What is steel wool?

Steel wool is a composite of steel wires that have been stretched and interwoven to form a cohesive structure. This material has been a reliable tool in surface cleaning and renovation for decades.

Steel wool applications

Due to its properties, steel wool has applications in various sectors such as construction, automotive, cleaning, environment, etc.

Types of steel wool

Smooth steel wool

When crystallized, better gloss finishes are achieved thanks to its texture with more points of contact with the floor to treat wood and metal surfaces.

Curly steel wool

Its open structure allows better absorption of dirt and takes longer to clog. The rotary machine handles better because the sliding is smoother. Ideal for working with large presses and for treating first coats after polishing and first coats in general.

Steel wool strip

Its more flexible texture produces fewer shavings and avoids cuts. Produces a perfect and brilliant crystallization. Ideal for maintenance of clean and delicate floors

Steel wool manufacturing process

Steel wool is obtained by a mechanical process that, with the help of extremely hard blades, removes filaments from a wire. This results in a spongy mass of metallic filaments that resemble wool. By adjusting the sharpening process we can vary the thickness of these filaments, obtaining different grades ranging from thinner (00000) to thicker (3). To find the grade that best suits your needs, consult the thickness chart.

Properties of steel wool

Abrasive

The steel strands have sharp edges. Unlike sandpaper, which grinds the material with abrasive points, steel wool acts like thousands of tiny blades that polish the material, resulting in a smoother and more uniform surface.

Low density

Its open and porous texture gives it the properties of a filter and an insulator.

High iron content

Made of stainless steel, in addition to not rusting, it is not flammable and is more resistant to high temperatures and abrasion.
