Kimberly-Clark Professional Wiping and Application Solutions Solve Aviation Surface Preparation, Cleaning and Paint Challenges

ROSWELL, Ga., Aug. 5, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Kimberly-Clark Professional announced today that its line of application-driven aviation solutions are qualified and listed on Aerospace Material Specification AMS 3819C and Boeing Material Specification BMS 15-5G. The solutions address the unique needs of the aviation industry and help workers perform more productively and efficiently.

Kimberly-Clark Professional offers a full line of application-driven wiping solutions that address the unique needs of the aviation industry, helping create measurable improvements in safety, quality, productivity and cost.

Specifically engineered to perform in all areas of Original Equipment Manufacturing (OEM) and Maintenance Repair Operations (MRO), Kimberly-Clark Professional offers a full line of application-driven aviation wipes that are designed to deliver superior cleaning, improved operational efficiency, reduced turn-around time and maximized productivity, while also meeting the precision standards and requirements of the aerospace industry.  Kimtech Wipes for Aviation are available in three categories: Surface Preparation Wipes; Cleaning Wipes; and a Wet Wipe System.

To complement these solution-oriented wipes, the Company also launched the Kimtech Large Surface Wiping Applicator. The applicator developed for the aerospace industry helps workers address the difficulties of cleaning and preparing large, contoured areas and elevated assemblies. The use of the applicator has shown an increase in productivity up to 56 percent1, eliminating over-processing, wasted time and wasted motion.

The Kimtech Large Surface Wiping Applicator uses aerospace wipes mounted on a flexible applicator head designed to hug contoured areas for more efficient cleaning. The ergonomically-designed handle provides better control during wiping tasks, while the adjustable pole extends and retracts so workers can wipe elevated and below-floor-level surfaces with ease. This design reduces the physical stress caused by awkward positions when hand wiping.

"At Kimberly-Clark Professional, we work with aerospace manufacturers worldwide to develop effective, task-specific product offerings," said Marianne Santangelo, Aerospace Target Market Leader for Kimberly-Clark Professional. "Aviation industry workers must have the best wiping tools available to make sure every job is done right the first time. Our goal is to help manufacturers uncover hidden opportunities to improve safety and productivity to help solve the customers' needs. We've seen workers in unnatural, unsafe positions trying to reach areas they need to prep. In addition, we've observed unsafe adaptation of tools, such as tying rags to mop heads, in order to prep hard to reach areas. We identify and address these types of challenges and innovate to solve our customers' needs."
