Sticky cleaning swabs – ESD safe

Micro-Tec ESD safe sticky cleaning swabs are specially designed to remove particles from sensitive or delicate surfaces. Anti-static treatment of the plastic handles dissipates electrostatic charges, making them suitable for cleaning electrostatic sensitive components. The tips of Micro-Tec ESD safe sticky cleaning swabs are coated with soft absorbent gel which picks up particles. Sticky cleaning swabs can be used for the removal of contaminating particles – not displacing them and not causing cross-contamination.

Applications include removing particles, lint, debris from hard or difficult to reach areas, cleaning optical devices, removing particles from surfaces, cleaning components and for removing contaminating particles.

Micro-Tec ESD safe sticky cleaning swabs are available in three sizes (Ø1mm, Ø2mm and Ø3mm heads) and are sold ready-to-use in boxes of 10 and 25.

  3. For best result, use swabs at an angle of 60-90 degrees.
  4. Lightly touch particulates to be removed – use minimal force (about 10g) to avoid damaging sensitive surfaces.
  5. Do not wipe sticky cleaning swabs.
  6. To prevent secondary contamination please do not re-use sticky cleaning swabs
