Toray Industries, Inc., announced today that it will launch Toraysee™ for Shops and Salons around Japan in late March. The 30cm x 40cm cloth will retail at ¥900 before tax. It will be available through distributors for hair and beauty salons and food and beverage establishments, as well as through appliance stores, e-commerce sites, the Takezawa Online Shop, and Toray shops.
The company is bringing out the new offering to help salons, mobile phone sellers, opticians, and other shops offering in-store service to safeguard the health of staff and customers from COVID-19. It has become routine at such establishments since the pandemic began to have people disinfect their hands to prevent contact infections, install partitions to safeguard from airborne droplets, and remove pathogens from objects.
While frequently wiping tables, chairs, counters, and other surfaces as part of disinfection and sterilization efforts is also important, stores and salons frequently find this procedure very labor-intensive. Toraysee for Shops and Salons overcomes that challenge because it wipes faster and more effectively than regular cleaning cloths. Toray research found that the cloth can remove 98% of stains when it is dry and 99% when it is wet. The cloth is also economical because it can be washed and reused without compromising performance. The fabric employs a special, quick-drying weave.
Toray debuted the Toraysee brand in 1987 as an advanced cloth for wiping eyewear. The company has since expanded the range to include numerous popular cleaning products. It will continue to develop high-value-added merchandise for the Toraysee series in the years ahead.
