New pre-saturated wipes launch : SOCOSAT PPA80

Published on 31 March 2015

SOCOMORE Launches New Pre-saturated Critical Cleaning Wipes: SOCOSAT PPA80

As a pre-saturated wipe user, do you experience problems with linting when you use wipes on abrasive, riveted or etched surfaces? Does it cause you to lose time to remove the debris, or increase consumption from having to dispose of the wipes before they have been fully utilised, resulting in cost and performance losses?


That’s exactly why, in early 2015, Socomore launched SOCOSAT PPA80 pre-saturated wipes. These  pre-saturated wipes were developed for cleaning large surfaces that are riveted, highly abrasive and heavily contaminated in surface preparation cleaning operations, such as those found in the critical cleaning operations carried out in Aerospace OEM and MRO paint shops for example, prior to painting on painted or unpainted surfaces, metallic or composite materials.


SOCOSAT PPA80 wipes were designed to meet Aerospace cleaning requirements and have been tested and conform to AMS 3819C, the Aerospace standard for critical cleaning operations. They are very low linting, one of the key criteria for surface preparation operations, and have a high mechanical resistance to tearing, along with a high absorption capacity.


Developed as a cost effective, high quality alternative to other wipes on the market, SOCOSAT PPA80 wipes are available to purchase pre-saturated with DIESTONE DLS or DIESTONE A8284. The pre-saturated wipe system provides economic, environmental and safety advantages for users in comparison to the manual method of dosing cloths with loose liquid solvents. Advantages include:

  • Standardisation in cleaning operations
  • Improved quality and production line performance
  • Reduced waste and consumption: volume of pre-saturated wipes is 5-10 times less than the volume of loose liquid and cloth (cotton) required to clean the same surface area
  • Reduced VOC emissions
  • Improved operator safety
  • Elimination of the pollution and fire risks from accidental liquid spillages
  • Elimination of the usage, handling and storage issues encountered with loose liquids

SOCOSAT PPA80 pre-saturated wipes are available to purchase now in 70 wipe rolls (4 / box), designed to fit in JUMBO 24/16 dispensers for ease of storage and use in workshops. For non-critical cleaning operations, they can be reused after washing (max 60°C).


SOCOSAT PPA80 wipes have already been proven to perform well in some Aerospace OEM and MRO paint-shops.


They are a complement to SATWIPES C86, SOCOSAT VP60, SOCOSAT I80 and SOCOSAT P45 wipe applications.
