SCRAPERITE is a plastic razor blade safety scraper designed for targeted scraping where a metal scraper or scrubbing pad would damage the underlying surface. Anywhere you might be tempted to use your fingernail but would prefer not to.
Road grime, dead bugs on the windshield, crusted food in the fridge or soap scum on tile, no need to touch any of it! Just use Scraperite plastic blades to lift dirt up and away. No messy rags or towels.
Scraperite is ideal for use on sensitive electronics, advanced composite materials, oil and gas, and in other professional sectors where non sparking, non metallic scrapers are mandated.
In general, most situations do not require a metal blade or scraper in the first place. Wood furniture and flooring, aluminum window frames, glass, auto paint, gelcoat and fiberglass, stainless steel, and chrome are all surfaces that could be scratched and damaged when using metal scrapers or scrubbing pads. Unlike scrubbing pads and rags, Scraperite blades lift unwanted substances up and away from the surface being cleaned. The blade can be easily wiped after each stroke with a disposable towel and reused until the edge wears or gets damaged before being flipped or replaced. Germs and dirt get thrown away with the blade and towel not caught between the fibres of a scouring pad.
Scraperite is also the only branded plastic scraper on the market with a business focus on creating quality purpose built product with consistent predictable performance.
Scraperite was born in South Florida USA in late 2003 and products launched in early 2004 after patents were issued. Plastic razor blades were an afterthought solution to an unexpected situation created when the auto industry introduced interior surface plastic coated windshields used to reduce glare. One or two, largely useless versions, were made available in the automotive sector as the industry struggled to patch a growing warranty problem of scratched coatings damaged during regular cleaning as people scrubbed with rags and towels.
The development of Scraperite came along during the late 1990’s as the founder sought a safer cleaning tool for use in the glass coating and tinting industry where accidentally scratching glass, cutting a sofa, or personal injury proved quite costly. The first iteration was a single edged version to test concept and provide an immediate solution for that service business where scraping the surface of glass with a metal scraper was common practice. Reality is, most situations do not require a metal scraper. A double edged version was developed and patented a few years later as people from all types of industries began asking for the product.
