Dust – What is it?

Dust found within manufacturing processes has been known to contain small amounts of plant pollen, human and animal hairs, textile fibres, paper fibres, minerals from outdoor soil, human skin cells and many other materials which may be found in the local environment.

Dust – Why control it?

Dust, fibres and grit particles are a major source of paint defects causing nibs, rough finishes, imperfections and centres of weakness and corrosion.

The GRAMOS range of dust contamination control products help collect and contain dust, fibres and other causes of surface contamination. A wide range of TAKrags for surface wiping, TAKmats for floors and Barrier Curtain for airborne contamination help to regain control of surface contamination issues in the workplace.
