Jones Companies, Ltd.
Jones Companies Ltd. is evolving the microfiber cleaning industry with its speeds microfiber cleaning system. speeds pads are made by utilizing Deep Groove microfiber technology called 4DG Technology, which is a registered trademark of Clemson University Research Foundation. 4DG fiber is produced by using only one polymer and is uniquely designed with deep grooves or channels that run along the length of each fiber. The grooves provide unique features to the fiber that can serve as ducts to move fluid and store and trap substances. Due to its one polymer construction, 4DG can endure bleach-safe laundering. In addition, speeds contains a multi-fiber blend that provides for additional absorption and is protected with an antimicrobial fiber to inhibit the growth of destructive bacteria on the pad. The blend is resistant to Staphylococcus aureus and Klebsiella pneumonaie. speeds pads are able to absorb over five times their own weight, trap and store dust and dirt particles, remove scuff marks, and transport cleaning solution, which all lead to cleaner floors and the prevention of the transmission of pathogens.
