Why do cassettes need to be wrapped with 2 wraps?

Regarding why cassettes need to be wrapped with 2 wraps, Practical Infection Control In Dentistry states as follows:

It is important to follow the manufacturer’s recommendations for cleaning, wrapping, and sterilizing the cassettes. 1

Likewise, Infection Control and Management of Hazardous Materials for the Dental Team states:

One should follow the cassette manufacturer’s recommendations for ultrasonic cleaning, wrapping or bagging, and sterilization. One should wrap cassettes before processing them through a sterilizer. 2
