Wipes work best in galvanizing (zinc coating) wire line.

 

SIZES

Two (2) wipes placed in a pad holder device… then tightened to wipe the wire. Wipes are available in square cross sections from 3/4” (19mm) to 1-½” (38mm). Wipe lengths generally range from 1-1/2” (38mm) to 4” (102mm).  Common sizes are ¾” x 2”, 1” x 2”, 1” x 3”.  Metric sizes are available.  All wipes come with a resin dip prior to cutting, what we call 1 DIP. We do offer another resin dip after cutting, what we call 2 DIPS.

 

STYLES TYPE DESCRIPTION
PBW-XG Economy Less yellow outer shell material and more center core filler for a lower cost wipe.
PBW Standard This is our original wire pad wipe blend of yellow outer shell material and various types and sizes of center core filler.
PBW-P Premium More yellow material and less core filler. Construction has new reinforced centers, under where the wire runs along the wipe. More expensive, but expect the pads to last longer.
