Easy-Trap duster delivers innovation in dusting

Using specially developed disposable sheets, the 3M Easy Trap Duster is an efficient way to pick up dust and dirt.

According to the company, it traps and holds up to eight times more dust, dirt, sand and hair than traditional mops and other disposable systems.

The duster is recommended for facilities where cleanliness is crucial and wherever there’s a need for high image floors. It lowers drag which reduces worker fatigue, works in wet environments plus both sides of the duster can be used.

The perforated cloth is easy to dispense and attach to trolleys. The duster may be used with existing dusting tools and contains a minimum of 60 per cent recycled content.

“Combining our non-woven technology with our legacy in adhesive science, we have been able to develop this revolutionary cleaning material.  Apart from general dusting the 3M Easy Trap is ideal for floor preparation on recoating projects in retail centres as well as for use on vinyl floors in health care environments,” said Ranmalee De Silver, 3M Product Engineer.
