Microfiber Cloths & Microfiber Towels
What is microfiber?
Microfiber is a fiber with less than 1 denier per filament. The Denier is a measure of linear density and is often used to describe the size of a fiber or a filament (9000 meters of a one-denier fiber weighs only one gram). Fibers are combined to form yarns. Yarns are knitted or woven in a variety of constructions. While many microfibers are made of polyester, they can also be composed of Polyamide (nylon) or other polymers.
What is microfiber made of?
Most microfiber products are made of 80% Polyester, 20% Polyamide or 70% Polyester, 30% Polyamide.
How is microfiber manufactured?
Microfiber products used for consumer cleaning are generally constructed from split conjugated fibers of polyester and Polyamide. When a high-quality microfiber is combined with the right knitting/weaving process, it creates an extremely effective cleaning material.
What are the benefits of microfiber?
Thoroughly removes dust, allergens, and bacteria
Antibacterial - Proven wipe surface 99% bacteria free without using chemicals and without cross-contamination.
Highly absorbent - Microfiber can hold up to 7 times its weight in liquids.
Limitless utility - Household chores, auto detailing, and even personal use. Non-abrasive - Safe to use on stainless steel, crystal, cars.

What is GSM?
GSM or Grams per Square Meter is a unit of density of the cloth. Typically the higher the number, the better the quality. Some applications require a higher GSM than others.
What is the difference between Microfiber made in China or Microfiber made in
Korea? Answer is Quality!!!
For example: 100% of the Microfiber factories in Korea use machines
costing 1 Million. 90% of the Microfiber factories in China use machines
costing $100K. The difference is in the processing and finished work of
the cloth. It's like night and day difference. Our exclusive testing
results are proven by the quality of cloth or towel you get from Rosco
