BEMCOT is a line of wipers for cleanrooms,made from Bemliese, the world’s only cupro continuous-filament nonwoven fabric

Origins

BEMCOT cleanroom wipers are produced from Bemliese,the 100% pure “cupro” cellulosic nonwoven derived from cotton linter-the fine,downlike fiber that naturally protects and cushions the seed of the cotton plant.

Cotton linter from around the world is transformed to pure cellulosic nonwoven sheets in an integrated process unique to the Bemliese plant of Asahi Kasei.
