Scott® Performance Flushable Folded Hand Towels (6659) are flushable and have been specifically designed to reduce the risk of blockages, perfect for areas with drainage issues.
All the Kimberly-Clark Professional Hand Towel and Toilet Tissue ranges have an unlimited shelf life. Providing they are stored in a dry and clean environment and away from direct sun light, they can be kept for years without impact on quality or performance.
All the Kimberly-Clark Professional Toilet Tissue ranges are designed to break down quickly in water.
We perform a variety of tests for all our products. The key test method for tissue dispersability is Kimberly-Clark Professional Water Break-up STM-00133. This test is used to determine the number of times a defined size of tissue is immersed in water before it breaks-up and can be flushed. The typical target is between 6 and 10 immersions and all our tissue products must fall within this specification before they are made available for sale.
Products made from 100% Recycled Fibre will break down (dissolve) in water within seconds. They don’t contain any additives to give them strength.
The Folded Toilet Tissue system is our most hygienic format, providing single sheet dispensing to ensure each sheet is only touched by the user. Designed to be used with our compatible dispensers, this system fully encloses and protects the tissues until use to ensure the highest standards of washroom hygiene can be met.
Kimberly-Clark Professional Facial Tissues are very similar to those we offer to the consumer market with different packaging formats to better suit business environments. The Toilet Tissue products have some variations, depending on the product and brand, to meet a number of different commercial requirements ranging from budget to high-end specifications.

Kleenex® Hand Sanitisers should be used within 3 years from the date of manufacture which can be found as follows:
- For codes 6380 & 6381 - Printed in black ink on the label at the top left of the product packaging
- For codes 6382 & 6383 - Printed in black ink at the bottom of the back of the plastic cassette
Hand sanitisers are considered to be ‘leave on’ products that can be used in the absence of water. The sanitiser rapidly kills any bacteria and micro-organisms (excluding spores) on clean hands to prevent cross-contamination and the spreading of germs. Hand sanitisers don't remove surface dirt which must be done using soap and water.
Gel sanitisers deliver a precise, measured dose with simple, non-drip application. Liquid sanitisers have a similar consistency to water and the dose delivered to the hand is therefore harder to measure to the same precise level as with a gel sanitiser.
WypAll* X and WypAll* L Cloths are designed to be used in a variety of environments and applications. The WypAll* range is ideally suited for a range of manufacturing sectors such as transportation, aviation and general metal manufacturing as well as catering and healthcare environments.
Many of our products have been certified for food contact purposes and we also have a special colour coded range which are particularly suited for catering and healthcare.
For further information, please view/download our Wipers brochure to find the perfect product to meet your business needs.
Wipers guarantee consistent quality every time with no danger of contaminants, delivering health and safety benefits to ensure optimal cost in use.
Compared with rags, our wipers are also presented in specifically designed handy formats to aid user convenience, help reduce waste disposal costs and reduce storage space requirements.
Our unique POWER POCKET technology provides better absorption, an improved cloth-like feel and increased scrubbing power. The built in pockets in each wiper help trap dirt quickly and effectively, leaving surfaces cleaner and reducing waste. Available in WypAll* X60, X70 and X80 Cloths.
All of our Wiper products have unlimited shelf life as they are made of fibre or a mixture of fibre and polypropylene which are inherently stable substances. The wipers should not, therefore, deteriorate if stored in a clean and dry environment at normal room temperature.
Our Cleanroom products Kimtech* Pure CL4 (codes 7605 and 7646) and Kimtech* Microfibre Cloth (code 7589) are all anti-static.
We also provide a great range of anti-static wiper products designed for the Aviation and Automotive industries. For Aviation see Kimberly-Clark Professional (codes 38664, 38665, 38666 and 38668) and for Automotive see Kimtech* (codes 38712, 38713 and 38715).
Our Microfibre Cloths can be washed at 40°C up to 300 times with detergent (we do not recommend using chlorine or softeners with this product).
Our WypAll* X Cloths can be washed at 40°C with detergent (we do not recommend using chlorine or softeners with this product).
WypAll* X is composed of approximately 85% cellulose fibres (for absorbency) and 15% polypropylene plastic fibres (for strength). The exact percentages change slightly depending on the grade of WypAll* X Cloths.
WypAll* X Cloths used with NON-HAZARDOUS materials do not require any specialised disposal methods and can be included in general waste.
If they have been used to wipe HAZARDOUS material or material which requires special disposal procedures then you should dispose of them in accordance with the specific regulations designated for the waste material type.
These products have not been specifically designed to be autoclaved. Kimberly-Clark Professional has not carried out autoclaving tests/analysis.
Based on composition of the WypAll* X range, approximately 85% cellulose fibres (for absorbency) and 15% polypropylene plastic fibres (for strength), the following is a reasonable outcome for the components:
- Cellulose fibres will withstand the temperature/pressure of autoclaving without any major deterioration in performance. There may be a slight decrease in strength properties because cellulose strength is dependent on Hydrogen bonds between the fibre. The use of steam could result in a wetting of the sheet and some of these hydrogen bonds being broken – however this is unlikely to be significant. The application of steam to the sheet might also cause some wrinkling
- Polypropylene plastic fibres will soften at much lower temperatures compared to the cellulose fibres, however temperatures exceeding 130° C will affect the overall strength of the product, weakening a key feature of these cloths
Silicone testing and limits are based according to AMS /BMS specification and testing is carried out through external laboratories.
Kimberly-Clark Professional does not add silicone to the product during manufacturing and none of the raw materials or process chemicals which are used contain silicone. It is not possible to give an absolute guarantee that WypAll* X Cloths are free from silicone, because we do not routinely test for the presence of silicone during the manufacturing process. The codes which can be confirmed silicone free areas follows: 38712, 38713, 38714, 38715, 38664, 38665, 38666, 38667, 38668, 49810 and 49812.
Our WypAll* L10, L20, L30 and L40 wipers are biodegradable, but the amount of time this takes is highly dependent on the conditions. It is a relatively quick in wet, exposed conditions (1 to 2 months), but will take a lot longer in dry or airless environments.
Storage recommendation as follows:
If in doubt, always check the product insert or packaging for guidance.
Chemical Resistance is measured using EN ISO 374-1:2016. This calls out the requirement to test against: EN 374-2:2014 (Water Leakage), EN 16523-1:2015 (Permeation) and EN 374-4:2013 (Degradation). Micoorganism Resistance is measured using EN ISO 374-5:2016. This calls out the requirement to test against: EN 374-2:2014 (Water Leakage) and ISO 16604:2004 (Blood-Borne Pathogens).
Chemical permeation performance is measured by testing for specific chemicals according to protocols set out in EN ISO 16523-1:2015. Please note that classifications are applied to permeation breakthrough times of chemicals versus gloves, specific chemicals do not have their own classifications. The permeation time is the time at which 1.0 µg/cm2/min of the test substance has permeated through the test material and the classifications are as follows:
Please visit our chemical protection database which will give you more exact information www.kcprofessional.co.uk/resources/chemical-protection-guide.
Micro-organism protection (EN ISO 374-5:2016) is applied when the glove passes the EN 374-2:2014 (Water Leakage) test method. In addition, our range of gloves also pass the ISO 16604:2004 (Blood-Borne Pathogens) test allowing us to guarantee protection against bacteria, fungi and viruses.
AQL stands for Acceptable Quality Limit and is a measure of the quality of a glove in terms of water leakage and other defects.
If you have high demands on the performance of a glove, you should choose a product with a lower AQL.
KleenGuard* Industrial Gloves have the following measurements:
- G10 Gloves have an AQL of 4.0 for pinholes
- G20 Gloves have an AQL of 0.65 for pinholes
- G80 Nitrile Gloves have an AQL of 0.65 for pinholes
Performance Level AQL Units are:
Level 3 < 0.65
Level 2 < 1.5
Level 1 < 4.0
Kimberly-Clark Professional does not directly include phthalates in any nitrile or latex glove formulations and we also have no reason to suspect that any of our raw materials contain phthalates.
Phthalates are plasticizers; substances added to plastics to increase flexibility. They are used to turn polyvinyl chloride from a hard plastic into a flexible plastic and can be used in vinyl gloves to impart softness and flexibility. Phthalates can leach from the plastics and users can be exposed.
All KleenGuard* and Kimtech* Apparel is clearly marked with its relevant PPE Type Classification and CE mark.
All KleenGuard* Apparel displays standard symbols to indicate which products meet or exceed the requirements of specific European Standards.
Type Classification is as follows:
- Type 1 Gas tight clothing
- Type 2 Non gas tight clothing
- Type 3 Liquid tight clothing
- Type 4 Spray tight clothing
- Type 5 Particle protection
- Type 6 Limited splash protection/PB (6) Partial body protection
- CE Simple – Minimal Risk Protection
Note: Kimberly-Clark Professional* do not produce Type 1 or 2 Apparel
All KleenGuard* Protective Garments conform to EN-340 recommendations for sizing as follows: (See table)
|Size||Height (cm)||Chest (cm)|
Garments used with NON-HAZARDOUS materials do not require any specialised disposal methods and can be included in 'everyday' waste.
If they have been used in HAZARDOUS environments or with HAZARDOUS material which requires special disposal procedures then you should dispose of them in accordance with the specific regulations designated for the waste material type.
Unfortunately, we do not offer a coverall that protects against gas.
KleenGuard* A20+, A25+, A30, A40, A45, A50, A65, A71 and A80 Coveralls are all made using anti-static fabric EN 1149-1:1995 for critical areas.
KleenGuard* A20+, A25+, A30, A40, A45, A50, A65, A71 and A80 Coveralls meet the EN 1073-2:2002 for radioactive dust protection.
KleenGuard* A30, A71 and A80 meet EN14126:2003 for Infective Agent protection.
Kimberly-Clark Professional do not make specific claims regarding low lint levels on any of their apparel range. However some products including the KleenGuard* A30, A40 & A45 have a film laminate construction with internal seams, which reduces levels of lint.
KleenGuard* Overboots and Overshoes are classified as Category I PPE and are designed for general use only. Kimberly-Clark Professional do not make specific claims regarding anti-static properties for the overboots and overshoes and do not test the products to control anti-static properties.
KleenGuard* A40 Overshoes and Overboots (with and without soles) are constructed using the same material as our A40 Anti-static apparel, which has liquid splash and dust barrier properties (suitable for Type 5/6) however in the case of these products it is not intended as primary protection to the foot, and therefore is marked CE simple. The soles on the Overboot/shoe are made from PVC; all products have elasticated tops/ankles for secure fitting.
Our coveralls are designed to be single use or limited use garments. This is indicated in the User Instructions which shows that they are not designed for washing.
KleenGuard* A65 FR Flame Retardant Coverall meets EN ISO 14116:2008 Limited Flame Spread.
All of our KleenGuard* protective garments have unlimited shelf life as they are made of substances that are inherently stable. The garments should not, therefore, deteriorate if stored in a clean and dry environment at normal room temperature without prolonged exposure to UV light or radiation.
If a product is stored over a long period of time (for instance, greater than 1 year) a periodic inspection of a representative sample should be made as a precautionary measure. As a standard safety precaution, it would always be recommended that a garment be inspected prior to use.
None of our KleenGuard* film laminate coveralls (A40, A80 and A71) would be suitable for autoclaving. We have not tested this for the other coveralls made from SMS material.
Our KleenGuard* accessories are not biodegradable.
The lowest temperature range for use with our KleenGuard* garments is -40c and the fabric starts to soften at the highest temperature of 120°c. This is applicable to KleenGuard*A20+, A25+, A30, A40, A45 and A50 garments.
It is important to state that the practical temperature range needs to consider the effect of temperature extremes on the user. Our garments do not offer the user protection against either high or low temperatures.
All KIMBERLY-Clark Professional Disposable Respirators meet the European Standard for respiratory equipment EN 149: 2001 + A1: 2009 and carry the CE mark.
FFP stands for Filtering Face Piece and refers to disposable maintenance-free respirators.
Classification is related to filtration performance levels as defined per EN 149: 2001 + A1: 2009 as follows:
The nominal protection factor of a respirator is calculated on the basis of Total Inward Leakage (TIL) which indicates the protection level of the respirator under laboratory conditions. A nominal protection factor of 50 means that the pollution inside the respirator is 50 times lower than the pollution outside the respirator.
Classification of the nominal protection factor is as follows:
The Dolomite Test is an optional test under norms EN 149: 2001 + A1: 2009.
The test consists of subjecting the respirator to breathing simulation in a controlled environment with a known high concentration of dolomite dust in the air. This ensures that breathing resistance and filter penetration are not substantially affected if worn in a dusty environment for an 8 hour shift.
Valves have a rubber membrane that closes when inhaling and opens when exhaling. They enable hot and humid exhaled air to be pushed out of the breathing zone in order to keep the face cooler.
They also help to reduce breathing resistance; particularly important for FFP3 respirators which have a thicker filter media.
Kimberly-Clark Professional will not accept any responsibility for use of respirators after the indicated shelf life of the product. Any use beyond this date will be at the users' discretion.
The minimum requirement according to EU regulations is for an entire shift (8 hours maximum) or sooner if the serviceability is suspected to be affected.
Respirators marked with the letter R (after the filtration performance level) can be reused at the end of a shift that is shorter than 8 hours, providing that they are kept in the original packaging and away from the contaminated area until worn again.
Reusability requires the on-going assessment of the conditions of the respirator by the user to determine the moment when it has to be disposed of and replaced.
Kimberly-Clark Professional do not make specific claims regarding anti-static properties for our Industrial Eyewear range and do not test the products to control anti-static properties.
