Acme Synthetic Sponge Products
Synthetic sponges are sponges that are made through a combination of chemical process, as opposed to natural sponges that are simply harvested and processed. Because different types of sponges work better for different applications, Acme offers two different types of synthetic sponge lines in addition to our natural sea sponges. Our Duro-Cel™ line contains different sizes, shapes and formulations of polyester sponges and our Aqua Sponge™ sponges are made from cellulose.
Polyester Synthetic Sponge Products
Synthetic sponges that are made from polyester foam are very durable, elastic, light, economical and more chemically resistant than other types of sponges. Polyester sponge products are extremely soft, wet or dry, and have a super-absorbent honeycomb structure that make them an ideal choice for masonry, drywall, wallpapering and wall washing. The same properties that make them ideal for these types of applications also make them a good choice for all general home, auto and marine cleaning.
Cellulose Synthetic Sponge Products
Cellulose synthetic sponges, which are some of the most common types of kitchen and cleaning sponges, are exceptionally versatile and available in a variety of colors and shapes. Cellulose sponges are popular because they are extremely absorbent, soft, durable and inexpensive. Cellulose sponge products work well on many different types of surfaces, are great at absorbing and holding onto liquid, and can be sterilized with heat (boiling or microwaving) or an antibacterial soap.
Made from a form of wood pulp, cellulose sponges are not only versatile and durable, but also completely biodegradable. Because they are made from wood pulp, a sustainably harvested material, they are also environmentally friendly. Cellulose synthetic sponges are great for everyday kitchen, bathroom and other household cleaning, as well as for home, construction and specialty manufacturing applications.
Acme Synthetic Sponge Product Lines
Our synthetic sponge products have been developed for many different types of applications that synthetic sponges work best for. We recognize that having the right tool, or sponge, for the job saves time, money and effort, and have developed our Duro-Cel and Aqua brand sponges toward that end.
