In order to understand the
benefits and the advantages of IRONFIL iron filings it is best to know how
traditional iron filings are made.
Traditionally iron filings have
been a byproduct of iron workers in process of cutting or grinding iron or steel
parts. Cutting oils that are used to cool off the saw would contaminate iron
filings with oil or burned oil. Then iron-filings or shavings were spread on the
ground where the process is performed. Iron filings were then swept and
collected along with other dusts and debris. Those are contaminated iron filings
that are still being distributed by some suppliers.
IRONFIL iron filings are made from
high purity iron, steel or iron ore using a process that avoids all
contaminations. The final product is collected in a chamber. This product is
then separated and classified based on the particle size.
Only fine iron filings of mesh 70 or mesh 100
are packaged for use in science education or industrial uses.
