Microfibre technology

The superiority of the Ceran covers is due to the particularly high-quality microfibre which cuts down on exertion and produces perfect cleaning results. In this way, this dry floor cleaning process guarantees an appealing look and the greatest possible maintenance of the quality of the floor covering.

About microfibre

Microfibres refers to fibres whose individual threads are finer than 1 dtex (short for „Decitex“). 1 dtex means: 10,000 meter of this extremely fine individual threads weigh just 1 gramme! By comparison: microfibres are twice as fine as silk fibres (the thinnest natural fibres), three times finer than cotton fibres and six times finer than human hair.  And this is also their advantage: Compared to other materials, microfibres with the same weight have a significantly higher volume. In addition, due to the production, the surface of a microfibre is significantly greater than that of conventional fabrics. As a result they offer a much greater „contact surface“ for dirt absorption than the fibres commonly used in mops and cloths. Due to their fineness, microfibres are able to develop a mechanical cleaning activity even in the micropores of surfaces which cannot be registered by the human eye, and easily disolve dirt and thanks to their hair-like scaly structure, capture them.

Electrostatic dust-catching dry cleaning

When the Ceran mop is used dry, friction results in an electrostatic charge in the microfibre. This leads to the attraction of negatively-charged dirt, without raising dust. Hair, lint, dust balls and other soiling is attracted and captured by the structured yarn surface. Sweeping and brushing are avoided and, when dealing with just light soiling, the desired degree of cleanliness can be achieved without the use of water or cleaning agents. In addition, the Ceran mop produces a slight polishing effect, for example on parquet, for an even better appearance.

Damp cleaning with capillary effect

Microfibre products have a very high fibre density. The water absorption capacity is facilitated through the considerably higher number of air chambers and the smallest pores between the fibres. The so-called capillary effect is responsible for the water absorption, as the microfibres themselves cannot absorb water. In this way, the micro­fibre material “sucks up” water and dirt or bacteria, the material lifted is bound to the individual fibres.
