Precision Swabs

At last, little swabs to help you reach difficult places, or to work on extremely small areas as you perform treatments. Our swabs are offered in a variety of sizes to suit your needs. Some swabs with cotton or foam heads and paper or wood shafts may shred or dissolve in the presence of strong chemicals (including toluene, xylene, or acetone), leaving behind particles, fibers, or residual debris. We offer swabs which feature polypropylene heads thermally bonded to their handles, thus avoiding any glues, binders, or other adhesives which may prove to be detrimental for conservation purposes. Swabs 926-SP1 and 926-SP3 are good general purpose tools, while item #926-SP5 would be useful for more detailed applications, such as delving into tiny nooks and crannies. In addition, we offer small, 3 in. long cotton swabs with two round heads (numbers 926-SC2 and 926-SC3) and a single cotton head, 6 in wooden shaft # 926-SC9 for those conservation applications where harsh chemicals are not involved. Select the swab appropriate for your specific tasks.
