Our story

Texwipe is the worldwide leader in contamination control supplies and critical cleaning products, including cleanroom wipers, cleanroom swabs, cleanroom stationery, sterile products, adhesive mats, and more. It all started in 1964 when Edward Paley invented a product to solve a problem that no one could see. The problem was micro-contamination – minute particles that were creating errors on the disk and tape drives of the burgeoning mainframe computer industry.
In inventing the first low-lint cloth for cleaning computer equipment, Mr. Paley created a company and invented an industry. In July 2001, The Texwipe Company, LLC was acquired by Illinois Tool Works, Inc. (ITW). Today, Texwipe is the worldwide leader in contamination control products and process materials for aerospace, automotive, biotechnology, food processing, data storage, medical device, pharmaceutical, semiconductor, telecommunications, and other industries requiring critical manufacturing environments.
