class 1/Class A wipers are the best and most economical wipers on the market for many Critical Wiping needs for many industries, because of their excellent contaminant trapping  properties, and ease and efficiency of use when a clean surface is required.
