RS Components Teams Up with Big Wipes to Deliver Market-Leading Industrial-Strength Cleaning Wipes

RS customers worldwide can now clean up quickly and safely with superior-performing Big Wipes

Taipei, Taiwan, 26 March 2015:

RS Components (RS), the trading brand of Electrocomponents plc (LSE:ECM), the global distributor for engineers, has become the first global, high-service distributor to stock the Big Wipes range of industrial-strength cleaning wipes, which are specially formulated for faster cleaning and superior skin safety.

With their large size, specialist formula with skin conditioners, and unique high performance fabrics, Big Wipes can quickly remove unwanted substances such as PU foam, paint, varnish, silicones, glue, oil and grease from a wide range of different surfaces. The wipe can continue cleaning even when heavily soiled, so large clean-ups consume fewer wipes. The formula is biodegradable, preservative-free and compliant with the EU Cosmetics Directive, ensuring that Big Wipes are friendly to the environment and to the user's skin.

RS is stocking the complete Big Wipes range, which comprises Multi-Purpose, Heavy-Duty and Multi-Surface wipes in pack sizes from 80 to 240 wipes. Low alcohol content (approx 5%) means the wipes can be used anywhere without handling restrictions.
