The Chemical Cloth Company's C-60 Tack Rags were launched back in 1967, in response to Boeing's need for a consistent quality product for use in preparing surfaces for finishing. Since passing Boeing's stringent quality control testing over 40 years ago, this product has been continuously specified on their QPLs to-date.

Tack Rags are cheesecloth pieces coated with a tacky substance that picks up dust, lint and metal shavings from surfaces to be painted. They work well on metal, composite and wood surfaces. Our tack rags are oversized (30 x 36) and folded to fit into 4 x 6 poly bags. They're individually wrapped and supplied in cases of 400, although we can supply less-than-case-quantities on request.

A combination of the high thread-count (20 x 16 as opposed to 20 x 12 as used in most other Tack Rags) and a unique epoxy resin coating, help to ensure that our soft and pliable Tack Rags are the superior choice available.
