Tork helps airplanes take flight faster and cleaner

This fall, the Tork brand, made by Essity (formerly SCA), a provider of customized solutions for highly technical business segments, landed in the Aviation industry with its wide range of tasked-based wipers, the company said.

Designed specifically to meet the demands of maintenance, repair and overhaul (MROs) technicians, Tork wipers help minimize aircraft maintenance downtimes, making the use of rags obsolete.

Tork provides a series of customizable wiping and cleaning solutions geared towards the Aviation industry. Whether it is for general maintenance like wiping hands, cleaning large spills and parts, or other tasks sensitive to linting or where static discharge poses a problem, Tork has a wiper optimized for the job.

Furthermore, dispenser systems located across workstations allow technicians to quickly access clean wipers designed specifically for tasks. By using these wipers, technicians are estimated to take up to 20 percent less effort, 30 percent less time and use 40 percent less solvents.

The Tork brand offers professional hygiene products and services to customers ranging from restaurants and healthcare facilities to offices, schools and industries. Products include dispensers, paper towels, toilet tissue, soap, napkins, and industrial and kitchen wipers. Through expertise in hygiene, functional design and sustainability, Tork has become a market leader. Tork is a global brand of Essity, and a committed partner to customers in over 90 countries.
