These super soft piqu (waffle weave) drying towels, made of a premium grade microfibre material, were specially developed for us in Germany to dry automotive finishes. The Micro-Dry towel allows spot-free and fast drying, even of non-metallic black paints and glass surfaces. You will be amazed on how much time you can save by using them compared to a regular chamois leather. Its waffle-weave fabric made of 70% polyester and 30% polyamide has a pronounced pattern which increases the absorption surface drastically. This has obviously a significant impact on their absorption rate - excellent water holding capacities as well as spot-free quick drying are the result. The large size of 80 x 55 cm permits the use of a single Micro-Dry for an entire car - For dark or black cars we recommend to use 2 Micro-Dry towels per car. Once you use a Swissvax Micro-Dry towel you will never use a chamois again.
On today's market, microfiber towels can be found in all qualities. So here is a few tips on how you can differentiate between prime-quality towels and cheap off-the-mill products:
a) The microfiber quality Cheap microfiber towels do not have "split fibres" as the equipment required to actually "split" the fibres is very expensive. Quality microfiber towels can absorb 7 to 8 times of their own weight (as split fibres offer a far superior larger absorption rate/surface).
b) The microfiber size Cheap microfiber towels always have larger fibres (up to 0.5 Denier or more what is in fact about the diameter of a normal polyester thread). Top-quality towels, however, are made of "real" microfibers measuring 0.01 to 0.02 Denier. The more fibres a microfiber cloth can offer per sq.-inch or m2, the better the results.
c) The microfiber material As polyamide is far more costly than polyester, consequently, cheap towels often consist of 100% polyester or only contain a very small percentage of polyamide. This has obviously a significant impact on their absorption rate. A mix of 80% polyester and 20% polyamide is today's "quality standard". A 70%/30% prime-quality mix however, will absorb fluids even better AND much faster. As mostly, quality comes at a price.
d) The seams For usage on automotive paintwork finishes, only seamless microfiber towels or prime towels with a silk seam are recommendable as microfiber towels with stitched seams have a greater chance to scratch or streak paintwork.
