Cleanroom wipes with advanced technology improves yields
Creator of the patented CapSure® technology, Berkshire has launched ValuSeal® IONX®, a ground-breaking wiper with extremely low levels of releasable ions to tackle the most complex cleaning challenges.
The company's cleanroom wipes meet the Institute of Environmental Sciences and Technology (IEST) standards. They have been tested for fibers, particles, sorbency, non-volatile residues, and ions. Key layers of the wiper include the non-woven, knitted, foam, and microfiber layers, which are arranged in dry, pre-wetted, and solvent-compatible configurations.
Unique product options, such as new substrates, special sizes, packaging configurations, and saturation levels are also available.
Berkshire provides all the data, testing, and expertise to enable its clients to make the right wiper selection for their processes.
Cleanroom paper and notebooks for writing, printing, and photocopying
Berkshire provides high-quality cleanroom paper and bonds, which reduce the risk of chemical and particle contamination often associated with utilizing paper products in the cleanroom environment.
The company's cleanroom paper and notebooks are manufactured with the highest quality cellulose, which has been selected from particular forests. The coatings are also unique, to minimize particle and fiber release.
Each package is precisely cut to size, double-wrapped, and measured for consistent cleanliness. Paper is cleaned and double-bagged in an ISO Class 4 cleanroom. Paper is suitable for use in ISO Class 3-7, Cleanroom Class 1-10,000, and EU Grades B, C, and D.
Berkshire documentation solutions are perfectly designed for controlled environments, including laboratories, biotech research facilities, university and research, and aerospace, as well as electronic, semiconductor, circuit board and healthcare (USP 797) industries. In addition, they are widely used for biomedical device manufacturing operations.
