Flextip Swabs

Flextips™ and Flextips™ Mini Swabs are constructed from medical grade, 100 ppi, polyurethane foam which features fine cell structure, providing excellent particle entrapment characteristics. The foam is thermally bonded to the nylon paddle and the polypropylene swab handle without using adhesives. The tough nylon paddle is very flexible and virtually unbreakable. These swabs are ideal for general cleaning applications.
