Nonwoven wet mop.

The Tuway American Group, Rockford, OH, has developed a nonwoven wet mop head made from rayon, polyester and wood pulp fibers. Tradenamed "Nu-Sorb," the mop can immediately absorb five times its weight in liquid, eliminating the break-in period of traditional cotton wet mops. Using DuPont's "Sontara" material, Tuway slits and converts the nonwoven roll good to produce the mop head. Nu-Sorb is approved for use in nuclear plants and infectious control areas and is able to be incinerated. The lightweight fibers offer a significant cost savings for facilities that dispose of hazardous waste mopping products by weight in costly landfills.
