Stainless Steel Wool is great for dozens of uses, including the filtering of minerals like gold and silver as well as gases and liquids. It is especially effective when used as a matrix in conjunction with High Gradient Magnetic Separators in the processing of clay slurry.
Our stainless steel wool is also the product of choice for packing custom mufflers for motorcycles and automobiles. Stainless steel wool is a better packing material for this application than the cheaper and less durable glass wool often used by low-cost muffler manufacturers. Stainless steel wool is not affected by the pressures and hot gasses found in vehicle exhaust and, unlike glass wool, will not compact and degrades less over time.
The ideal choice for many plant maintenance and filtration applications, Stainless Steel Wool withstands the high temperatures common in industrial processes and effectively fights rust and corrosion on metal surfaces without the shedding of rust-prone fibers.
The reels are wound from a continuous woven web 4” wide that is about 3/8” thick (but varies). The length of the web can vary a lot. For estimating length of the web we advise allowing 15 to 18 feet per pound.

Important Note: The Lustersheen stainless steel 434 reels are bulk reels weighing 14 to 16 pounds per reel. Some reels are 18 lbs. We guarantee a minimum weight of 14lb. We weigh the bulk reel before shipping and will credit back any short weight less than 14lbs. Any weight over 14lbs is your gain.
